Love: The Real Thing

October 27, 2011
Watch and learn from Jake Smith, sundry musician and thought-provoking lyricist, in his song Real Love:
 
I am sick of all these conversations
Got me got me got me going crazy
Can you feel the drama building
As my voice lingers on?
Don’t tell me that he needs you
When he doesn’t even see you
For who you are
 
(Chorus:)
Everybody’s got a reason to love
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Everybody’s got a reason to
Here it is…
 
He took a walk with weight on his shoulder
It was down a crowded street
Changing history
He gave a dying world a chance (the wages of sin is death)
Yeah it was his time, but he had you in mind
 
This is real love
But something’s got to give
When you’re trying your best
Not to feel love
But I feel it but I feel it
 
(Chorus:)
Everybody’s got a reason to love
Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Everybody’s got a reason to
Here it is…
 
(Bridge:)
It’s a patient kind of love
Never boasting love
Jealous of nothing love
An unfailing love
Prophecy will fade
Knowledge goes away
Only the perfect things out last what life may bring
So you got to know
So you got to show
This love
This love
Cause this is love
 
“This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” (1 John 4:10) He took a walk with weight on his shoulder/ It was down a crowded stret/ Changing history/ He gave a dying world a chance/ Yeah it was his time, but he had you in mind.
 
The bridge of this song is a paraphrase of the beautiful passage on love in 1 Corinthians. For more on this definition of love, read L.O.V.E.
