Truth About Love

We speak about love as elusive

a transient deal that’s exclusive

My lover, my mother, my sister, my brother

They’ve got the licence to use it

And I’ll love you back it’s a contract

There’s terms and conditions or I'll retract

And you walk out the door there’s LOVE no more

Love is measured, we’re keeping scores

Sabotaged by emotion

this constructed and bankrupt notion

leaves us giddy and obsessed, empty and distressed

IN THE NAME OF LOVE?

Feeling less and needing more

Keeping us from our core

Uh ah

So what’s the truth ?

 

…………………………………………….

 

Love is an action

Love is a movement

It's in your words, your walk, your talk

Love is real

Love is true

Wont make me less or bigger than you

Love is surrender has no agenda

Doesn’t play ball with your culture your gender

Doesn’t oscillate or discriminate

Decide you don’t fit and shut the gate.

Love is steady love is sure

It’s not a rollercoaster or a swinging door

Love is always inviting you to be more

Love’s in the detail

Love’s in the care

Love’s in the way that I brush my hair

Love is power

Love is grace

Love is alive when you look in my face

Simplicity

Love is space

Love expands as we co-create

In work and play and a nod your way

Every moment we can choose love.

We can move in love

We can speak with love

Make our bed and drink our tea in love

We’re writing this song and playing the keys in love

Love begins in you, and me
