Lyrics

Love is What We Need

Written By: Christine Donovan

Have you ever felt forgotten?
In a world of constant strain?
That you've got something in common
With a dog left out in the rain?
I Never got sent flowers
I Never got any awards
Watch the TV there for hours
Played guitar and wrote down these words....

Love is what we need
Love is what we need

So I walked along the sidewalk
Saw a man without a home
Saw the way that his eyes told me
That he felt so alone
So I gave the man a some dollars
Just so he could buy some bread
Stopped a while just to talk to him
This is what he said....

Love is what we need
Love is what we need

Went into a church to pray
A couple temples too
Now I dont care about religion
I'm just looking for the light and the truth
Saw a mother as I was leavin
She lived in her car with all her kids
She saw me standin; there watchin her
Then she told me this...

Love is what we need
Love is what we need
Love is what we need
Love is what we need

Love....
is what
We need.
