LOVE (Like a Beatle)

All you need is

L

O

V

E

and eventually we’ll figure it out

scream and shout at the tops of our lungs

doesn’t matter where you’re from

who you’re with or what you do

I love you

like a sister or brother

because you are

and shooting star gazing

beats dive bars raising hell

like an archangel I fell

from the top of my lungs, deep breath

where you from? who’s left? right…

left alone

broken cell phone

broken glass, too many stones

break my heart, not sure where to start

but in the beginning they planted the seed

then something went wrong

got consumed by greed

consuming things we don’t need

I need you and you need me

and I don’t care what they tell me

and I won’t buy what they try to sell me

and I just know in my heart

that the only place to start is

L

O

V

E

eventually we’ll get there

wearing hearts on sleeves

getting raked like leaves

born again in the compost bin

back to the earth for what it’s worth

ashes to ashes and dirt to dirt

under my fingernails

cut off before I set sail

bail me out now, I’m sinking

I can’t stop thinking about

L

O

V

E

I believe we need to evolve

how about we dissolve all of our hate

lets hold hands and let perfect strangers past the gate

who’s with me? we can’t be late…

we gotta go

just imagine that we’ll get there

eventually…

from here across the ocean we’ll see

the universe in harmony

eating strawberries with our enemies

cant you see how great it will be

when we get to a place where all we see is

L

O

V

E
