"The Thing About Love" as written by Linda Perry and Alicia Augelo-cook....
Love
Love will come find you
Just to remind you
Of who you are

Hold on
It will forsake you
Threaten to break you
Take what you got

Everybody laughs
Everybody cries
Sure it could hurt you baby
But give it a lil' try
See that's the thing about love

Friends
Sometimes will blind you
Sneak up behind you
You cant give enough

Then life
It will embrace you
Totally amaze you
So you don't give up

Everybody laughs
Everybody cries
Sure it could hurt you baby
But give it a lil' try
See that's the thing about love

Don't tell me that I'm not the only that's going through it all
Oh sometimes I feel like I'm the only that's going through it all
But its time
Oh its time
For me to shine
Hey
Its my time
Oh its time
For me to shine

Its my time
Said its my time
For me to shine
Its my time
Its bout time
For me to shine

Everybody laughs
Everybody cries
Sure it could hurt u baby
But give it a lil' try
That's the thing about love
That's the thing about love
That's the thing about
That's the thing about love

    General CommentYou have to give love a try! That's what she's trying to say that there are all the emotions that come with love... joy and pain, but in the end it's worth it so you have to give it a chance. This is a great song.

    General Commenta good song, one of my faves on this album.

    Its saying how love is carzy and can be hard, and break u down, but then on the up side, surprise u and make it all worth it. Its not easy but u have to give love a chance and thats the only way you will be able to receive ehat ur perhaps looking for.

    General CommentShe's saying that love is a risk. But, in the end, it pays off. She also mentions a few times that it is a scary, yet incredible experience.

    A lot of people give up on love or feel that they will never experience it. And I guess she's saying don't give up, and don't give in.
