Like kisses from ices
And Tiffany tokens
Life's full of surprises
So many emotions
Why try to fix
What isn't broken

Life comes in sovereigns
Love comes in gold
A cargo of moments
You'd swear you could hold
But it slips away somehow
(Where) nobody knows

[Chorus]
Love is it's own reward
Love is it's own reward
Take it or leave it
Fake it or feel it
Love is it's own reward

Hoist the mainsail
To perilous waters
Step below deck
You'll find elegant quarters
Who's gonna save you

If you should falter
Watch the main phase
Sail through the century
Rise like a star man
And blaze on re-entry
What's there to life
Running on empty

[Chorus]

Walking down Main Street
With Cupid and Psyche
Whom should we meet
But sweet Aphrodite
I fall to my knees
And praise the Almighty

We never go hungry
We never get bored
We are the future
That can't be ignored
Love can rob you of your thunder
And that's more than you can afford

[Chorus]

Love is it's own reward
Love is it's own reward
Take it or leave it
Let me reveal it
Love is it's own reward
