Ariana Grande got her second big song of the night on Hairspray Live! with "Without Love," which she started singing in a rather compromising position -- tied to a bed.

After her boyfriend-to-be Seaweed (Ephraim Sykes) sneaks into her bedroom and unties her, Grande as Penny Pingleton swings the rope around like a lasso and belts the second half of "Without Love" to Skyes. 

Lyrics Edit


Once I was a selfish fool who never understood Never looked inside myself, though on the outside, I looked good! Then we met and you made me the man I am today Tracy, I'm in love with you, no matter what you weigh, 'cause

Without love, life is like the seasons with no summer Without love, life is rock 'n' roll without a drummer Tracy, I'll be yours forever 'cause I never wanna be without love

Tracy, never set me free, no, I ain't lyin' Never set me free, Tracy, no, no, no

[TRACY] Once I was a simple girl, then stardom came to me But I was still a nothing, though a thousand fans may disagree


[TRACY] Fame was just a prison, signing autographs a bore I didn't have a clue 'til you came banging on my door

Now without love, life is like my dad without his bromo Without love, life is making out to Perry Como Darling, I'll be yours forever 'cause I never wanna be without love

So darling, throw away the key, I'm yours forever Throw away the key, yeah, yeah, yeah

[SEAWEED] Living in the ghetto, black is everywhere ya go Who'd've thought I'd love a girl with skin as white as winter's snow?

[PENNY] In my ivory tower, life was just a hostess snack But now I've tasted chocolate and I'm never going back

[PENNY & SEAWEED] 'Cause without love

[SEAWEED] Life is like a beat that you can't follow

[PENNY & SEAWEED] Without love

[PENNY] Life is Doris Day at the Apollo

[PENNY & SEAWEED] Darling, I'll be yours forever 'Cause I never wanna be

[PENNY] Without love

[SEAWEED] So darling, never set me free

[PENNY & SEAWEED] I'm yours forever, never set me free, no, no, no

[LINK] If you're locked up in this prison, Trace, I don't know what I'll do

[TRACY] Link, I've got to break out, so that I can get my hands on you

[SEAWEED] And girl, if I can't touch you now, I'm gonna lose control

[PENNY] Seaweed, you're my black white knight, I've found my blue-eyed soul

[ALL] Sweet freedom is our goal

[LINK] Trace, I wanna kiss ya!

[TRACY] Then I can't wait for parole!

[ENSEMBLE] 'Cause without love

Life is like a prom that won't invite us

'Cause without love

It's like getting my big break and laryngitis

'Cause without love

[PENNY] Life's a '45' when you can't buy it without love

[ENSEMBLE] 'Cause without love

[TRACY] Life is like my mother on a diet!

[ALL] Like a week that's only Mondays Only ice cream, never sundaes Like a circle with no center Like a door marked, 'Do Not Enter'

Darling, I'll be yours forever, 'cause I never wanna be without love

[PENNY] Yes, now you've captured me

[ENSEMBLE] Without love

[TRACY & SEAWEED] I surrender happily

[ENSEMBLE] Without love

[PENNY] Oh Seaweed, never set me free, no, no, no

[TRACY & LINK] No, I ain't lyin'

[PENNY & SEAWEED] Never set me free, no, no, no

[PENNY] No, I don't wanna live without love, love, love

[ALL] Darling, you had best believe me

Never leave me without love
