I Want To Know What Love Is by Foreigner

I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I'm older

Now this mountain I must climb
Feels like a world upon my shoulders
I through the clouds I see love shine
It keeps me warm as life grows colder

In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
Can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I'm gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me
I've got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me

In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
I can't stop now, I've traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
And I wanna feel, I want to feel what love is
And I know, I know you can show me

Let's talk about love
I wanna know what love is, the love that you feel inside
I want you to show me, and I'm feeling so much love
I wanna feel what love is, no, you just cannot hide
I know you can show me, yeah

I wanna know what love is, let's talk about love
I want you to show me, I wanna feel it too
I wanna feel what love is, I want to feel it too
And I know and I know, I know you can show me
Show me love is real, yeah
I wanna know what love is...

I FORGOT THIS SONG EVEN EXISTED EVEN THOUGH IT PLAYED ON THE RADIO ABOUT A THOUSAND TIMES A DAY WHEN I WAS IN JUNIOR HIGH

Wow. I never saw the video to this song. White guy puts out flyers for working class negros to come to his studio to record song, to help him get laid. And all he had to do to get them to come was show them a super cool, jive ass handshake. Now THAT IS LOVE! I loved this song growing up. In fact, I loved many songs by Foreigner. My brothers had the album on in the house everyday for a good stretch of time. It's a good song. But the video does not at all do the song justice. Whoever directed it should have been fired the second they were hired. Also, if you are looking for someone to show you what love is you will never find it. To experience real love all you need to do is let it shine through. But whatever

I remember this video, and even as a kid I was like 'wow this is a bit cheesy'

Cool song, a real hokey video

The first time I saw Foreigner in a video, they were not what I expected

Not that there's anything wrong with them, they just don't look like they sound

My sister had their album with the big 4 on it

The one that had Juke Box Hero and Urgent

I loved the song Urgent

Yeah and as far as wanting to know what love is

i get it, he's been hurt and wants to know if it's worth it to love again

Love is a powerful feeling, starts with a look in the eye...

Uh I think this song is about a dude confusing getting laid with love. Little known fact... the lyrics used to be "I want to know what love is, I want you to show me, I want to know what love is, I want you to blow me." But the dudes band mates talked him out of it.

I used to love this song... but now that our king has decreed that foreigners are dangerous and not to be trusted I guess I cant like the song any more.
