What Love Can Do
written by John Hiatt

We were always happiest when we needed the least
Who knew this love would turn in to such a feast
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and a midnight snack
I’m full to the brim, but I keep comin’ back
You take your tiara babe, I’ll take my crown
Come on honey, let’s go downtown
Trade ‘em in on pauper’s rags and some worn out shoes
Count on the kindness of strangers,
That’s what love can do

That’s what love can do
Make you feel brand new
That’s what love can do
Lose someone you thought was you
That’s what love can do
Fire your heart and burn clean through
That’s what love can do

It’s like we’ve laid in this river bed for a couple o’ million years
Shaped by the waters ‘till we’ve nearly disappeared
Two little grains of sand locked in the eternal kiss
Don’t wake me up now, there’s somethin’ that I might miss

That’s what love can do
Make you feel brand new
That’s what love can do
Lose someone you thought was you
That’s what love can do
Fire your heart and burn clean through
That’s what love can do

You dream a dream then the dream comes true
Can you imagine what love can do?
You’re alone in the coffee shop and then she’s by your side
Love picks up the tab and you’re both having pie

That’s what love can do
Make you feel brand new
That’s what love can do
Lose someone you thought was you
That’s what love can do
Fire your heart and burn clean through
That’s what love can do

That’s what love can do
Make you feel brand new
That’s what love can do
Lose someone you thought was you
That’s what love can do
Fire your heart and burn clean through
That’s what love can do
