background
"Let There Be Love wears it's heart on its sleeve. A slushy sentiment? Perhaps! But one that John Lennon and many others would surely agree with" - Jim




lyrics
Secrets of lovers,
Whisper tonight.
Broken down angel,
Got lost in the cold daylight.
The city is screaming,
And I look for your eyes.
Someone to lean on through the night,
Your music talks to me and hits me tonight.
One candle burning, I hear your voice say.

So let there be love,
Let there be love.
Love.
Let there be love.

It heals and it hurts,
She leads you to heaven's door,
And leaves you for dirt.
Someone to lean on, that's your own,
Some magic conquers me and lives in my soul,
She comes like an ocean and I hear you sing,
Love will conquer anything.

So let it be love,
Let it be love.
Love.
Let it be love.

The wall's down,
They're coming down.
I can't slow,
I know it now.
So stay now,
Hold on,
And I'm praying.

So let it be love,
Let it be love.
Love.
Let it be love.

I know what I want,
I know what I feel,
I know what I want.

So let there be love.
So let there be love.
Let there be love.
