These are the hands of a tired man
This is the old man's shroud
These are the eyes of a blood-crazed tiger
Staring at the maddening crowd

This is the face of a teenage mother
This is the child she bears
This is the soul of her broken lover
Searching for the smiles they shared

These are the feet of the punished pilgrim
And in his book of punished love
You see the eyes
You see no surprise
Waiting for a lie that's true

Everybody hits you with this feeling
Nobody seems to understand
Yeah, you stop, you look
You're searching for the meaning
Of love
Wasting your life away

These are the dreams of a sleeping father
And in his long lost days
He sees a child
He sees his own eyes
Waiting for the price he's paid

These are the tears of a fallen idol
And in his smile of shattered love
You see his eyes
You see no surprise
You just see lights and realise

Everybody hits you with this feeling
Nobody seems to understand
Yeah, you stop, you look
You're searching for the meaning
Of love
Wasting your life away

All about me
Here with you
There’s no one here like you
Nobody lives like you
Nobody, nobody touches like you

Everybody hits you with this feeling
Nobody seems to understand
Yeah, you stop, you look
You're searching for the meaning
Of love

Everybody hits you with this feeling
Nobody seems to understand
Yeah, you stop, you look
You're searching for the meaning
Of love

Everybody hits you with this feeling
Everybody hits you
Everybody knocks you down
You stop, you look
You're searching for the meaning
You stop, you look
You're searching for the meaning
Of love, love, love, love
