(l-o-v-e) four letter word lyrics – billy squier

billy squier
creatures of habit
(l-o-v-e) four letter word
l-o… whaddo i know
v-e… she’s not comin’ back to me
l-o… i can’t let go
v-e… tell ya what that girl don’t mean to me
so you see my friend…
love is just a four letter word

once there were schoolyards with children at play
once there was england… and one sunny day
one kinda woman for one kinda man
how could i know i was not in her plans

say love… say love

when i was soarin’ you urged me to fly
when i was hungry you fed me your lines
led me to water… you sang me your song
one day when i woke up i found you were gone

say love… say love…
say love… say love…
n*body told me… love is just a four letter word

l is for losin’ the love that you crave
and o is when it’s over and your heart can’t explain
v is for the victim… the victim of the crime
and e is every morning when you break down on time
so you see my friend… love is just a four letter word

l-o… i can’t let go
v-e… friends all say just let it be
l-o… oo-oo
v-e…

forget your illusions… forget what they say
’cause all your dreams of happiness
have just blown away
once in a lifetime your spirit will fly
that’s what she told me ‘fore she told me good-bye

love… say love
love… say love
so you see my friend… love is just a four letter word

l is for losers when fortune turns blue
and o is overcomin’ what you know to be true
v is for the vengeance that’s left out in the rain
and e is each and every night you crumble in pain
so you see my friend… love is just a four letter word
so you see my friend…
i say “stop – don’t say it”
so you see my friend… love is just a four letter word

l-o… whaddo i know
v-e… she’s not comin’ back to me
l-o… i can’t let go
v-e… tell ya what that girl don’t mean to me

we’re just the victims of the powers that be
