And say the words that no one else will ever say
Love like the world we know is over in a day

I'm gonna show you love in every language
I'm gonna speak with words that need no form
I'm gonna give you what you never had before

And you're beautiful
And I am weakened by the force of your eyes
So shine bright
To separate the truth from the lies
I'm gonna show you love


What you never had before
Had before

So tie me to a tree and let the smoke and ash collect
No, I won't regret to let love do what love will let
And you can drown in mixed emotions
And walk across an angry sea
This is the cost of being free

[Chorus: x2]

I'm gonna show you love, love in every language
I'm gonna show you love you never had before
I'm gonna show you love, love in every language
I'm gonna show you love you never had before
I'm gonna show you love

    General Commentthis song to me speaks of giving the agape love that God has for us back to him through our sincere acts of faith. The last verse especially ('So tie me to a tree...') deals with the issues of doing whatever love commands. We would do it for our lovers or our children, what about for our Father above?

    Simple and uncompromising

    General CommentI think this song also expresses the love God shows EVERYONE through Christ and how that kind of love can break any barrier set in front of it: language etc.

    General Commentfor me this is like a song about a person who is ready to commit and would do whatever it takes to apprehend his/her love.

    the first time I heard it, it feels like a wedding song. oh well, that's just my take on that.

    General CommentI'm not very good and very eloquent in expressing things.. Especially English is not my native language. But here's my take on this song, Show You Love is about God's grace, patience, and unending love for humanity. First He gave His undivided attention only to His chosen people Israel '. He gave them 'the law', with its rules, sacrifices, etc. But still they kept on being wayward. And can't abide on it. Despite of their privileges and closeness to God. But still God was very patient with them. Until He sent His Only Son Jesus. The perfect sacrifice, the redeemer.. But God's people rejected their messiah. But through their rejection the gentiles are also blessed! Every nation who have heard the good news of salvation, and accepted and gonna accept the Son, and believe are saved and gonna be saved. It shows that God has no favorites be you are a gentile or a Jew. God's expression of love was when He sent His only begotten Son to save us from sin and death, from the grasp and lies of Satan with His precious blood. God the Father and Jesus the Son has shown us love , no matter what language, what dialect we speak. All we need to do is to have faith and be obedient.
