What Is Love
Miriam Makeba Lyrics


In this world where people are restless
Wondering where to turn
Looking for the answer
To a question they once learned
And they light their candle
But both ends do they burn

Asking love, what is love
When will they learn
Loving is love
Love, what is love
For people who know
The answer is always love

When you search for something that's missing
You may pass it by
Even though it's standing
Right before your eyes
Look into your heart
The answer's deep inside

You'll find love, what is love
When will you learn
Loving is love
Love what is love
For people who know
The answer is always love

Love, what is love
When will you learn
Loving is love
Love, what is love
For people who know
The answer is always love
