"Love is All We Have" as written by and Jesca Hoop....
night before the night she came
katrina the hurricane
all was calm
calm for a land untame
spill the borders of new orleans
all was calm
the plow boys play their old favorite "the city's on parade"
on parade
but deep in the heart of
the ocean
their beds were made

Love me now love is all we have
Love me now love is all we have

and the rains they came
with the force of a runaway train
ohhh run away
and the waters rose and the levies
the levies broke
ohhh run away
and the cradle broke my beloved
the cradle broke
I must stay
for deep in the heart of our home
my beloved was washed away

love me know now is all we have
love me know now is all we have
love me know now is all we have
love me now love is all we ever really had

the old church bells
in the graveyard
the old church bell
ohhh lace and stone
and the naked feet
pound the pavement
of nameless streets
ohhh faceless homes
but deep in the heart of
the american
prayers for new orleans
love me now love is all we have
love me now now is all we have
love me now love is all we have
love me now love is all we ever really had
