Fall into the century on a supersonic cross
 Blessed she in aching silence, eternal loss
 Calling out I won't surrender a locket of her hair
 Sympathize her pious pleasures, go down the stairs 
Into the dark again 
To feel alive again, and wait for

Real love
Or is it me you're after 
Is it time
 Cause it's now or never 
Real love
Real love forever 
Real love

Born of the ball and chain 
Into a world sustained with sorrow 

Real love
A real touch we speak in
Is it ours
Or is it what we're seekin'
Real love

In the eyes, behold and you'll find the 21st century 
You detonate her will and her widowed speech
 Buried in the backyard shadow, the rusty coffee tin
That held her mother's first kiss in a nameless dream
Fall down the stairs again
To feel alive against tomorrow 

Real love
Or is it me you're after 
Is it time
 Cause it's now or never 
Real love
Real love forever 
Is it love
Or just yours to treasure 
Real love
Real love
Real love

We never listen
Real love will listen 
And tell her of a fortune 
Real love is riches  Scratch through the changes 
Real love is nameless 
So tired and hopeless 

Real love is painless  Nobody mentions
We ever move to collect 
The solar questions
 Demon scorn should not relax 
The laws of gravity 

Real love
