"The More You Live, The More You Love" as written by Francis Reynolds Maudsley, Paul Reynolds, Alistair M. Score and Michael Score....
You never give your heart to a stranger
Or tell your secrets to a friend
You'll put your heart in mortal danger
They all desert you in the end

The more you live the more you love
Or so they say
The more you love the more you go away

They say that nothing lasts forever
And even true love turns to pain
Don't trust your feelings to a stranger
Don't want to go through this again

The more you live the more you love
Or so they say
The more you love the more you go away

The more you live the more you love
Or so they say
The more you love the more you go away

Don't ever give your heart to a stranger
Don't ever think that you can go on
You'll put your heart in mortal danger
Turn around and love is gone

The more you live the more you love
Or so they say
The more you love the more you go away

The more you live the more you love
Or so they say
The more you love the more you go away

The more you live the more you love
Or so they say
The more you love the more you go away

    General CommentSuch a beautiful song!! It could be about growing up, or better, an experienced man that talks to a teenager.

    The old man sees that the young one is very defiant and that he doesn'trust people. But the truth is that the more you get old the more you learn to love and you break the armor

    General Commentoh man, talk about a quintessential 80s song! i love this song so much. it recently resurfaced in my collection on a mix my very special friend made...irony, but i digress.

    i feel like this is very much straightforward with it's message. the speaker is wounded from a previous relationship, but i think his saying it's a stranger is more an indication that who he thought the other person was is not authentic. in this love, he loses himself too, so no one is real in the end. he never wants to go through this again, so he warns us in song form.

    the thing is, when i hear this song, i cannot help but relate while simultaneously wanting him to be so, so wrong. sigh. what a great song.
