Only Love

Oh the snow came down on this icy day

And the wind it froze the trees

The children ran everywhere

Shouting out their glee

But my heart felt heavy like the sky above

And the stormy seas below

In this life, it’s only love

That keeps us from the cold


We hurt each other so carelessly

Never know the damage done

Some hide it well, some not at all

Who will be the lucky ones?

The children they are our angels

Through them the truth it will be told

In this life, it’s only love

That keeps us from the cold


A young man sat before me

Told me stories of his life

Not matter how bright he shone

He could not get it right

Nearly gave up on his dreams

But he held onto his soul

In this life, it’s only love

That keeps us from the cold


In this life, it’s only love

That keeps us, that keeps us 

From the cold, 

From the cold
