Wonder Of Love
written by John Hiatt

Other half of last nightís cigar
A couple of Pop Tarts
Cold cup of coffee
Thereís a fine new start
Iím gonna find you
If it breaks my heart
Tail wind and God willing

I donít even know anymore
If anythingís true
Donít even know what love can do
I still wonder though
If love can pull us thru
All this time we been killiní

Itís a wonder of love
Keeps me up above ground
The wonder of love
Keeps me looking all around
The wonder of love
Doesnít know when itís down
Thatís the wonder of love

Iím not even gonna ask you
Where you been
Iím afraid if I go with you
Wonít come back again
What would we be leaving
This breakfast of champions
Sometimes I just canít get goiní

Iíve been looking for you all these years
Sittiní across this kitchen table here
You pass the sugar and suddenly it all comes clear
Itís the wonder of love thatís showiní

Itís a wonder of love
Keeps my shirt on straight
Itís a wonder I can even concentrate
I wonder why I always have to wait
Thatís the wonder of love

I got down on my knees last night
And I thanked someone
For the chance for two people
To try and live together and not run
I lost ya that night
You were gone in the next dayís sun
Thatís the wonder of love
