"This Is Love" as written by and Jeff/harrison Lynne....
Is this love
Or something to think of?

We fool ourselves for comfort,
We're swayed by every wind.
And if this isn't true love,
Then we can just pretend.
But what is love?

This is love
That you would die for me.

Is this real,
Or something to feel?

Confused by our emotions,
Confused by what we see.
We trade in our patience,
For false security.
But is this love?

This is love,
That you would die for me.

When I'm falling down,
You save me.

This is how I know what love is.
This is how I know what love is.
This is how I know what love is.

This is how I know what love is.
This is how I know what love is.
This is how I know what love is.

This is how I know what love is.
This is how I know what love is.
This is how I know what love is.

And I'd die for this.

    General CommentWow, no comments on this song. This is probably my favorite CHL song. Basically, it speaks of our search for love, getting caught up in our emotions in a relationship (in this case, probably talking about singers relationship with God). Is what we are feeling love, or is just an emotional high? Are the feelings expressed to us love, or is it false security? But true love is unconditional. Try love is the type that Christ showed for us, to die for us, even though we were His enemies. When we are at are worst, He still saved us. This is love.

    General CommentI heard this song for the first time today. Love the way the simple guitar riff plays off of the bass riff -- good stuff!

    The lines "We fool ourselves for comfort" and "We trade in our patience, for false security" seem to refer to when people get into relationships just because it's convenient, or because they're afraid they can't find anyone "better". This song seems to be for people who are not sure what "real love" is -- and it accurately says Love is this: when you would gladly, in-a-second die for someone, no questions asked. If you don't have that feeling with the person in your relationship, it's not love... it's just a false security.
