"Love Rears Its Ugly Head" as written by and Vernon Reid....
I always thought our relationship was cool
You played the role of having sense
I always played the fool
Now something's different
I don't know the reason why
Whenever we separate
I almost want to cry

[Chorus]
Oh no, please not that again
Love rears up its ugly head

And when I come home late you don't complain or call
So as a consequence I don't go out at all
My friends are frightened
They don't know what's going on
They think you put a spell on me
And now my mind is gone

[Chorus]

Love's not so bad they say
But you never know where love is gonna go

Does anybody really know?

I'm standing at the altar
As they play the wedding march
I'm in a black tuxedo with my collar full of starch
She looks as lovely as she's ever gonna get
I wake up from this nightmare in a pool of sweat

[Chorus]

What you gonna do
What you gonna do when it comes and gets you?

    General CommentOnly one comment? This is a cool love song and an unexpected follow up to Cult of Personality. Shows that they, Living Colour, have another side to them.
