Can U give me true love? Do U know what love is?
Can U give me true love U're hidin' from urself?
Can U give me true love? Do U know what love is?
Can U give me true love?

4 someone who's never lost 4 words
U're quiet now, how can that b?
Just because I wanna know ur heart
Tell me now, is that selfish of me?

Loving U is like loving a rare Van Gogh, I see what U want me 2 see
Oh, the more I get closer 2 U, the farther U get from me

My love is rushing thru a field of roses where we lie
Leapin' off mountain tops until we start 2 fly
My love is waiting where the sands of time and oceans kiss the shore
Wherever U r my love is now and 4evermore

Can U give me true love? Do U know what love is?
Can U give me true love U're hidin' from urself?

Introduce me 2 ur demons
I won't let them hurt U, no no no
Trust me, I'll b here and all the pain I'll undo
All the planets say I'm supposed 2 b with U

Loving U is like loving a rare Van Gogh, I see what U want me 2 see
The more I get closer 2 U, the farther U get from me

Can U give me true love?

So much sadness n the world
We need solace 2 get by
And real peace is no result of wealth, U've got 2 know ur inner-self
Nothing's lost if we don't try

Don't U wanna?
Don't U wanna try?
Don't U wanna try?

And I've waited 4 so long, 7 years and I'm still holding on
So much love we're missin', a million tender kisses
But U won't let it b

Loving U is like loving a rare Van Gogh, I see what U want me 2 see
Even the more I want U closer, the farther U get from me
Farther... away from me

My love is soaring on the clouds that eagles fly
My love is watching where an angel kisses souls goodbye
My love is waiting where the sands of time and oceans kiss the shore
Wherever U r my love is now and 4evermore

Do U know what love is?
Do U know what love is?
Do U know what love is?

Loving U is like loving a rare Van Gogh
Loving U is like loving a rare Van Gogh
