A dee dee dee dee doo doo

I was a victim of my foolish thinking 
Carelessly I've risked my love and my life 
There's no self-pity, I admit I obliged 
Overpowered by love I pretended to be blind 

Faith has survived all the doubts I've summoned 
My heart has stood all the failure and loss 
Helpless I cannot further be driven, ooh, ooh 

I've learned to respect 
The power of love 
I've learned to respect (Oh) 
The power of love 

I've learned to respect (Ooh) 
The power of love 
I've learned to respect (Oh) 
The power of love 

I was always afraid of being the one left hurt 
Running away from the one thing 
for which I've always yearned 
I'm not ashamed to tell you 
many nights I've tossed and I've turned 

I've learned to respect (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
The power of love 
I've learned to respect (Oh) 
The power of love (Yes, I did) 

I've learned to respect (Oh ooh) 
The power of love (Woo, woo, woo) 
I've learned to respect (Oh) 
The power of love 

I need you, I want you beside me (Beside me) 
I trust you, I believe, I believe in you 
I adore you, I love you so 
Don't you know I learned 

I've learned to respect (I've learned) 
The power of love (Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) 
I've learned to respect 
The power of love (I've learned) 

I've learned to respect 
The power of love (Baby, baby, baby, I've learned the power of love) 
I've learned to respect 
The power of love (I learned it, yes, I did, oh) 

I've learned to respect (Yeah) 
The power of love (And I'm not ashamed to tell you, oh) 
I've learned to respect 
The power of love (Oh, honey, honey, I need you) 

Oh, it's that power, oh 
Baby, baby, baby, I've learned 

I've learned to respect 
The power of love (And I'm not ashamed to tell you that) 
I've learned to respect (Oh) 
The power of love 

I'm talkin' about the power, yeah 
I'm talkin' about the power, oh (Power of love), ooh
The power, oh, ho 
It's so good, it's so good to me 
I'm talkin' about power, oh (Power of love)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah 

The power of love, ooh 
Yeah, say it to me 
You're talkin' about (Power of love) 
And oh, let's talk about the yearnin', oh 
And everybody, I, I, I wanna talk about the feelin', ooh (Power of love) oh, ho 

I wanna talk about the screamin', ooh
