Don't look down
Cause it's easier falling from force
Just letting it take nature's course
And picking it up when it's over

Don't be afraid
Cause the chances are there for the take
But treasure the choices you make
And know when you must take it slower

You may think you've had it rough
And try to give it up
But when you think you're stuck
Just go another way

Don't let go of good times
And let the bad ones know you feel fine
And wear your heart out on your sleeve
Cause love is all
Love is all you need

Don't be rushed
Cause hurrying causes mistakes
And make sure to give more than take
Cause sharing yourself brings you closer

You may think you've had it rough
And try to give it up
But when you think you're stuck
Just go another way

Don't let go of good times
And let the bad ones know you feel fine
And wear your heart out on your sleeve
Cause love is all you need
Feel with all your senses
Make sure to let down your defenses
There's just one way to make a scene
Love is all
Love is all you need

ooh ooh ooh ooh
ohh ohh oh

Take a chance now
Cause its easy
Take a chance now for you and me

Take a chance now
You can reach it
Take a chance for me

Don't let go of good times
And let the bad ones know you feel fine
And wear your heart out on your sleeve
Love is all you need
Feel with all your senses
Make sure to let down your defenses
There's just one way to make a scene
Love is all
Love is all you need

Oh its all you need
Love is all
Love is all
Love is all you need

    General CommentThis is an /awesome/ song :D! That the singing is great goes without saying, the music is so catchy, and I like the lyrics a lot too. I mean, the phrase "love is all you need" usually seems blasé and empty, but here it's put in a meaningful context: love is all you need, the only way to realize this is to actually achieve it, to achieve it you must live fully without filters, and doing this requires that you discard all your "defenses", i.e. spooks like fear, insecurity, self-censorship, nervousness etc. I get it, and this touched me quite deeply. (It's a lot easier said than done, though xD) There are many other nuggets in there too.
    The video is magnificent as well. Christina looks amazing in it, the narrative and direction are very appealing (I must admit, I was on the verge of crying the first time I saw it xE), and there's a moment at 2:40 where song and video combine to make an inexplicably striking impression on me xS.


    By the way, I'm pretty sure it's:
    "Make sure to let down your defenses
    There's just one way to make you see"

    General CommentIt's basically saying let love take it's course, because it's easier that way. And don't try to fight fate.
