This Is How Love Looks To Me

When real love is being poured into us it should propel us out of our self absorbed state so we can pour that love into others. It shouldn't change who you truly are but just make you into a better version of yourself. Real love will help you to love God, family, friends, strangers, and yourself better.

This Is How Love Looks To Me

Some people paint love in a selfish light. With brushstrokes of a narcissistic plight. A shallow feeling between two people, meant to keep to themselves and no one else. Pushing people and even God away cause after all "all we need is each other" we say. Oh this is how love looks to me. Oh is this how love was meant to be?


I want a love that affects everything in its wake. A love that gives back more than it takes. A love that is big enough to encompasses more than just our own feelings. I want a love with the power to change things.

Some people live love like they’re in solitary confinement. Abandoning family, friends, even themselves so maybe they can find it. An elusive smoke like entity, you think, “If I don’t chase after it the chance will pass by me.” Oh this is how love looks to me. Is this how love was meant to be?

{Repeat Chorus}

Oh so wrapped up in our own love that we can’t see anything outside of us. Head stuck in the clouds so high that we are blind to the people below the sky. With both feet off ground we’ve lost all ability to hear a sound. Oh but Love without you is a lonely love. I can't settle now for anything less than what I know is you’re best.

{Repeat Chorus 2x}
