"Love Is All We Need" as written by Martin Karl Sandberg and Rami Yacoub....
She was living in a perfect house
With pictures of smiling faces
But there's a different story told inside
Underneath it all
With the sunglasses and makeup on
Blaming the stairs at Macy's
They all knew
(No one even asked, is a something wrong?)
So they wait
Now she's gone

I don't understand the concept of
The power of one is stronger
Why don't people seem to care at all
As long as it's not about them
I say
I guess we've underestimated love
Or why would we hurt each other
Don't you find that ironical
When love is all we need
Oh yeah

He is living down his sunset strip
Singing the blues for money
It's easy just to look the other way
When you have it all
He's reaching out to find a helping hand
But nobody seems to bother
Hear them say
(It's not my problem so it's not my call)
You're on your own
Through it all

When it all becomes too real
We have a tendency to be
Too scared to face it
It's breaking my heart to see
When love is all we need

    My InterpretationThis song is about how we see certain situations, but we choose to ignore them or pretend that they don't apply to us.

    The first verse indicates a woman who is in a perfect living situation. But the untold story is that her husband/father/ someone in her life is abusive. She uses sunglasses and makeup to cover the bruises, and blames the stairs at Macy's for what couldn't be covered.

    The second verse is about a guy whose struggling to survive on the street. To try and survive he plays the blues, and looks for people to help. Unfortunately people just walk by excusing it as "It's not my problem."
