Tell me what love is, what can it be What is this yearning burning me? Can I survive it, will I endure? This is my sickness, is there a cure? First his obsession seizing my brain, Starting in passion, ending in pain. I start to shiver, then I'm on fire, Then I'm aquiver with seething desire. Who knows the secret, who holds the key? I long for something - what can it be? My brain is reeling, I wonder why; And then the feeling I'm going to die. By day it haunts me, haunts me by night. This tender torment, tinged with delight! Tell me wht love is, what can it be? What is this yearning, burning in me? What is this yearning, burning in me? What is this yearning, burning in me?
