lyrics

What do you feel
When you feel love?
Is it the warmth of a touch?
Or the grace of a dove?
How do you know
When you are loved?

The chilling of your skin
Leaves you breathless like the cold rushing wind
All I've ever known
Reflecting and listenin'
Soak it in
The vibrant, calming tones
I feel it in my soul
What's the root of it?

What's your impression, your idea of love?
Does it end in redemption and begin with blood?
Where can you find it, discover it under the sun?

I'm looking forward
Or should I look within?
Stare straight up to the sun now
What do you make of it?
Blindness' taking over, yet now I finally see
I feel an ideal, absolute difference
There's love at the root of me

Love is an ocean
And I... am landlocked at the moment
Finding my way to shore
Ignoring all the signs
A wretched self of selfish wealth
I'm a weary soul
What love do I deserve?

I drove home from the lake
And I burst out in tears
It was... a little bit of everything
A little bit of everything

(There's love at the root of me)

I'm looking forward
Or should I look within?
Stare straight up to the Son now,
What do you make of Him?
Blindness' taking over, yet now I finally see
I feel an ideal, absolute presence
Love resides in me
