What Is Love - Janelle Monáe



The Experience: What good is the party if you're not around? Love is more than a feeling, more than a beating heart. But what exactly is it...

Music Video: Still waiting for the music video and for Rio 2.

The Meaning of What Is Love: Janelle goes back and forth between the feelings (love), and the person she's in love with (your love). Love isn't real, or worth it, unless it's your loveThat's the only type of love that's worth more than the party. The only type of love that makes you complete - sanity - instead of breaking your world apart. In true love, the words to the song are "You".

Ask Yourself: Do you measure your relationships by what you feel (love), or by how much you give (your love)?


LYRICS:



What is love
If it's not with you
I know when you're alone you feel it too
In your arms is where I long to be
Cause being with you gives me sanity

Oh oh 

Listen to me darling
I wake up every morning
Thinking 'bout the way you feel
Oh oh
I wonder if you know it
And what good is the party
If you're not around
Listen to me now

What good is love

(It's so crazy love)
If it's not your love
What good is love
(It's amazing love)
If it's not your love
What good is love
(It's a baby love)
If it's not your love

What's a song

If you can't hear it too?
Can't imagine dancin' without you
A shooting star ain't really nothin' to see
If you're not right there standing next to me

Oh oh

Listen to me darling
I wake up every morning
Thinking 'bout the way you feel
Oh oh
I wonder if you know it
And what good is the party
If you're not around
Listen to me now

What good is love
(It's so crazy love)
If it's not your love
What good is love
(It's amazing love)
If it's not your love
What good is love
(It's a baby love)
If it's not your love

What is love

If it's not with you
I know when you're alone you feel it too
In your arms is where I long to be
Cause being with you gives me sanity

Oh oh

Listen to me darling
I wake up every morning
Thinking 'bout the way you feel
Oh oh
I wonder if you know it
What good is the party
If you're not around
Listen to me now

What good is love

(It's so crazy love)
If it's not your love
What good is love
(It's amazing love)
If it's not your love
What good is love
(It's a baby love)
If it's not your love

What's the song?

What's the words?
In this love with you
Yet it's not with you
If you can't hear it too
I know when you're alone you got feel it too

Oh!

Yeah!
Oh yeah!
What is love?
Listen to me darlin'
What is love?
If it's not with you?
