Love Is Everything

This song is by Jane Siberry and appears on the album When I Was a Boy (1993).

maybe it was to learn how to love
maybe it was to learn how to leave
maybe it was for the games we played
maybe it was to learn how to choose
maybe it was to learn how to lose
or maybe it was for the love we made

oh, love is everything they said it would be
love made sweet and sad the same
but love forgot to make me too blind to see
you're chickening out aren't you?
you're bangin' on the beach like an old tin drum
i can't wait 'til you make the whole kingdom come
so i'm leaving

maybe it was to learn how to fight
maybe it was for the lesson in pride
maybe it was for the cowboys' ways
or maybe it was to learn not to lie
or maybe it was to learn how to cry
or maybe it was for the love we made

oh, love is everything they said it would be
love did not hold back the reins
but love forgot to make me too blind to see
you're chickening out aren't you?
you're bangin' on the beach like an old tin drum
i can't wait 'til you make the whole kingdom come
so i'm leaving

first he turns to you
then he turns to her
so you try to hurt him back
but it breaks your body down
so you try to love bigger
bigger still
but it... it's too late


so take a lesson from the strangeness you feel
and know you'll never be the same
and find it in your heart to kneel down and say
i gave my love didn't i?
and i give it big...sometimes
and i gave it in my own sweet time
i'm just leaving

love is everything...
love is everything...
love is everything...
love is everything...
love is everything...
love is everything...
