Song Lyrics

As I bask in the glow of a just-lit fire

Feeling the warmth as the flame grows higher

I think it`s true that nothing is really new under the sun

Watching a new love grow from old love`s embers

Yesterday`s gone but today remembers

Doesn`t it seem to come down the same for everyone

Only love is real

Everything else illusion

Adding to the confusion of the way we connive

At being alive

Tracing a line till we can define

The thing that allows us to feel

Only love is real

Childhood dreams like muddy waters

Flowing through me to my son and daughters

Everything I ever thought is confirmed as truth to me

Even as I see the way that I want to go now

Still I wish I had known what I know now

Maybe I could have spared you giving your youth to me

Only love is real

Everything else illusion

Adding to the confusion of the way we contrive

To just stay alive

Tracing a line till we can define

The thing that allows us to feel

Only love is real
