02. You Don't Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You're Told)

In some respects

I suspect you've got

A respectable side.


When pushed and pulled

And pressured,

You seldom run and hide.


But it's for someone else's benefit

Not for what you want to do.

And until I realize that you've realized

I'm gonna say these words to you:


You don't know what love is

You just do as you're told.

Just as a child of ten might act

But you're far too old.

You're not hopeless,


Or helpless

And I hate to sound cold...

But you don't know what love is

You just do as you're told.


I can see your man can't help but win

Any problems that may arise.

But in his mind there can be no sin

If you never criticize.

You just keep on repeating all those

Empty "I love you"'s.

Until you see that you deserve better

I'm gonna lay right into you.


You don't know what love is

You do as you're told.

Just as a child of ten might act

But you're far too old.

You're not hopeless,

Or helpless.

And I hate to sound cold.


But you don't know what love is

No you don't know what love is

No you don't know what love is...


You just do as you're told

Yeah,

You do as you're told
