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...
