I've been lonely
I've been waiting for you
I'm pretending and that's all I can do
The love I'm sending
Ain't making it through to your heart

You've been hiding, never letting it show
Always trying to keep it under control
You got it down and you're well on your way to the top
But there's something that you forgot

What about love?
Don't you want someone to care about you?
What about love?
Don't let it slip away
What about love?
I only wanna share it with you
You might need it some day

I can't tell you what you're feeling inside
And I can't sell you what you don't want to buy
Something's missing, you gotta look back on your life
You know something here just ain't right

What about love?
Don't you want someone to care about you?
What about love?
Don't let it slip away
What about love?
I only wanna share it with you

What about love?
Don't you want someone to care about you?
What about love?
Don't let it slip away
But what about love?
I only wanna share it with you

Oh, no
Oh
Oh, what about love?
Love
Ooh-ooh-ooh
What about love?
Love, love, love
What about
What about
Love
Ooh-ooh-ooh-oh

    General CommentIt is about a guy who is focused only on his career and won't share his feelings. He has become successful and portrays confidence in his job ("well on your way to the top"), but it is just a facade ("you've been hiding, never letting it show, always trying to keep it under control"). She isn't sure if he is scared, jaded, struggling with past heartache, etc. ("I can't tell you what you're feeling inside"), but she knows that she can't help him change if he isn't willing to help himself ("I can't sell you what you don't want to buy").

    She makes a plea to him to realize that love is passing him by. If he doesn't change, he's going to wake up one day to realize he's become a lonely, regretful old man.
