Your love is strong and you're so sweet
You make me hard, you make me weak
Love is strong and you're so sweet
And some day, baby, we've got to meet

A glimpse of you was all it took
A stranger's glance, it got me hooked
And I follow you across the stars
I look for you in seedy bars

What are you scared of, baby?
It's more than just a dream
I need some time
We make a beautiful team

Well love is strong and you're so sweet
And some day, baby, we've got to meet
Just anywhere, out in the park
Out on the street, out in the dark

And I follow you through swirling seas
Down darkened woods with silent trees
Your love is strong and you're so sweet
You make me hard, you make me weak

I wait for you until the dawn
My mind is ripped, my heart is torn
Your love is strong and you're so sweet
Your love is bitter taken neat

Yeah, love is strong, yeah
Yeah, all right
Love is strong, yeah
Oh yeah, you're so sweet
Love is strong... we've got to meet
Oh yeah, oh yeah
Love is strong.... oh yeah
