Super, super late this week.  Sorry.

Is this just another day, this God-forgotten place?
First comes love and then comes pain.  Let the games begin.
Questions rise and answers fall, insurmountable.

Love Boat Captain
Take the reigns and steer us towards the clear, here.
It's already been sung, but it can't be said enough:
All you need is love

Is this just another phase of earthquakes making waves?
Trying to shake the cancer off?  Stupid human beings!
Once you hold the hand of love it's all surmountable.

Hold me, and make it the truth
That when all is lost there will be you
'Cause to the universe I don't mean a thing
And there's just one word I stil believe
And it's ...

It's an art to live with pain.  Mix the light into gray
Lost nine friends we'll never know two years ago today
And if our lives became too long, would it add to our regret?

And the young, they can lose hope 'cause they can't see beyond today
The wisdom that the old can't give away
Constant recoil, sometimes life don't leave you alone

Hold me, and make it the truth
That when all is lost there will be you
'Cause to the universe I don't mean a thing
And there's just one word that I still believe and it's
"Love"
Love. love. love. love

Love boat captain
Take the reigns and steer us towards the clear
I know it's already been sung but it can't be said enough
Love is all you need
All you need is love
Love, love
Love
