Love is funny or it's sad

Or it's quiet or it's mad

It's a good thing or it's bad

But beautiful

 

Beautiful to take a chance and if you fall, you fall

And I'm thinking I wouldn't mind at all

 

Love is tearful or it's gay

It's a problem or it's play

It's a heartache either way

But beautiful

 

And I'm thinking if you were mine, I'd never let you go

And that would be but beautiful, I know.
