"It's Only Love That Gets You Through" as written by Helen Adu and Janusz Podrazik....
Girl you are rich even with nothing
And you know tenderness comes from pain
It's amazing how you love
And love is kind and love can give
And get no gain

It's down a rugged road you've come
Though you had every reason
You didn't come undone
Somehow you made it to the other side
You didn't suffer in vain

You forgive those who have trespassed against you
And you know tenderness comes from pain
It's amazing how you love
And love is kind and love can give
And love needs no gain

It's down a rugged road you've come
Though you had every reason
You didn't come undone
Somehow you made it to the other side
You didn't suffer in vain

You didn't suffer in vain
You know it's only love
That gets you through
Only love, it's only love
It's only love that gets you through

    My InterpretationAmazing song! Song is about a golden girl/lady/woman. This girls is rich not in material things, but rich in her inner being. She has been hurt or maybe has even passed; "somehow you made it to the other side you didn't suffer in vain." Very sad, yet inspirational song. She forgave those who trespassed against her. Her sufferings wasn't in vain. Her life had/has meaning. Love got her through her pain and if she is no longer, her pain is no longer as well.

    Love can give and get no gain - WOW

    They she had every reason she didn't come undone.

    It's only love that gets you through.
