You Love Who You Love,
No one has any say.
And sensible words,
Will not get in my way.
You love who you love,
Good or bad, right or wrong.
The heart will decide,
Where it is you belong.

You love who you love,
We can’t help how we’re made.
A love that seemed sure,
Is a love that can fade.
When you look at him,
You can’t see what I see.
When I look at him,
I can see he loves me.

A soon as our eyes met,
I didn’t think about what’s right.
It was just as if
Someone turned out the light.

(OR: alternate version of middle 8)

Love is like a game of chance,
You place your bets and hope to win.
We all hold our breath,
When the wheel starts to spin.

You Love Who You Love,
I don’t care what he’s done.
He may have a past,
But I know he’s the one.

I won’t ever change,
We’re together for good.
I don’t give a damn what they say.
You love who you love come what may
