You Don’t Know What Love Is (you just do as you’re told) Lyrics- white stripes

This one is for you – you know who you are

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 elses benefit
Not for what you wanna do
Until I realize that you’ve realized
I’m gonna say these words to you

You don’t know what love is
You do as you’re told
Just as a child at 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
Cant 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 say you deserve better
I’m gonna lay right into 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
Your 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
You do as you’re told
Yeah

  1. does anybody ever know what LOVE is?
    everybody is motioning at the spur-of-the-moment and love-wise anyway the wind blows
    the interest infatuation of the LA moment is pretty much defining LOVE at best
    are there values, virtues, morals, ethics, depth to romance ? the ability to see one’s soul ?
    or LOVE is just a mutual chemistry, a sexual physical attraction at best and that’s it !!!
    no wonder all this divorce and breakups and hurt and misery
    does anybody ever know what LOVE is ?
    (personally I have defined my very own parameters and domains of LOVE and I exist oscillating in between those, feeling kindda cozy and warm, a love with integrity and without crawling foolishly…)
