"I Want to Know What Love Is (Foreigner cover)" as written by Alex Parks, Judie Tzuke and Graham Patrick Kearns....
I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I'm older

In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
Can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I'm gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me
I've got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me

In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
I can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me, show me

(I wanna know what) I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me (and I feeling so much love)
AI want to feel what love is
I know you can show me

I wanna know what love is
Let's talk about love
I want you to show me

    General CommentWelcome back ''Classic'' Mariah!! I absolutely LOVE this version! I am so pleased to hear the voice I fell in love with 20 years ago! I hope she continues to sing like that, and not like she was for the past decade!!

    General CommentThis song is amazingly beautiful. What I take it to mean is that she has been burned so bad in previous relationships, and is hesitant to start a new one, and has even been running from love. But now someone is in love with her, and she is unsure of what she wants, but wants to try and feel the passion she wants so badly.

    General CommentI think I can relate to this song in so many ways, to me its somebody who has been hurt in the past and is afraid to let their feelings go with a new love. But now love has been found and Is ready to let the person in by asking them to show them what love is.... totally magical I think this is perfect for song for anyone who has been hurt but managed to found happiness, like I have xxx
