"Is Love" as written by and Harry Mcveigh Jack Brown....
She stares into the mirror
Youth fading with the sun
The hollows in her face
Like wishing wells
Scarlet as a papercut
And jewelled as the Orion
She'd never worn that jewellery as a girl

She says 'the only thing I've ever found
That's greater than it always sounds
Is love'

He stares into the river
Heart falling to the drift
An argument of cars
Moving full steam behind
Blood-shot as a baby
And sulking like a valley
Fishing in reflections, killing time

He says 'the only thing I've ever found
That's greater than it always sounds
Is love'

It's the bath that's getting cold while you're frozen to your bed
The milk that's going rancid on the table
The panic in the evening, the photos in the dustbin, the pointless items we forgot to label
It's the perfume on her wrist, that stinks of easy birthdays
The spare keys like asbestos on the side
It's the cross around his neck, for luck and not for honour
Like diamond over knuckle on a newly married bride

She says 'the only thing I've ever found
That's greater than it always sounds
Is love'

He says 'the only thing I've ever found
That's greater than it always sounds
Is love'

I know the only thing I've ever found
That's greater than it always sounds
Is love

    General CommentThis is a very sad and moving song. Basically is about two lovers who are lost without one another because the greatest thing they've ever known was love and they could not make it work and are so distraught they are haunted by the memories of what that love was like and now it's turned their lives upside down as they have to exist without that love. They realize nothing in their lives is what it once was without love.

    General CommentFirst comment for this song! I am surprised...

    love the energy and vibe of the song, kinda anthemic. Not sure I get the meaning tho... I love the quote "the only thing that I've ever found that's greater than it always sounds, is love", but mixing it with the chilly similes kinda makes that sentiment sad... maybe thats what makes the quote even more powerful?

    hope to hear more from these guys.
