Lyrics

Answer to Love

She stares out the window
Watches the wind blow
Alone in her small rented room
The dusk becomes night
So she turns on the light
But the air still hangs heavy with gloom

Her friends have moved on
First they're married, then gone
And she wonders if he'll ever come
The one she's dreamed years for
Shed lonely tears for
'Til all she can feel now is numb

Chorus:
And they tell you, oh, they tell you
To wait for a sign from above
How they tell you, they try and sell you
But who knows the answer to love

He pulls out his seat
And he sits down to eat
The evening lies empty ahead
He stares at the placemat
And thinks of the space that
Sleeps next to him on the bed

His plate in the sink
Now he pours one more drink
And the room is as dark as the rum
He sips at his glass
So he won't feel the time pass
'Til all he can feel now is numb

They were no strangers
Nor blind to the dangers
Of romance when things get too rough
Of letting down guards
And exposing your cards
To find out it was better to bluff

When you're feeling world-worn
With most of your hopes gone
Of finding someone who will care
Love's gonna guide you
Been waiting inside you
For you to find out it was there
