What About Love?
[Celie]
Is that me who's floating away
Lifted up to the clouds by a kiss
Never felt nothing like this

[Shug]
Is that me I don't recognise
'Cause the one thing I knew all about
I had it all figured out

[Celie] / [Shug]
But what about trust? / (What about trust?)
What about tenderness? / (Tenderness)

[Both]
What about tears when I'm happy?
What about wings when I fall?
I want you to be a story for me that I can believe in
Forever

[Celie] / [Shug]
So what about– / (What about–)

[Both]
Love

Will you be my light in the storm
Will I see a new world in your eyes
With you my whole spirit rise

[Celie] / [Shug]
And what about hope? / (What about hope?)
What about joy? / (What about joy?)

[Both]
What about tears when I'm happy?
What about wings when I fall?
I want you to be a story for me that I can believe in
Forever
[Shug] / [Celie]
And what about– / (What about–)
What about– / (What about)

[Both]
Love

[Celie]
What about–

[Shug] / [Celie]
And what about– / (What about–)
What about– / (What about)

[Both]
Love
You and me

[Shug] / [Celie]
You and me / (You and me)
Oh, now / (Sing to me)

[Both]
What about–

[Shug] / [Celie]
And what about– / (What about–)
[Both]
