In My Life There’s Been Heartache And Pain

In My Life There’s Been Heartache And Pain

Well, I am not going to shy away from embracing today’s Song Lyric Sunday theme. There are so many very emotional songs out there, and the one I have picked churns deeply. Who has not heard these lyrics and felt moved by the desperate cry out tot he universe they contain?

The chart topping “I Want To Know What Love Is” from Foreigner, is probably there best known hit. What a track! If you want to pack emotions into a song – here is a lesson in how to produce a power ballad which is impossible to forget!

I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I'm older

Now this mountain I must climb
Feels like a world upon my shoulders
Through the clouds I see love shine
It keeps me warm as life grows colder

In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
Can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I'm gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me
I've got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me

In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
I can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
And I wanna feel, I want to feel what love is
And I know, I know you can show me

Let's talk about love
I wanna know what love is, the love that you feel inside
I want you to show me, and I'm feeling so much love
I wanna feel what love is, no, you just cannot hide
I know you can show me, yeah

I wanna know what love is, let's talk about love
I want you to show me, I wanna feel it too
I wanna feel what love is, I want to feel it too
And I know and I know, I know you can show me
Show me love is real, yeah
I wanna know what love is...

  1. Michael Jones wrote this as an expression of his private life over the three years before, where he was experiencing frustration with not finding a perfect relationship. Several of his relationships eventually failed, he was going through a divorce, but still kept searching for something, because he wanted to experience a universal feeling of love and hope.
