The Answer Is Love

 

 
“Love is life.
All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love.
Everything is, everything exists, only because I love.
Everything is united by it alone.
Love is God, and to die means that I, a particle of love,
shall return to the general and eternal source”
-Leo Tolstoy
 

Am I a fool for loving you?
is what I want so hard to do?

My compass leads me to your heart,
defies the miles that we’re apart

The phone calls make it all so real,
and help to fill that void I feel

But there you are and here I am
and there’s our love, this hologram.

Love has no rules,
none of us have the map,
a minefield for fools,
such a sweet and tender trap,

But when the odds are stacked against you,

you think, you feel you just can’t win,
no matter how you frame the question,
you’ll find the answers within.

The answer is love,
love is always the answer,
the answer is love,
love is always the key,
the answer is love,
love is always the answer
the answer for you,
the answer for me.

So give me reasons to believe,
in this love we both conceive

The thought of us just feels so right,
brings tender dreams into my night

Faith take my hand and lead the way,
and hold my heart throughout the day

And I’ll just keep on loving you
it’s what my heart tells me to do

The answer is love,
love is always the answer
the answer is love,
love is always the key
the answer is love,
love is always the answer
the answer for you,
the answer for me
the answer is you,
the answer is me.
