"Love Is The Answer" as written by and Todd/powell Rundgren....
Name your price
A ticket to paradise
I can't stay here any more
And I've looked high and low
I've been from shore to shore to shore
If there's a short cut I'd have found it
But there is no easy way around it

Light of the world, shine on me
Love is the answer
Shine on us all
Set us free
Love is the answer

Who knows why
Someday we all must die
We're all homeless boys and girls
And we are never heard
It's such a lonely world
People turn their heads
And walk on by
Tell me is it worth just another try

Are we alive
Or just a dying planet
What are the chances
Ask the man in your heart for the answers
And when you feel afraid

Love one another
When you've lost your way
Love one another
And when you're all alone
Love one another
And when you're far from home
Love one another
And when you're down and out
Love one another
And when your hopes run out
Love one another
And when you need a friend
Love one another
We got to love one another

    General CommentAwesome song - such a spiritual tune! Been a favorite of mine since I was little. Funny - always thought he was singing "light up the world". Now it totally makes sense.

    My InterpretationI can't remember ever hearing a more relevant, Beautiful, reference to Jesus Christ being the Greatest Lover of Mankind ever. (Shine on us all) In the song, a non-believer realizes his mortality,(Someday we all must die) explores other Religions worldwide,(From shore to shore to shore) then realizes the Answer is in giving his life to Jesus' Love for others as He so loved and died for us, so we may forever gain Eternity!!(Ticket to Paradise) And He will create a new Heaven & Earth (Are we just a dying planet) I am reduced to tears of Joy every time I hear this piece ! Just Awesome!
