Is my life not all that I thought it would be?
Is it simply ordinary?
Oh, is it far from all my fantasies?

I lay awake
I lay awake at night and brood
About the things I never do
And how I'm missing out on love and truth

Love and truth
Why are they so hard to achieve
Love and truth
They're such hot commodities
But come in such small quantities
Love and truth where are you?

I dance
I go out on the town and dance
I go and try to find romance
But all I come home is with empty hands
Oh, boo, hoo, hoo
Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Oh, cha-chagrin
But all I really want is love and truth

Oh, love and truth
Why is it that I cannot find these sweet delights
Oh, love and truth
If everything was up to me
I'd make sure that there was plenty of love and truth
Love and truth where are you?

    General CommentThis song is about longing for the kind of faithful unselfish and honest love that is most certainly hard to come by, the writer goes out and dances at clubs maybe and tries to find some legit loving but can not do so, and may only wind up in regrettable one night stands. Love and truth, where are you!

    General Commenti love mothe rmother!

    i added some more to it, basically the back up::

    Is my life not all that I thought it would be?
    Is it simply ordinary?
    Oh, is it far from all my fantasies?

    I lie awake (lie awake)
    I lie awake at night and brood (for you)
    About the things I never do (oh no)
    And how I'm missing out on love and truth

    Love and truth
    Why are they so hard to achieve? (to achieve)
    Love and truth
    They're such hot commodities
    But come in such small quantities
    Oh, love and truth where are you?
    Oh, where are you? Oh!

    I dance (a-shoob a-shoob)
    I go out on the town and dance (a-shoob a-shoob)
    I go and try to find romance (a-smooch a-smooch)
    But all I come home is with empty hands
    Oh, boo, hoo, hoo
    Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
    Oh, cha-chagrin
    But all I really want is love and truth

    Oh, love and truth
    Why is it that I cannot find these (sweet delights)
    Oh, love and truth
    Well, if everything was up to me
    I'd make sure that there was plenty of love and truth
    Love and truth where are you?
    Oh, love and truth where are you?
    Oh oh oh oh oh

    General CommentWhat a stellar song. I don't think I've heard one before that so clearly states how I feel a lot of the time
    Also, it's cute!
