There's a man on the side of the road
Left for dead
People passing by turn their heads
There's a man on the side of the road to Jericho
Needs a friend
Oh, we could all use a little more loving, couldn't we?
So come on love, give your love away with me

Hold nothing back like you've nothing to lose
Love with all you have
Like you don't have a clue what it's costing you

There's a man on his way to a church
Avoids the eyes of a dying soul
Turns his head
There's a child on the side of the road to Jericho
Needs a friend
Oh, we all could do a little more loving
Wouldn't you agree?
So come on love, give your love away with me

Hold nothing back like you've nothing to lose
Love with all you have
Like you don't have a clue what it's costing you

If loving were easy it wouldn't be love
If loving were easy it wouldn't be love
If loving were easy it wouldn't be love
Oh, you give your love away
If loving were easy it wouldn't be love
If loving were easy it wouldn't be love
If loving were easy it wouldn't be love
I'm gonna give away love
(Hold nothing back)
I'm gonna give away love
(Hold nothing back)
I'm gonna give away love

    General CommentThis song is obviously about "loving your neighbor as yourself". Dan (the lead singer) also said so at one of their concerts. It kind of reminds me of the story of the good samaritan, but I'm not absolutely sure how it was inspired.

    General CommentKeep in mind, they are a Christian band, they had to have some shit like this. Not that bad, though.

    General Commenti don't understand why people are calling this song "shit"
    that's cool if you're not religous, but you don't need to look at it from a religous point of view. look at it as being a good person!

    i was never posative if they were a christian band, but i guess this song makes it pretty obvious.
    i love this song because it reminds me to be a good person, how i should live my life.
