Oh here it comes
That funny feeling again winding me up inside
Every time we touch
Hey I don't know
Oh, tell me where to begin cause I never ever
Felt so much

And I can't recall any love at all
Baby this blows 'em all away

It's got what it takes
So tell me why can't this be love?
Straight from my heart
Oh, tell me why can't this be love?

I tell myself
Hey only fools rush in and only time will tell
If we stand the test of time
All I know
You've got to run to win and I'll be damned if
I'll get hung up on the line


No I can't recall anything at all
Oh baby this blows them all away


It's got what it takes
So tell me why can't this be love?
You want it straight from the heart
Oh tell me why can't this be love?

It's got what it takes
So tell me why can't this be love?
Straight from my heart
Oh, tell me why can't this be love?

Baby why can't this be love
Got to know why can't this be love
I wanna know why can't this be love

    General Commentumm... hmm, yeah, uh, hi. ledskynyrd, uhm, hmm, how should i say this.... SAMMY HAGAR KICKS A$$! as good as david lee roth, if not better, in my eyes anyway. you are however entitled to your own awkward opinion. 5150 = best van halen album.

    General Commentpersonally i think this is a song about loving someone who doesn't love you back even though the two go along very well. the lyrics are a bit ambiguous, but i think that's what comes out of it the most clearly.

    also i didn't notice it was sammy hagar the first time i heard. come on guys, if you want to argue about band members do it somewhere else, this is a lyric meaning site.

    General CommentMmmhmm.. yeah about that? Sammy Hagar does definitely not suck and you should be ashamed of yourself for stating such words, especially on a lyrics page for a song in which Sammy does lead vocals. Classy.

    Anyway, this is such a great song and is so true <3

    General CommentOne of NH's best songs, with brilliant use of keyboards to compliment the riff, brilliant stuff

    General CommentI like Sammy Hagar's era. I think it should be looked at in a separate context than the Roth era. However, there is something about using the word 'classy' to describe Van Halen that makes me want to cringe. It just doesn't seem right...

    I'll tell you why their are only 2 comments on this page. SAMMY HAGAR SUCKS. End of story. thank you


    this song is brilliant, and i completely understand why the person who put up the lyrics felt the need to use caps lock. listen to the song and you'll understand. the guitar solo blows me away...
