Verse

I lost my heart

When you left me

Though I continued to live on

For a heart

I had no need


Verse

I lost my home

When you were gone

There was no where that gave me ease

For our place was

So full of memories


Bridge

It's so cold

Lying here all on my own

Wasn't born to be solo

No


Chorus

I was born

To be in love

Because I'm a woman

Who knows how to love

BORN 2 LOVE

Verse

I found myself

When I was left

Cause self is all I have now

Know that I'll learn to get by

And be strong

And carry on


Bridge

But it's so cold

Lying here all on my own

Wasn't born to be solo


Chorus

I was born

To be in love

Because I'm a woman

Who knows how to love


Chorus

I was born

To be in love

Because I'm a woman

Who knows how to love


Outro

I was born

To love
