Love Ain't Just A Word

Album: We the Generation (2015)
  • You say love is just a word
    But I really mean it
    A four letter verb I put in a sentence
    To show my true feelings
    If love's just a word
    Why would it mess with my breathing?
    And just like the air, you can't see it there
    But we know we need it

    Love ain't just a word
    And I really mean it
    A four letter verb I put in a sentence
    To show my true feelings
    If love's just a word
    Why would it mess with my breathing?
    And just like the air, you can't see it there
    But we know we need it

    'Cause love ain't just a word
    Yeah, love ain't just a word
    'Cause love ain't just a word
    Yeah, love ain't just a word
    Love can change the world
    Yeah, love ain't just a word
    'Cause love ain't just a word
    We know we need it
    'Cause love ain't just a word

    It's in your heart, you could feel it there
    It's written in the stars, you could see it there
    But we should make it last 'cause the feeling's rare
    The feeling's rare, yeah
    We could turn it into ours, sing it everywhere
    When loving in the dark you can lay it bare
    When true love is set apart then we know we care, but then

    You say love is just a word
    And I really mean it
    A four letter verb I put in a sentence
    To show my true feelings
    If love's just a word
    Why would it mess with my breathing?
    And just like the air, you can't see it there
    But we know we need it

    'Cause love ain't just a word
    Yeah, love ain't just a word
    'Cause love ain't just a word
    Yeah, love ain't just a word
    Love can change the world
    Yeah, love ain't just a word
    'Cause love ain't just a word
    We know we need it
    'Cause love ain't just a word

    Yeah, Raskit, Rudimental, yo
    Love thy neighbor, love thy raver
    In my deepest darkest times, love my saviour
    Love is braver, love is major
    One day I'd love to meet my maker
    Embrace the love from my creator and be in his favour
    And that'll be later
    'Cause right now I couldn't be greater
    I'm getting this paper, I couldn't be straighter
    And I do not hate or you think I'm a baker?
    They're loving my flavour
    And I love this music industry
    Although I know it couldn't be faker
    I love the haters, I love the takers
    Movers and shakers, the perpetrators, instigators
    The advocaters, the top debaters
    The ones that roll behind your back regurgitating data
    Bunch of vagrants
    Gotta be patient
    I love the blacks, the whites, I love the Asians
    And other persuasions and denominations
    I love the thought of integration, not segregation
    I know that love ain't just a word
    If you would bother to use your imagination (you say love is just a word)

    Love ain't just a word
    Love can change the world
    Love ain't just a word

    But then you say love is just a word
    Yeah, love ain't just a word
    'Cause love ain't just a word
    Yeah, love ain't just a word
    Love can change the world
    Yeah, love ain't just a word
    'Cause love ain't just a word
    We know we need it
