"One Love" as written by Antony Daniel Costa, Duncan Matthew James Inglis, Lee Ryan, Simon Soloman Webbe, Mikkel Storleer Eriksen, Tor Erik Hermansen and Hallgeir Rustan....
It's kinda funny how life can change
Can flip 180 in a matter of days
Ant: Sometimes it works in mysterious ways
One day you wake up without a trace

I refuse to give up
I refuse to give in (oh)
You're my everything
I don't want to give up
I don't want to give in
So everybody sing

One love, for the mother's pride
One love, for the times we've cried
One love, gotta stay alive
I will survive
One love, for the city streets
One love, for the hip-hop beats
One love, oh I do believe
One love is all we need

(Uh huh, come on)

Late at night I'm still wide awake
And this is one more than I can take

I thought my heart could never break (never break)
Now I know that one big mistake

I refuse to give up
I refuse to give in (uh huh)
You're my everything (that's right, come on)
I don't want to give up
I don't want to give in (oh no)
Everybody sing

One love, for the mother's pride
One love, for the times we've cried (times we've cried)
One love, gotta stay alive (oh)
I will survive
One love, for the city streets
One love, for the hip-hop beats
One love, oh I do believe
One love is all we need (that's right)

Baby just love me love me love me
Baby just hold me hold me hold me
Oh love me love me love me (oh yeh)
(One) One love
Baby just love me love me love me (love me)
Baby just hold me hold me hold me
Oh love me love me love me (oh)

One love, for the mother's pride
One love, for the times we've cried
One love, gotta stay alive (oh)
I will survive
One love, for the city streets
One love, for the hip-hop beats
One love, oh I do believe
One love is all we need

One love, for the mother's pride
One love, for the times we've cried
One love, gotta stay alive (oh)
I will survive
One love, for the city streets
One love, for the hip-hop beats
One love, oh I do believe
One love is all we need

    General Comment"One love for the mother's pride" - Hovis is a way better brand of bread, than Mother's Pride. I guess "Times woz hard, back in the day".

    General CommentRather straightforward message.

    Love this song though, just a good feeling throughout the whole thing.

    First time I heard it was at a club in Teda in China, played quite well by some filipino band.

    Good times.
