Teach You - Lyrics

Do I have to explain how to care for somebody you love?
Call them up on the phone when they're feeling blue
Light up with the words they say to you
Do I have to explain how to care for somebody you trust?
Make them feel like there's no one else around
Pick up when you think they're going down
Do I have to teach you?

How to show me when times are bad
How to ask about the day I had and make it alright
How to listen when we're all alone
How to put away a telephone and look into my eyes

It's never too late to learn the way

Do I have to explain how to care for somebody you love?
Call them up on the phone when they're feeling blue
Light up with the words they say to you
Do I have to explain how to care for somebody you trust?
Make them feel like there's no one else around
Pick up when you think they're going down
Do I have to teach you?

How to trust me when I'm on my own
How to treat me when I get back home
And make up when we fight
How to take me out and have some fun
Hold my hand in front of everyone
And love me through the light

It's never too late to learn the way

Do I have to explain how to care for somebody you love?
Call them up on the phone when they're feeling blue
Light up with the words they say to you
Do I have to explain how to care for somebody you trust?
Make them feel like there's no one else around
Pick up when you think they're going down
Do I have to teach you?

(Oh, ooh-ooh ah)
(Oh, ooh-ohh ah)
(Ooh, yeah)
Do I have to teach you?
(Oh, ooh-ohh ah)
(Ooh, yeah)
