"The Greatest Of These (A Little Love)" as written by and Ryan Kirkland Wesley Anderson....
Tonight, tonight's gonna be the last night I'll try
I'll try to get by
Maybe tonight if it goes just right
I started with a bottle
Bottoms up
I'm out of luck
Hope was it's best friend
Left them at the top
Cold hands in coat pockets
Clinching my daughter's locket
What would she think of her daddy now?

All you need is love
All you need is love

A little love, a little love is all it takes
A little love, a little love it's never too late
A little love, a little love and faith

Shove the papers into the case
I'm heading home cause the hands just struck 8
And on and on it goes
Tired of this repetition
Over and over
And not getting closer
To where I want to go

And they say
All we need is luck
But no all you need is love

A little love, a little love is all it takes
A little love, a little love it's never too late
A little love, a little love is all it takes
A little love, a little love it's never too late
A little love, a little love and faith
A little love, a little love is all it takes
A little love, a little love it's never too late
A little love, a little love is all it takes
A little love, a little love it's never too late
A little love, a little love and faith
A little love, a little love
A little love, a little love and faith

    General Commentpretty much theres more out there in the world than working and trying to get the highest place in the world. basically it's settle for what you have and find someone to love. thats what you need. not money or to be the president off the united states. set your standards to places you can reach and be happy with them.

    General CommentThis song is based on the following bible passage"

    "So these three things will continue forever: faith, hope and love. And the greatest of these is love."
    -- 1 Corinithians 13.13

    Look it up. In fact the entire thirteenth chapter of Corinthians is beautiful, regardless of the translation. It is often read at wedding ceremonies.
