"This = Love" as written by Daniel John O'donoghue, Mark Anthony Sheehan, Glen Joseph Power and Benjamin Allan Sargeant....
It's in the eyes of the children
As they leave for the very first time
And it's in the heart of the soldier
As he takes a bullet on the frontline
It's in the face of a mother
As she takes the force of a blow
And it's in the hands of the father, yeah
As he works his fingers to the bone, yeah

I'm standing under a white flag, oh
Can you see me, oh
Can you see me, oh
I'm standing for everything we have, oh
Can you hear me, oh
Can you hear me

This is why we do it
This is worth the pain
This is where we fall down
And get back up again
This is where the heart lies

This is from above
Love is this, this is love
Love is why we do it
Love is worth the pain
Love is why we fall down
And get back up again
Love is where the heart lies
Love is from above
Love is this, this is love

This is love
This is love
This is love

It's in the soul of a city
What it does after it crumbles and burns
And it's in the blood of a hero
To know where he goes he may never return

I'm standing under a white flag, oh
Can you see me, oh
Can you see me, oh
I'm standing for everything we have, oh
Can you hear me, oh
Can you hear me

This is why we do it
This is worth the pain
This is where we fall down
And get back up again
This is where the heart lies
This is from above
Love is this, this is love
Love is why we do it
Love is worth the pain
Love is why we fall down
And get back up again
Love is where the heart lies
Love is from above
Love is this, this is love

This is love, this is love
This is love, this is love
This is love, this is love

If you could be anywhere that you wanted to be
With anyone that you wanted to be with
Doing anything that you wanted to do
What would it be and who would it be with you
Time flies but you're the pilot
It moves real fast but you're the driver
You may crash and burn sometimes

This is why we do it
This is worth the pain
This is where we fall down
And get back up again
This is where the heart lies
This is from above
Love is this, this is love
Love is why we do it
Love is worth the pain
Love is why we fall down
And get back up again
Love is where the heart lies
Love is from above
Love is this, this is love

    General CommentI think the song just tells us exaclly what they see love as, showing that love isn't about relationships about the love between children and their parents. It also shows us what love should be, it should be about protecting somebody and doing anything for someone and why we do the things in life that others may think is stupid, but they do it for love. It talks about love keeping us going even if it does knock us down.

    My favorite line from this song is

    'And it's in the heart of the soldier
    As he takes a bullet on the frontline'

    It's beautiful and that is heroic love.

    General CommentOne of my favourites in 'Science & Faith'. This song shows that love isn't always about a relationship between a pair of lovers. It can also be about the love between children and parents. Love should always exist no matter what happens. It doesn't matter if love causes pain because true love will bring us back up again. Love is worth it.

    General Commenti think this song means even after everything that heartbreak brings us. it is still worth it. love is still worth it. "this is why we do it.. this is worth the pain.. this is why we fall down and get back up again." it's worth it to get your heart broken if you truly find it (love.)

    My OpinionI completely agree that this song has to be about love. But this kind of love is different. Throughout the entire song this love is being labeled as either "this" or "it's". At the end of the first verses however a chorus comes in play and defines this as love. Clearly we realized this as the name of the song is This=Love. But that leaves us to figure out what is this love that they wrote about. My personal opinion is that love is the love of God.

    Listen to the song below with lyrics and think about this analogy.
