  • Lyrics: Another day scraping by, she wipes the tears from her eyes She knows what she’s gonna do isn’t right Slips on her high heeled shoes, she’s got one last talent to use To put bread on their table tonight She mumbles a prayer, “God, please watch out for my kids and when they awake, don’t let them know what I did” That’s real love, real love, real love in their lives And real love you can’t buy No more leading her on, his situation prevents him from being the one And she needs a partner in life She deserves so much more, he tells himself as he quietly walks out her door But she’ll never be out of his mind When he leaves her behind, he knows he’ll never again feel the same And he hopes that with time, she won’t remember his name That’s real love, real love, real love in their lives That’s real love, real love, even real love says good bye Sometimes real love makes you cry But that’s real love, and in real life real love means sacrifice Real love doesn’t always work out right But it’s real love, and when you know it’s there, you better take it, shake it with all that you dare That’s real love and it comes with real price That’s real love, real love, real love in our lives That’s real love, real love, and real love is alive
