You To Be You

He said, “Love is so hard to find; everybody’s so scared.”
She said, “Love is easy to find,” and shook the knot from her hair.
Who, and what, and why, and when
The questions never end.
Then a spider lands, upon a hand,
A hurricane clears away the names,
The eyes inside recognize the signs and
Love comes from the outside,
Love comes from the inside,
Love just wants you … You To Be You.

They said they’d tried this thing called love
and tried and tried and tried.
They said Agape conquers all and it starts when
there’s nothin’ to hide.
Who, and what, and why, and when,
The questions never end.
Then a rainbow lands upon a hand,
A hurricane clears away the pain,
The eyes inside recognize the signs and
Love comes from above.
Love comes from below.
Love just wants you … You To Be You.

You say Love is a distant thing, it never quite comes home.
Expectations high or low, you’re still just loving alone.
Who, and what, and why, and when,
The questions never end.
Then another’s hand takes your hand,
The hurricane turns the other way,
The eyes inside recognize the signs and
Love comes from the outside,
Love comes from the inside,
Love just wants you … You To Be You.
