She asked him for forever
And a promise that would last
He said, "Babe you know I love you
But I can't commit to that"
She said, "Love isn't love
'Till you give it away"

A father lived in silence
Saw his son become a man
There was a distance felt between them
Cause he could not understand
That love isn't love
'Till you give it away
You gotta give it away

[Chorus]
As we live
Moving side by side
May we learn to give
Learn to sacrifice

We can entertain compassion
For a world in need of care
But the road of good intentions
Doesn't lead to anywhere
Cause love isn't love
'Till you give it away
You gotta give it away

[Chorus]

Love is like a river
Flowing down from the giver of life
We drink from the water
And our thirst is no longer denied
You gotta give it away

[Chorus]

There was a man who walked on water
He came to set the people free
He was the ultimate example
Of what love can truly be
Cause his love was his life
And he gave it away
You gotta give it away

[Chorus]
