"Love is" is a reflection on lessons learned through past loves. It is about discovering what is – and is not – good, healthy, and nurturing love. Our own behaviours and those of our partners that, through hindsight, we recognize to have been destructive. It touches on our personal shift in priorities: previously admired qualities become less desirable, and different needs occur as we continue to develop and grow in life and love.


Love is not a fancy date
Perfect time and place
Love is not a bunch of words
To cover up the hurt

Love is not the clothes you wear
People that you know
I know love's not always fair, so
I have to let you go

(Love is) Love is not you anymore
Love is not you, I am sure

And then I met you and learned
I'd never felt love
You stand beside me
Through the hard times, cuz

Love is how you hold me tight
When I can't catch my breath
Love is laughing day and night
And full weekends in bed

(Love is) Love is with you evermore
Love is with you, I am sure
(Love is) Love is with you evermore
Love is with you, I am sure
