“Mwahahahahaha! Now you are mine, Lesley-Bird, finally, at last, in my... oh, drat, forgot it had wings...”

-Phil, the youngest Kalins Uzin


I don't know what love is
I don't know what love does
Please show me what love is
Please show me what love does.
Does it defend the broken and mend the poor?
Can it open your heart or open a door?
Can it satisfy or hunger or bring immeasurable pain?
Or will it just evade me again and again?
This is the endeavor
This is the attempt
To find true love
To find that first kiss
I don't know what it can do for me
I don't know what it wants.
Please show me what it can do for me
Please show me what it wants.
Can love count the stars in the sky?
Can it help pain pass me by?
Can it last for longer than death?
Can it stop my very last breath?
This is the endeavor
This is the attempt
To find true love
To find that first kiss
Now I know what love is
Now I know what is does
It defends the broken and mends the poor
It opens your heart and opens a door
It satisfies hunger and brings immeasurable pain
It has evaded me again and again.
This is the endeavor
This is the attempt
To find true love
To find that first kiss
Now I know what love can do for me
Now I know what it wants
It can count the stars in the sky
It can help the pain pass me by
It can last for longer than death
It can stop my very last breath
This is the endeavor
This is the attempt
To find true love
To find that first kiss
This was the endeavor
This was the attempt
I found true love
I found that first kiss

I enjoyed it! It deserved at least a favorite, I think everything deserves a comment by default. Thanks for posting on my stuff too!
