"Only Love" as written by and Derek Grant Daniel Andriano....
How young are you gonna be when you die?
I guess I never really thought about that
You're dying when you start thinking like that
All I know is that time is undefeated so far

Get right with god before its time
I hear that the telephone works both ways
Think you can make a little effort some day?

I gotta awful lot going on with the things that I can see
And what I see are the reasons that I be
And the blood I give to her, and her
That's all there is

It's only love that keeps us here
And this food and these drinks they are poison
And life is dead
So die well with some good distractions
At the end there is only love

Separate these lies like there's a truth
I don't know who the hell told you
You've probably been lying since you murdered my youth

I know you're going take what's left, but you'll never see me run
No, here I am
Can you see what's in these hands?
It's everything I need to see, to breath, to feel

It's only love that keeps us here
And this food and these drinks they are poison
And life is dead
So die well with some good distractions
At the end there is only love

I lie awake, don't miss her
I lay with all that I love
And all I need on this earth
Like what's below

It's only love that keeps us here
And this food and these drinks they are poison
And life is dead
So die well with some good distractions
At the end there is only love
At the end there is only love

    General CommentMy favorite one in the new album My Shame Is True. the song is about the power of love. good or bad, life & death. we must stay positive and enjoy our life...

    .....
    It's only love that keeps us here
    And this food and these dreams they are poison
    And life is good
    So die well with some good distractions
    At the end there is only love

    My InterpretationIt's about living and dying well. Despite the fact that there are awful things that will happen to you in life, you must live a good one. He's also singing about how you shouldn't be worried about death, because that anxiety will diminish the quality of your life.
    Great song by a great lyricist. I don't like this album quite as much as This Addiction, but I do greatly enjoy My Shame Is True because of songs like this.

    General CommentThank you for adding the lyrics, but they are incorrect in one instance, at least. My source? The lyric book that came with the CD.

    It is
    "And life is death,"
    instead of
    "And life is good,"

    But thank you very much for adding these.
