"What About Love?" as written by and Fitzgerald/obika Scott....
What if I took my time to love you
What if I put no-one above you
What if I did the things that really matter
What if I ran through hoops of disaster

No-one would care if we never made it
We're in this alone, so why don't we face it
There is no room to blame one another
We just need time to forgive each other

[Chorus]
What about love?
What about feeling?
What about all the things that make life worth living?
What about faith?
What about trust?
And tell me baby what about us?

How can I give this love a new beginning
How can I stop the rain its never ending
How do I keep my soul believing
Memories of how we should be keep calling

[Chorus]

Oh baby
I'll take the rivers dry
I'll take the happy times
I'll take the moments of disaster

[Chorus]

    General CommentIt's hard to believe no one has commented on this song yet. This song is so full of emotions, it's sad at times but it's also so full of yearning and is very hopeful of love.

    It's about lovers and I think they have had many problems which got them to the part where they thought that "hey, i don't think we can't work this out anymore."

    There are people who want them apart and a lot of pressure and obstacles thrown in from outside parties. They got to the part where they are thinking of giving up the relationship, tired of defending and upholding what they have.

    Somehow along the way they got distracted from what they were really about. People tell them things like what his or her partner lacks (not spending enough time with you, prioritizing career over you, etc) and somehow they got swayed by these suggestions from people and started thinking the same. Now all they see are faults. Hence, the making-up-for-it lines:
    "What if I took my time to love you?
    What if I put no one above you?
    What if I did the things
    That really mattered?
    What if I ran through
    Hoops of disaster?"

    But after some time, one of them realizes that they shouldn't give up their relationship and the heck with everyone who wants them apart. Because really at the end of the day, it's just between the two of you.

    He wants them to make it,
    "I'll take the rivers rise
    I'll take the happy times
    I'll take the moments of disaster."

    He reminds them both of the things that should count,
    "What about love?
    What about feeling?
    What about all the things that make life worth living?
    What about faith?
    What about trust?
    And tell me baby...what about us?"

    General CommentThis is how I understand the song..
    A guy is regretting for what if he loved her more than what he gave her
    What if he fight for their love, what if he make the most of their relationship
    And what if he didn't leave her when things didn't turn out the way its supposed to be


    "What if I took my time to love you?
    What if I put no one above you?
    What if I did the things
    That really mattered?
    What if I ran through
    Hoops of disaster?"

    He realized that no one would really care if both of them were lonely being alone
    He realized that they just need to start again and forgive one another
    They focused on so many things rather than being happy together


    No one would care if
    We never made it
    We're in this alone
    So why don't we face it
    There is no room to
    Blame one another
    We just need time to
    Forgive each other

    In this part he is saying so what?? Let's start living life together, he is ready to take all consequence and outcome of whatever is going to happen because what matters is our love, faith and trust.

    What about love?
    What about feeling?
    What about all the things that make life worth living?
    What about faith?
    What about trust?
    And tell me baby...what about us?

    How can I give this
    Love a new beginning?
    How can I stop the rain?
    It's never ending
    How do I keep my soul believing?
    Memories of how we
    Should be keep calling

    [Chorus]

    I'll take the rivers rise
    I'll take the happy times
    I'll take the moments of disaster
