"You Don't Know Love" as written by Thomas Michael Smith, Christopher Dominic Urbanowicz, Russell Leetch and Edward Owen Lay....
You don't know love like you used to.
You don't feel love like you did before.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh!
Ohhhhhhhhhhhh!

You ran with the dead today,
With the moles from the CIA,
They see more than you ever see.

Headlights in your rear view mirror,
A panther's eyes as he preys on fear,
You hunt for love, you electioneer.

Ohhhhhhhhhh!
Ohhhhhhhhhh!

You ran with the dead today,
Through the cemeteries where ghosts still play,
The more you ran, love got further away.

One look an I sore inside,
Every little thing you've died to hide,
You were the truth when you lied.

Ohhhhhhhhhh!
Ohhhhhhhhhh!

You don't know love like you used to,
You don't feel love like you did before.
You don't feel love like you used to,
You don't feel love like you did before.

Ohhhhhhhhhh!
Ohhhhhhhhhh!

You don't know love like you used to,
You don't feel love like you did before.
Ahh You don't know love like you used to,
You don't feel love like you did before.
Ahh You don't know love like you used to,
You don't feel love like you did before.
Now you don't know love like u used to,
You don't feel love like you did before.

You don't know love like you used to.

    General CommentI think it's obvious that this song has a political subtext like "Eat Raw Meat". By the way, the lyrics from the booklet are different: it's "a panther's eyes as he PRAYS on fear", "the more you ran, love got further away", "one look and I saw inside"... Well just read the damn booklet that comes with the CD and stop uploading wrong lyrics.

    Maybe it's about a spy whose job forces him to lie, cheat, fake, pretend, etc. He has to push his family and friends away to keep them from harm. He does things that he feels are wrong but he ignores his conscience and just obeys orders blindly. Eventually, he becomes some kind of robot who can't feel anything.

    The "headlights in your rear view mirror" line gives me a cinematographic image of him runnig away from everything in his car, with other agents chasing him in the dark. Maybe he has realized that he doesn't want to be a spy anymore, but that's not a kind of job one can quit easily... Very James Bond-like, anyway.

    General CommentCorrect lyrics from the cd's booklet

    You don't know love like you used to
    You don't feel love like you did before

    You ran with the dead today
    With the moles from the C.I.A.
    They say more than you ever say
    Headlights in your rear view mirror
    A panther's eyes as he preys on fear
    Your hunt for love, you electioneer

    You ran with the dead today
    Through the cemeteries where ghosts still play
    The more you ran love got further away
    One look and I saw inside
    Every little thing you’d die to hide
    You were the truth when you lied


    You don't know love like you used to
    You don't feel love like you did before
    You don't know love like you used to
    You don't feel love like you did before

    You don't know love like you used to
    You don't feel love like you did before
    You don't know love like you used to
    You don't feel love like you did before
    You don't know love like you used to
    You don't feel love like you did before
    You don't know love like you used to
    You don't feel love like you did before

    You don't know love like you used to


    This is a song about politicians in my opinion - about how they loose their innocence and don't feel and know love like they did before as all they care about is how they will get more votes.
    The reference to C.I.A. at the beginning shows its interference with politicians and probably its guidance.
    Politicians hunt for love (e.g. votes) as they electioneer.
    But the more they run (the more they try to get votes) the more they become resentful.
    And once people look at them they discover that they are lying and trying to hide the truth.

    General Comment"You Don't Know Love"


    You don't know love like you used to,
    You don't feel love like you did before...

    You ran with the dead today
    With the moles from the CIA,
    They see more than you ever see.

    Headlights in your rear view mirror
    A panther's eyes as he preys on fear,
    You hunt for love, you electioneer.

    You ran with the dead today
    Through the cemeteries where ghosts still play
    The more you rack, look out further away.

    One look and I soar inside
    Every little thing you die to hide
    You were the truth... when you lies.

    You don't know love like you used to...
    You don't feel love like you did before,
    You don't know love like you used to...
    You don't feel love like you did before.

    You don't know love like you used to...
    You don't feel love like you did before,
    Oh, you don't know love like you used to...
    You don't feel love like you did before.

    Oh, you don't know love like you used to...
    You don't feel love like you did before,
    Oh, you don't know love like you used to...
    Oh, you don't feel love like you did before!

    ...You don't know love like you used to.
