lyrics

V1
Love
What did you mean by Love?
Is that the word you meant to whisper
With kisses down her neck?

Love
What did you mean by that?
And what did you expect would happen?
She'd pat you on the back, stand up and
Start slow clappin'?

Love
What did you mean by Love?
I think you meant 'like you strongly'
Unless you meant 'just your body'
Just enough to stay
But not enough to fall
Instead of giving up
What did you mean by Love?

V2
Hope
What did you mean you hope so?
Did you mean you were less than likely
To head over your heels, because your heart was
Just not there?

That's what you could've said
No hieroglyphics to decipher
No beatin' 'round the bush
Just set the bush on fire, but...

Love
What did you mean by Love?
I think you meant 'see you later'
'It's really been a bunch of fun but now it's done'
I know...
You probably have to go
But I'd still like to know...

CH
What did you mean by Love?
What did you mean?
What did you mean
When you said
Love?
What did you mean when you said Love?

V3
Love
It's more than just a word
You thought that you could test the waters
Droppin' the atom bomb...
Well, now the water's turning

Red
And all the fish are dead
Floatin' around my head
With all the other things I could have said to make you

See
Just what you mean to me, but
The damage has been done...

CH
What did you mean by Love?
What did you mean?
What did you mean
When you said
Love?
What did you mean when you said Love?

Oh, Love
What did you mean?
Love
What did you mean when you said Love?
