"Is This Love?" as written by Greg Brown and John Mccrea....
I can't believe it's true, I can't believe that you
Don't want me anymore
You're with him and you don't even know

That I've been dying all day long
And singing sad, sad songs
And wishing you were gone

Ha, is this love?
Oh, is this love?
Is this love?
Or should I close the door?

Yea, my eyes are burning in my head
And seeing only red
And wishing you were dead

Is this love?
Oh, is this love?
Is this love?
Oh, no is this love? I don't thing so
Is this love?
Or should I
Or should I, should I
Should I close the door?
Should I close the door? Aah, I fooled myself
Yea, alright, okay

Is this love? Tell me
Is this love? I don't thing so
(Is this love?)
Is this love?
Oh, no is this love?
Is this love?
Or should I
Or should I
Or should I, should I
Should I close the door?

    General CommentThis song is about a man who was in a great relationship with some girl until she left him for some other guy. He's still in love with her and appears to be very upset that she is with someone else. He is still leaving his door open for her to return through, but he is wondering if it is a futile effort.

    General Commentmy take on this song: John McCrea is really really pissed at his ex-girlfriend for leaving and he is sarcastically asking himself 'is this love?' because he used to really love her and he's wondering what happened to their love because what he's feeling now certainly isn't.

    General CommentI could swear he says: Oh poo myself
    instead of: Ah, I fooled myself

    am I the only one?

    General CommentTo tunasandwich77: let's flesh this out a little further and also assume John's ruminating on what *he* did to drive this woman into another man's arms, thus that intense self-righteous anger and pain he's expressing. Self-incrimination can be such a dangerous emotion which clouds any rational thought--and believe me, rationality has just been kicked to the curb!
