Love hurts, love scars, love wounds and mars
Any heart not tough or strong enough
To take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain
Love is like a cloud, it holds a lot of rain
Love hurts, ooh-ooh, love hurts

I'm young, I know, but even so
I know a thing or two I learned from you
I really learned a lot, really learned a lot
Love is like a flame, it burns you when it's hot
Love hurts, ooh-ooh, love hurts

Some fools think of happiness, blissfulness, togetherness
Some fools fool themselves, I guess, they're not foolin' me
I know it isn't true, I know it isn't true
Love is just a lie made to make you blue
Love hurts, ooh-ooh, love hurts, ooh-ooh, love hurts
