===========================================


        She says, what do you call love
        well I call it Harry
        Oh, please I'm being serious
        what do you call love

        Well I don't call it family and I don't call it lust
        and as we all know marriage isn't a must
        And I suppose in the end, it's a matter of trust
        if I had to I'd call love time

        She says, what do you call love
        can't you be more specific
        What do you call love
        is it more than the heart's hieroglyphic

        Well for me time has no meaning, no future, no past
        and when you're in love, you don't have to ask
        There's never enough time to hold love in your grasp
        turning time around

        Turning time around
        that is what love is
        Turning time around
        yes, that is what love is

        My time is your time when you're in love
        and time is what you never have enough of
        You can't see or hold it, it's exactly like love

        Turning time around
        turning time around
        Turning time around
        turning time around
        Turning time around
        well I gotta have it
        I gotta-gotta-gotta have it

        Turning, turning time around
        gotta have it, turning time around
        Turning, turning time around
        turning time around

They are the exact words he sings,
not just lyrics I copied from the booklet.



Turning time around
--------------------
She says: what do you call love
Well I call it Harry
Ah please, I'm being serious
What do you call love
Well I don't call it family
And I don't call it lust
And as we all know, marriage isn't a must
And I suppose in the end it's a matter of trust
If I had to I'd call love time
She said: what do you call love
Can't you be more specific
What do you call love
Is it more than the hearts hieroglyphic
Well for me time has no meaning
No future, no past
And when you're in love, you don't have to ask
There's never enough time to hold love in your grasp
Turning time around
Turning time around
That's what love is
Turning time around
Yes, that's what love is
My time is your time
When you're in love
And time is what you never have enough of
You can't see or hold it
It's exactly like love
Turning time around
Turning time around
Turning time around
Turning time around
Turning time around

Well I gotta have it
I gotta gotta gotta have it
Turning time around
Well I gotta have it
Turning time around
Turning, turning time around
Turning time around
