Hook:
We hear a lot about what love is/
You donít hear too much about what it does though/
Love gives and looks out for the next person/
And gives out your best even when they deserve your worst and/
Some have a little/
Some have a lot/
Itís not about how much you got/
The point of the plot is if you have any love at all/
You need to share that with the have-nots

Verse 1
Too many people know about hurts/
And spend their lives liviní on the outskirts/
Some without work/
Some without a decent pair of pants and a shirt/
Others just on a search for purpose/
It ainít strange for pity to meet/
Kids that grow up in the city streets/
That go to bed hungry/
Three or four nights out of the week/
And not because they donít like to eat/
The price of life is not cheap/
But it feels free for some/
But someoneís gotta pay for the freedoms we enjoy/
You see the military convoys we employ/
Both on foreign lands and on American soil/
Some serve out of duty/
Some live out and truly embody this thing thatís called love/
Love is unforced and it runs its course/
Despite the cost and it never comes up short

Hook:

Verse 2
They told the man who only owns a few scraps/
To pull himself up by his own boot straps/
Now he canít even find two boots that match/
So tell me how heís supposed to do that? (No love)/
They told the boy with his clothes all torn/
Early one morní to stay well and be warm/
Ok, they didnít ignoreím/
But was it that they couldnít or that they wouldnít do a little more for him?/
The father of the family of five/
Heís juggliní jobs, struggling to keep his family alive/
Tryiní to hold on to his family ties/
Needs to be lovingly nudged to bring his whole family to God/
Itís not all sob stories/
Thereís a lot of activity that could bring God the Glory/
Often donations are made/
Or time is spent with orphans or with patients with AIDS/
This is love in action/
Sometimes love is tough actiní like Tenactin/
ĎCause even when it hurts love will still choose to speak the truth/
And wonít remain hidden instead of bringing reproof

Hook:

Verse 3
Theyíre those who give freely/
Itís easy for them to share the love that they have with the needy/
Then thereís the greedy/
You gotta earn every smile they give and you never catch a freebee/
What is it that makes one man give/
And makes another man put a lock on his/
And say, ďIím not goní giveĒ?/
Maybe itís the difference in the way that he thinks God forgives/
What he thinks he sees, he does such/
If he sees heís been forgiven much, he loves much/
But if he thinks his sins are mad small/
Then heís never seen love so he canít give it at all/
To him itís just as if heís earned everything that he has/
And he never needed a gift and he made it without love/
But what is it that he has that hasnít actually come down to him from above?
