  • You say you want to seek the truth, but it's hard to find
    No one to help you, your friends don't have the time
    So you ride around in your car, switch on the radio
    You want to relate to something you once read in a book
    What kind of a way to try to take a look

    Until I got hurt I was looking, I was on my way
    Until I got hurt, until I got hurt, darling I painted my face grey
    Until I got hurt, 'til I got hurt, why didn't I
    I didn't think of this until I got hurt
    'Till I got hurt, baby, I didn't know what love is

    You say you want to learn to laugh 'cause music makes you cry
    But the tears you shed are only in your eye
    So you turn to any phony mouth with a tale to tell
    But he's just a hoaxer don't you know, selling peace and religion
    Between his jokes and his karma chewing gum

    Until I got hurt, I was looking, I was the same as you
    Until I got hurt, until I got hurt, I did not know what to do
    Until I got hurt, 'till I got hurt, why didn't [
    I didn't think of this until I got hurt
    'Till I got hurt, baby, I didn't know what love is

    Young son, don't let me down, young son
    I'm trusting you to keep on, never turn away now
    Hold on, never let go, now hold on
    Turn your heart to the bright sun
    Love will come your way
    Cause 'till you make that final show
    You'll never know what love you've been missing
    Missing

    You say you want to seek the truth but you work alone
    No one to help you and nobody to push you on
    So you sit at home drinking your wine, television on
    You wait for a miracle, 'cause you say one day one'll come along
    ( But wishful thinking, boy) any minute now ! You might be gone
    I'd like to help you brother but that would be wrong

    Until I got hurt, I was looking, I was on my way
    Until I got hurt, until I got hurt, darling I didn't know which way
    Until I got hurt, 'till I got hurt, why didn't I
    I didn't think of this until I got hurt
    'Till I got hurt, baby, I didn't know what love is

    Until I got hurt, oh I didn't know what love is Lyrics © BMG RIGHTS MANAGEMENT US, LLC
