Charted: 24 13
  • I started to write this song about you
    And then I decided that I would write it all about love
    And it appeared to me
    That you wasn't happy
    And that's for sure, positively
    That's what the world is made of
    So give me more L-O-V-E, love
    Love is a walk down Main street (oh love)
    Love is an apple that is so sweet (love)
    Love is something that can't be beat (love)

    L-O-V-E is strange to me, Oh
    I can't explain this feeling
    Can't you see that salvation is freeing
    It's all in the heavens, can't you see
    You can always depend on me
    To give you love

    Love is a flower in my soul (oh love)
    Love is a story that just can't be told (love)
    Can't you feel it burning more and more (love)
    Stop and look at the big wheel roll
    I can't explain this feeling
    Can't you see that salvation is freeing
    I would give my life for the glory
    Just to be able to tell the story
    About love
    I didn't mean to make you mad
    A sweet story, I thought I had
    But maybe time will bring us together
    And I can be such a happy fella
    About love
    Love is something that is so divine (oh love)
    Love is a feeling that's a friend of mine (love)
    It can't be measured by no sign (love)
    In your heart or even in your mind
    About love, Love is as bright as the morning sun Writer/s: JONI MITCHELL
