  • Love is born with lightning bolts
    Electro-magnetic force
    Burning skin and fireworks
    A storm on a raging course

    Like a force of nature,
    Love can fade with the stars at dawn
    Sometimes it takes all your strength
    Just to keep holding on
    At the speed of love
    A radiance that travels
    At the speed of love
    My heart goes out to you

    Love is born with solar flares
    From two magnetic poles
    It moves towards a higher plane
    Where two halves make two wholes

    Like a force of nature,
    Love shines in many forms
    One night we are bathed in light
    One day carried away in the storms
    At the speed of love
    Nothing changes faster
    Than the speed of love
    My heart goes out to you

    We don't have to talk
    We don't even have to touch
    I can feel your presence
    In the silence that we share
    Got to keep moving
    At the speed of love
    Nothing changes faster
    Than the speed of love
    Got to keep on shining
    At the speed of love
    Nothing changes faster
    Than the speed of love
    My heart goes out to you

  • John from Asheville, NcThis song would've fit nicely on Presto, being a mid-tempo tune...(like much of their material in the late 80s, early 90s). I like it quite well. It's not an album highlight, but there's nothing wrong here. I love where Peart is going on this record lyrically...his focus on love and relationships.
