Love Is a Four-Letter Word

Seems like only yesterday
I left my mind behind
Down in the Gypsy Cafe
With a friend of a friend of mine
She sat with a baby heavy on her knee
Yet spoke of life most free from slavery
With eyes that showed no trace of misery
A phrase in connection first with she I heard
That love is just a four-letter word

Outside a rambling store-front window
Cats meowed to the break of day
Me, I kept my mouth shut, too
To you I had no words to say
My experience was limited and underfed
You were talking while I hid
To the one who was the father of your kid
You probably didn't think I did, but I heard
You say that love is just a four-letter word

I said goodbye unnoticed
Pushed towards things in my own games
Drifting in and out of lifetimes
Unmentionable by name
Searching for my double, looking for
Complete evaporation to the core
Though I tried and failed at finding any door
I must have thought that there was nothing more
Absurd than that love is just a four-letter word

Though I never knew just what you meant
When you were speaking to your man
I can only think in terms of me
And now I understand
After waking enough times to think I see
The Holy Kiss that's supposed to last eternity
Blow up in smoke, its destiny
Falls on strangers, travels free
Yes, I know now, traps are only set by me
And I do not really need to be
Assured that love is just a four-letter word

Strange it is to be beside you, many years the tables turned
You'd probably not believe me if told you all I've learned
And it is very very weird, indeed
To hear words like "forever" plead
so ships run through my mind I cannot cheat
it's like looking in a teacher's face complete
I can say nothing to you but repeat what I heard
That love is just a four-letter word

Amor É Uma Palavra de Quatro Letras

Parece que foi ontem
Deixei minha mente por trás
No Gypsy Cafe
Com um amigo de um amigo meu
Ela sentou-se com um bebê pesado no joelho
Ainda falou de vida mais livre da escravidão
Com olhos que não mostrou nenhum traço de miséria
A frase em primeira conexão com ela, ouvi
Que o amor é apenas uma palavra de quatro letras

Fora de uma janela fachada
Gatos miou ao romper do dia
Eu, eu mantive minha boca fechada, também
Para você eu não tinha palavras para dizer
Minha experiência foi limitada e subnutridas
Você estava falando enquanto eu escondi
Para aquele que foi o pai de seu filho
Você provavelmente acha que eu não ouvi mas ouvi
Você disse que o amor é apenas uma palavra de quatro letras

Eu disse adeus despercebido
Empurrado para as coisas na minha próprios jogos
Entrando e saindo de vidas
Inconfessáveis ??pelo nome
Busca de meu duplo, procurando
Evaporação completa para o núcleo
Embora eu tentaram e falharam em encontrar qualquer porta
Devo ter pensado que não havia mais nada
Absurdo do que esse amor é apenas uma palavra de quatro letras

Embora eu nunca soube exatamente o que você quis dizer
Quando você estava falando com o seu homem
Só posso pensar em termos de mim
E agora eu entendo
Depois de acordar vezes o suficiente para pensar que eu vejo
O beijo Santo que é suposto para a eternidade passada
Explodir em fumaça, seu destino
Recai sobre estrangeiros, viaja livre
Sim, eu sei agora, as armadilhas são apenas um conjunto por mim
E eu realmente não precisam ser
Assegurou que o amor é apenas uma palavra de quatro letras

É estranho estar ao seu lado, durante muitos anos as mesas viradas
Você provavelmente não acreditaria em mim se disse tudo que eu aprendi
E é muito, muito estranho, na verdade
Para ouvir palavras como "sempre" pleitear
Para navios atravessam minha mente eu não posso enganar
É como olhar na cara completa de um professor
Eu posso dizer nada a você, mas vou repetir o que ouvi
Que o amor é apenas uma palavra de quatro letras
