The Love Potion

(Elixir d'Amour)


The one and only potion for finding love


A true love potion consists of one and only one ingredient.

There is no running around calling out: "Love me! Please, love me!"
There is no trying to get somebody to love us.
Not one single thing to get somebody to love us goes
in a true love potion.
Because not one of the million different tricks and manipulations
used to get somebody to love us really works.

The only thing that works is L O V E.

Walk around, look around
For somebody you can love and love that somebody.
The Love in your heart wasn't put there to stay,
Love isn't love, till you give it away.
Give it away
and LOVE is yours.


C'est l'Amour / It is Love


It is Love that causes us to love
It is Love that creates dreams
It is Love that wants us to love each other
It is Love that makes tears fall

But those who think they love each other
Those who pretend they love
Yes, all those who think they love each other
They can never weep

In Love, there must be tears
In Love, there must be giving

And those who have no tears
Can never love
There must be many and many tears
to have a right to Love

My Love, how I love you
So often, you make me weep

I gave you my tears
I wept to love you more
I paid with many tears
To have, forever, the right to Love
To have, forever, the right to Love...
