Love is the Reason  4:07

from Brother Sun

There was a time when all I ever needed
Was your smile to drive away my rain
But now it seems that hopeful light is hiding
Behind a cloud of anger and pain

I thought everything I was looking for
Was right here within my reach

I think it's time we finally take our chances
And let our hearts speak louder than our fears
Because love is all I ever wanted
Love is the reason I'm still here

Well the sage said to the fisherman on the boat
Cast your nets on the other side
And with nothing short of astonishment on their faces
They said, don't you think we've tried

And he said, what if everything you're looking for
Is right there within your reach

I think it's time we finally take our chances
And let our hearts speak louder than our fears
Because love is all I ever wanted
Love is the reason I'm still here

I don't know where our story goes from here
Too many pages left unread
Or how to carve a pathway through this labyrinth we've built
With all that's left unsaid
What if everything we're looking for
Is right there within our reach

I think it's time we finally take our chances
And let our hearts speak louder than our fears
Because love is all I ever wanted
Love is all you ever wanted
Love is all we ever wanted
Love is the reason
Love is the only reason
Love is the reason we're still here
