To live for today and to love for tomorrow
is the wisdom of a fool,
because tomorrow is promised to no-one
You see, love is that wonderful thing
that the whole wide world needs plenty of
And if you think for one minute
that you can live without it,
then you're foooling yourself
Listen please, I'd like to tell you something
that happened to me just the other day.
I awakened this morning, I was filled with despair
All my dreams turned to ashes, now they're gone
As I looked at my life, it was barren and bare
Without love, I've had nothing at all.
Without love, I've had nothing
Without love I've had nothing at all
I have conquered the world
All but one thing did I have
Without love I've had nothing at all.
Once I had a sweetheart who loved only me
There was nothing, oh, that she would not give, oh no
But I was blind to her goodness and I could not see
that a heart without love cannot live.
Without love, I've had nothing at all!
