This Is Love

If you ever need to hear a voice In the middle of the night When it seems so black outside That you can't remember light Ever shone on you or the ones you love In this or another lifetime And the voice you need to hear Is the true and the trusted kind With a soft, familiar rhythm In these swirling, unsure times When the waves are lapping in And you're not sure you can swim Well, here's the lifeline If you ever need to feel a hand Take up your own When you least expect But want it more than you've ever known Baby, here's that hand And, baby, here's my voice that's calling This is love, all it ever was and will be This is love And if you ever need some proof That time can heal your wounds Just step inside my heart And walk around these rooms Where the shadows used to be You can feel as well as see How peace con hover Now time's been here to fix What's broken with its power The love that smashed us both to bits Spent its last few hours Calling out your name I thought this is the kind of pain From which we don't recover But I'm standing here now With my heart held out to you You would've thought a miracle Was all that got us through Well, baby, all I know All I know is I'm still standing And this is love, all it ever was and will be This is love And I see you still And there's this catch in my throat And I just swallow hard till it leaves me There's nothing in this world That can change what we know Still I know I am here if you ever need me And this is love And if you ever think of me Let it be around twilight When the world has settled down And the last round of sunlight Is waning in the sky As you sit and watch the night descending A car will pass out front With lovers at the wheel A dog will bark out back Ad children's voices peal Over and under the air You've been there lost in the remembering And if you ever wish for things That are only in the past Just remember that the wrong things Aren't supposed to last Babe, it's over and done And the rest is gonna come when you let it And this is love, all that it ever was and will be This is love, when you let it, if you let it now This is love, all it ever was and can be This is love
