"What Is Love" as written by and William/jones Bryant....
I love you whether or not you love me
I love you even if you think that I don't
Sometimes I find you doubt my love for you, but I don't mind
Why should I mind, Why should I mind

What is love anyway, does anybody love anybody anyway
What is love anyway, does anybody love anybody anyway

Can anybody love anyone so much that they will never fear
Never worry never be sad
The answer is they cannot love this much nobody can
This is why I don't mind you doubting

And maybe love is letting people be just what they want to be
The door always must be left unlocked
To love when circumstance may lead someone away from you
And not to spend the time just doubting

    General Comment"What Is Love" screams unconditional love, and is interesting because it is such an unlovey-dovey love song. The title must have already been quoted by half the world - I keep hearing over the years.

    HoJo songs (despite the sound) are extremely wise and deep and meaningful. His lyrics show his great understanding of life and love. Some of his songs have deep spiritual meaning.

    General CommentHA! Me too!! For me it's kind of like this. This is a song about a relationship (duh!). Let's pretend it was written after a couple had a fight; perhaps there was a confession of falling out of love. The rest of the song is he or she trying to define what love is in the first place. Love can't solve all your personal problems so why do we fall in love in the first place? It's a song about both hope & fear. These are some powerful lyrics.
