What's your name?
Just tell me where you can be found
My name is love, I can't be bound, no
Then name your cost,
then let me pay, my time is short
My name is love, I can't be bought, no

When everything in sight
Ups and changes our lives
When everything else has died
My name is love
My name is love
My name is love
love
love

All I say is
My life has changed in many ways
If your name is love show me some grace, yeah

When everything you know
Falls apart when the wind blows
When everything seems so tough
My name is love
My name is love
My name is love
love
love

And the water's flowing up
Up the mountain that you choose
Is it you that's climbing me
Or is it me that's climbing you?

When everything you know falls apart when the wind blows
When everything else has died
My name is love

    General CommentThis song is awesome, I just finished reading The Host by Stephanie Myers(who is a awesome!!!) and this was one of the songs on her play list, it describes Wanda so well. I just can't stop listening to it. YEEk!

    My InterpretationI have no idea if Rob Dickinson is religious (I myself am not), but it seems to me that this song is about Jesus or God, or some other spirituality. Love of/from God has often been spoken in stories and songs as something unbreakable and eternal, even when things are tough and things fall apart. It can't be bound or bought, it just is. The mention of "show me some grace" in one of the lines hints further at this. Mountain and water symbolism is also associated with religion. If the song isn't meant to be taken directly at face value, I think it's about faith.
