Love Is A Verb

LOVE IS A VERB (J Neo Marvin-Davis Jones)

Love is a verb, it’s a thing that you do
Love’s not just something that happens to you
Love is a verb, not a hole you fall in
You can wait for an angel to dance on a pin, but listen:
Do you love? Do you love? Do you know what that requires?
Do you love or are you only chasing blind desire?

Poisoned by pop songs and fairy tale clichés
Building pedestals of Babel till you’re mugged by malaise
That’s a con that’s designed just to sell you a sack of dreams
You’ve got a whole lot to learn if you think that’s what love means

Love is a verb, it’s a choice that you make
It’s not a monument of gold, it’s an action you take
Do you love? Do you love when you say that you’re in love?
Do you love? Do you love the one you claim to love?

Be my mirror, reflect me back
See me clearly, keep this monkey mind on track

Love is a verb you create every day
In everything that you do, in everything that you say
Open up, let it go, every moment is a brand new start
Zero in on the reasons this one thrills and warms your heart

Love is a verb, it’s a real activity
It ebbs and flows like the tides, pulled by your own gravity
And it’s light and it’s heavy and it washes over you
So run in, take a swim, get wet, get dry and renew.

Be my mirror, reflect me back
See me clearly, keep this monkey mind on track
