  • Love is real, real is love
    Love is feeling, feeling love
    Love is wanting to be loved

    Love is touch, touch is love
    Love is reaching, reaching love
    Love is asking to be loved

    Love is you
    You and me
    Love is knowing
    We can be

    Love is free, free is love
    Love is living, living love
    Love is needing to be loved Writer/s: John Lennon

  • AnonymousSad, beautiful, moving, emotional, tragic, lovely, tearful, anger, deep, light, light & bright, dark & grey, happy, everything that John Lennon brought to this world & left it much too soon. He deserved more, & we needed more of him..
  • Rick Margin from Brick,njLennon recorded this with Phil Spector playing the piano. The song was originally composed as a simple acoustic vibe,but morphed into a more piano-driven track in the studio. On Take 12, Lennon asked Spector to accompany him on the piano (while John continued to play the acoustic). It was completed on Take 25.
  • Andy from Stockport, United KingdomLove is.....and should be as simple as this song but unfortunately isn't...sadly
  • Reed from New Ulm, MnThe sweet simplicity of it all. what a beautiful song.
  • Nady from Adelaide, Australia"Love is wanting...to be loved." *tear*
  • Eric from , NjThis song is phenomonal
  • Patrickman from Makati City, Other^Phil Spector was the one playing the piano. John was playing the guitar and doing the vocals.
  • Bianca Sanchez from Alburquerque, NmI Love this song. it's amazing. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • John Grigaitis Iv from St. Louis, MoI can play this on the piano Sarah, it's not too hard. in the key of A.
  • Malicious Matt from SquatneyJust another honest John Lennon song. I recall a night where I was in a (lets call it "chemically enhanced") love buzz and I felt that this song was where its at!
  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdKenny Loggins did a beautiful cover of this on his popular "Return to Pooh Corner" CD. Did Lennon write this for one of of his kids.
    Famed jazz pianist David Benoit appears on the Loggins version.
  • Sarah from Kennewick, WaDoes anyone here know how to play this on the piano?
