You Don't Know What Love Is
Cassandra Wilson Lyrics


"You don't know what love is
Until you learn the meaning of the blues
Until you've lost a love you had to lose
You don't know what love is

You don't know how lips hurts
Until you've kissed and had to pay the cost
Until you've flipped your heart and you have lost
You don't know what love is

Do you know how a lost hearts fears
The thought of reminiscing
And how lips that taste the tears
Lose their taste for kissing

You don't know how hearts burn
For love that cannot live yet never dies
Until you've faced each dawn with sleepless eyes
You don't know what love is

Do you know how a lost hearts fears
The thought of reminiscing
And how lips that taste of tears
Ooh, they lose their taste for kissing

You don't know how hearts burn
For love that cannot live yet never dies
Until you've faced each dawn with sleepless eyes
You don't know what love is

You don't know what love is"

"For love that cannot live yet never dies"... one of the greatest lines ever written. I've never heard an interpretation of this song that so gets it. This woman has lived.

Elaine Diamond

Masterpiece. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ Exquisite arrangement, guitar, violin, and of course Cassandra Wilsonโ€™s vocals!

LoveIsKind

I couldnโ€™t tell if it was a violin ๐ŸŽป or a viola. Either instrument compliments the masterpiece of her vocal gift.

Audrey Ewart

Good version of a hauntingly beautiful song. Also check out Dinah Washington, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, each different from the other, but powerful. Ella Fitzgerald and Etta James too.

LoveIsKind

Great vocal queens, each in their own unique ways. ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ‘„๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ
