Who built the ball that is this earth?
Gave me life, and water for my thirst.
Home for a heart till death from birth
And we're only love, at it's best or worst.

Love calling your name
I will live on
Calling your name

Who wrote the pages of our lives?
In black and white, and taught me wrong from right
It's your heart that held you tight
But we're only love
Spin me around and round and round

Love calling your name
I will live on
Calling your name

And the world seems like my enemy
The waterfall of frowns
And the wave of life will capture me
And I'm falling down upon love

C'mon now darling
I'm falling falling down on love
I'm falling down, falling down on love
I'm falling down on love

    General Commentthis song is truly beautiful, it's adam's discovery of love during a time in his life when he feels the rest of the world is against him. no one else could write such painfully beautiful lyrics...long live adam duritz

    General CommentI love this song so much! I think 90% of the time, we dance around this issue of love...we never really think things through, where it came from, where it's taking us, but Adam so simply states that "we're only love, at it's best or worst." I love how the entire song is about questioning where things came from and why they happened, but the only thing that stays constant through the whole song is love and it's ability to bring you down to your knees.
