"Love Hurts" as written by and Boudleaux Bryant....
Love hurts
Love scars
Love wounds and marks
Any heart not tough or strong enough
To take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain
Love is like a cloud, it holds a lot of rain
Love hurts
Ooh love hurts

I'm young
I know
But even so
I know a thing or two, I learned from you
I really learned a lot, really learned a lot
Love is like a flame, it burns you when it's hot
Love hurts
Ooh love hurts

Some fools think
Of happiness, blissfulness, togetherness
Some fools fool themselves, I guess
They're not foolin' me
I know it isn't true I know it isn't true
Love is just a lie made to make you blue
Love hurts
Ooh love hurts
Ooh love hurts

I know it isn't true
I know it isn't true
Love is just a lie made to make you blue
Love hurts
Ooh love hurts
Ooh, love hurts, ooh

    General CommentI get so much crap for having this song proudly featured on my Morpheus playlist. I'm sorry, this song is the epitome of the great genre known as the power ballad. Cheesy, yes. Bad, no. Wonderful, most def.

    General CommentThis song is entirely true, I could not agree more with it. Love is painful, there's no way to keep it from hurting. Yes, the song is cheesy. What it means, is not. I think most everyone could relate to this song.

    General Commentanyone whos heart has ever been broken... they know this is true...

    its meaning is so simple... but... its just saying what most artists hint at at some point.,.. they point to a specific broken heart... a time when lvoe hurt them... this just sums it up

    General Commentmyfavoreiteunderwear- I'm 15 and I love this song. I get hell all the time for not liking the "in" music, but who fucking cares!

    I was named after a Nazareth song and I will forever love them. And this song is the best broken-heart song I've ever heard.

    General CommentGreat song, great band. Got to actually see them perform few years back. The lyrics speak for themselves. However, this song was originally written and performed by the late, great Roy Orbison :)
