Love
Love will come find you
Just to remind you
Of who you are

Oh love
It will forsake you
Threaten to break you
Take what you got

Everybody laughs
Everybody cries
Sure it could hurt you baby
But give it a little try
See that's the thing about love

Friends
Sometimes will blind you
Sneak up behind you
You cant give enough

Then life
It will embrace you
Totally amaze you
So you don't give up

Everybody laughs
Everybody cries
Sure it could hurt you baby

But give it a little try
See that's the thing about love

Don't tell me that I'm not the only that's going through it all
Oh sometimes I feel like I'm the only that's going through it all
But its time
Oh its time
For me to shine
Hey
Its my time
Oh its time
For me to shine

Its my time
Said its my time
For me to shine
Its my time
Its bout time
For me to shine

Everybody laughs
Everybody cries
Sure it could hurt u baby
But give it a little try
That's the thing about love
That's the thing about love
That's the thing about
That's the thing about love

Song facts

Alicia : "This was the first song that Linda Perry and I worked on together. It really amazed me how fluid the process was because it's often difficult for me to collaborate with people that I haven't known for years. But she made it extremely comfortable and easy and inspiring. At that time, she really showed me how to express my true inner voice with no hesitation. And so this song that really describes every side of love in every way, that effects everyone in the world was such a release for me. And also, it was a statement in bravery. I always wanted to do part of a song that the tempo totally changed and this song gave me my chance. And it is my favorite part of the song."
