"What About Love" as written by Russ David Irwin, Martin H Frederiksen, John Gregory and Desmond Child....
[Boy:]
There's a hole in the sky tonight
Did the moon drift too far from sight?
I would search through this empty darkness
To see your face in the morning light

We've been lost in a sea of confusion
Got caught up in a selfish illusion
But make no mistake: I will bend till I break
Don't let fate make the choice for us

What about love that lasts forever?
What about time to see it through?
If you don't give you just don't get it
What about me?
What about you?

What about love?

[Girl:]
Once in a lifetime you'll find someone heaven send for you
For a lifetime you'll feel there's a reason to believe
In a love that's meant to be

[Boy:]
It feels like we've fallen from grace
Given up on the higher thing
'Cause I know deep inside if we search we will find
Something to give us wings

What about love that lasts forever?
What about time to see it through?
If you don't give you just don't get it?
What about me?
What about you?

What about love?

[Boy:]
I can't go on another day
Comin' home and seeing you cryin'
[Girl:]
Can't stand another night
Of telling you I'm tired when I'm dying

[Both:]
Forever means nothing
To live without you
Is reaching for something that never comes through
Together is heaven
Apart we're in hell
The time for forgiveness is now

Once in a lifetime you'll find
Someone to share your dreams
For a lifetime
Our love will always set us free
Forever we'll believe...

[Boy:]
I can't forget the feelin of your sweat upon my skin
And the tremble of your body on the day you let me in
It happens once, only once in a lifetime

[Girl:]
On a summernight's surrender with nothing to loose
You were scared and so was I when I gave myself to you
It happens once, only once in a lifetime

[Both:]
What about love that lasts forever?
What about time to see it through?
If you don't give you just don't get it
What about me?
What about you?

What about love that won't say never?
When you don't know what you can do
If you don't live you just regret it
What about me?
What about you?

What about love?

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song. BAT III is packed with unbelievable songs, many of which seem to reflect my feelings toward the woman I love. But this one hits it out of the ball park. it describes my current love relationship to a tee, and has given me the inspiration I need to try and set things right. It's a good thing it wasn't released on vinyl since the needle would have cut through it wilth the 100's of times I've listened to eat. A truly amazing set of lyrics, just like so many others he's sung.
