Hank Jones

You Don't Know What Love Is
You don't know what love is'Til you've learned the meaning of the bluesUntil you've loved a love you've had to lose,You don't know what love is.You don't know how lips hurtUntil 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 heart fearsAt the thought of reminiscing,And how lips that taste of tearsLose their taste for kissing?You don't know how hearts burnFor love that can, not live yet never dies.Until you've faced each dawn with sleepless eyes,You don't know what love is.
