or
Meat Loaf

The have been many sightings
Of love in truth
The skeptic in me longs for
To see of love some proof
Only for you does this happen
Only for you do I care

Love is not real
Love is a hoax
It's just a dream
I've had so many nights alone
Love is not here
Love is somewhere else
It's somewhere far
No man I've ever known's
Come close

It can be vicious, heartless,
Dire and cruel
In spite of my mind, my heart longs
To find fire and fuel
Only for you does this happen
Only for you do I care

Love is not real
Love is a hoax
It's just a dream
I've had so many nights alone
Love is not here
Love is somewhere else
It's somewhere far
No man I've ever known's
Come close

My girlfriend doesn't want
To know me
And my friends think
I've lost the plot
I have become a liability
I got to do something
But I don't know what
I'm hearing voices
And I can't see straight
I think I might be going insane
Can't make my own decisions
And I just can't wait
To mess it all up again
I never thought that I would succeed
Beyond the wildest dreams
I've ever dreamt
But everything's become so hackneyed
Familiarity only breeds contempt
I'm ruining your life
I'm bored with mine
I'm acting like I couldn't care less
Another bottle and another line
Another stranger to undress

Next time you stab me in the back
You'd better do it to my face
Next time you stab me in the back
You'd better do it to my face
Next time you stab me in the back
You'd better do it to my face
Next time you stab me in the back
You'd better do it to my face

When you forget
What you cannot forgive
The terms are so much easier to come to with
When we look at what
We're going through
And desaturate
Until everything is simple
Love or hate
Love or hate

I have been searching
I have been searching my soul
I've seen the brightest star
I've seen the blackest hole
I've found a way to cope with every twist of fate
Now everything is simple
Love or hate
Love or hate
Next time you stab me in the back
You'd better do it to my face

And when that love comes crawling back to me to say
I've been away
Now please let me stay with the
No way!
Never again will I do this
Never again will I care

Love is not real
Love is a hoax
It's just a dream
I've had so many nights alone
Love is not here
Love is somewhere else
It's just a dream
I've had so many nights alone

Love is not real
Love is a hoax
It's just a dream
I've had so many nights alone
Love is not here
Love is somewhere else
It's somewhere far away
No man I've ever known's come so close
