Oh Where is Love ?

(McDonald/McAlinden)

      

Does he know his evil crime?
Smiling all those wicked lies
He stole a lifetime and a simple innocence
Why should the child apologise?

Find you, when you seem so small
The child in you, trusting me for a moment-
It's only there for a moment

Oh, where is the love?
I guess it's locked inside
You couldn't reach out for
Your heart was gagged and bound
What kind of love, love, love
Is going to get you back?
Where is the love?

I can almost touch her pain
I can smell the lonely fear
And if the heavens rained kisses down I'm sure
The blessed stain wouldn't disappear

Find you, when you seem so small
The child in you, trusting me for a moment-
It's only there for a moment

Oh, where is the love?
I guess it's locked inside
You couldn't reach out for
Your heart was gagged and bound
What kind of love, love, love is going to get you back?
You had to run, run, run
There's no place to hide, hide, hide
You know that I'm in love with you
You know that no-one else will do
Nothing that I wouldn't do -
Anything for you
