"It's Only Love" as written by and Heather Nova....
I used to think that I knew what we needed
I just assumed we would always be fine
Now I don't think that we lost the feeling
But we, let everything build up inside

It's only love
But love should make us strong
It's only love
But love has been hurting so long

What a challenge, honesty
What a struggle to learn to speak
Who would've thought that pretending was easier

It's only love
But love should make us strong
It's only love
But love has been hurting so long

And it's all, a part of me
It tears at my heart
Only love
And it's all an eternity
Hoping to learn
Only love

Love

There's a part of you I'm trying to reach
Still a part I don't know
Tell me, is devotion a gift or a thief
Do you wish I'd let go

It's only love
But love should make us strong
It's only love
But love has been hurting so long

And it's all, a part of me
It tears at my heart
Only love
And it's all, eternity
Hoping to learn
Only love

Only love, only love
Only love, only love, only love, only
Only love, only love, only love, only love
Love, only love

    General CommentHow has no one commented on this song? I heard it on buffy and downloaded it. I love it:
    "Tell me, is devotion a gift or a thief?
    Do you wish I'd let go?"
    Stunning.

    General CommentThis is an incredible song. After much pondering about it, here's what I think. The woman was in a good relationship, everything was seemingly going well, and now it's kind of falling apart. They may have not been honest with each other--"what a challenge, honesty"--and now the relationship is suffering because of it. She's questioning if she should even stay in it, if it was worth it all. Anyway, beautiful song.

    General CommentMe too - heard it on Buffy. And those scenes between Spike and Buffy were so heart and gut wrenching. I agree, Tyna....this song makes me a little sad too, it's very melancholic but in a good way :)
