Lyrics for Song: This Is Love
Lyrics for Album: Triple Feature [2010]

If you ever need to hear a voice in the middle of the night

When it seems so black outside that you can't remember light

Ever shone on you or the ones you love in this or another lifetime

And the voice you need to hear is the true and the trusted kind

With a soft familiar rhythm in these swirling unsure times

When the waves are lapping in and you're not sure you can swim

Well, here's the lifeline

If you ever need to feel a hand take up your own

When you least expect but want it more than you've ever known

Baby here's that hand and baby here's my voice that's calling

This is love

All it ever was and will be

This is love

If you ever need some proof that time can heal your wounds

Just step inside my heart and walk around these rooms

Where the shadows used to be

You can feel as well as see how peace can hover

Now time's been here to fix what's broken with its power

The love that smashed us both to bits, spent its last few hours

Calling out your name, I thought this is the kind of pain

From which we don't recover

But I'm standing here now with my heart held out to you

You would've thought a miracle was all that got us through

Well baby, all I know, all I know is I'm still standing

And this is love

All it ever was and will be

This is love

Standin' up for you baby, standin' up for me

And I see you still and there's this catch in my throat

And I just swallow hard till it leaves me

There's nothing in this world that can change what we know

Still I know I am here if you ever need me

And this is love

And if you ever think of me let it be around twilight

When the world has settled down

And the last round of sunlight is waning in the sky

As you sit and watch the night descending

A car will pass out front with lovers at the wheel

A dog will bark out back

And children's voices peal over and under the air

You've been there lost in the remembering

If you ever wish for things that are only in the past

Just remember that the wrong things aren't supposed to last

Babe, it's over and done and the rest is gonna come when you let it

And this is love

All that it ever was and will be

This is love, when you let it babe, if you let it now

This is love

All it ever was and can be

This is love
