  • I once held him in my arms
    And he said he'd always stay
    But I was cruel, I treated him like a fool
    And I threw it all away

    I once had mountains in the palm of my hand
    Rivers that ran through every day
    But I must have been mad, never knew what I had
    'Til I threw it all away

    Love is all it is, it makes the world go round
    Love and only love, it can't be denied
    No matter what you think about it
    You won't be able to do without it
    Take a tip from one who's tried

    So if you find someone who gives you all his love
    Take it to your heart, don't let it stray
    One thing is certain, you'll surely be hurting
    If you throw it all away
    If you throw it all away

    Love is all it is, it makes the world go round
    Love and only love can't be denied
    And no matter what you think about it
    You won't be able to do without it
    Take a tip from one who's tried

    So if you find someone to give you all of his love
    Take it to your heart, don't let it stray
    One thing is certain, you'll surely be hurting
    If you throw it all away
    If you throw it all away, yeah
