Description
I wrote these words on April 8th/ 08, as an accompanying Poem in the ‘Description’ to my orchestral piece called ‘Lost Love’s Lament’ posted on April 9th/ 08…… I thought they would fit nicely as a lyric to this melody, so added a chorus. I tried to write about the many facets of this mysterious thing called Love and covered quite a few, though there may be more.
I did add strings and a single vocal to this, but it became too ‘messy’ I thought, so deleted them. Because of the ad-lib nature of the rhythm I stripped it down to the style of a ‘Chorale’ with a simple guitar accompaniment to the original vocals (one take), which to my ears gives a better sound and really suits the song with a more ‘live’ feel….. Hope you like this as a quiet soother, after my last hectic upbeat New Year, M

Lyrics
Love Is

Love’s the force that won’t relent; it gave us all our lives,
Hurts us, yet we don’t resent it, when it blinds our eyes.
Keeps us warm, yet leaves us cold,
Keeps us young when we grow old.
Soothes us when we have the need,
Yet cuts the heart until it bleeds.
Chorus.
Love, love, love is everywhere,
Love is part of everything we know,
Love , love, watch and see it grow
Every time we smile, we help it flow.

Love leads us through its merry dance, sensuous, loving, warm,
Makes the heart beat faster sometimes, yet can make us calm,
Makes us happy, makes us sad,
Treats us good and treats us bad,
Makes us healthy, makes us ill,
Yet we crave it; always will.
Chorus.
Love, love, love is everywhere,
Love is part of everything we know,
Love , love, watch and see it grow
Every time we smile, we help it flow.

Love twists and turns its tortuous way and leaves us in deep pain,
When it seems we’ve lost our way, it lifts us once again.
We can’t avoid it come what may,
It’s in our lives and here to stay,
Love is part of everyone,
It lives with us and when we’ve gone,
The love we gave will carry on,
In loving memory.
Chorus.
Love, love, love is everywhere,
Love is part of everything we know,
Love , love, watch and see it grow
Every time we smile, we help it flow.
We help it flow….. we help it flow….. we help it flow

Mr Cool
Lovely smooth work Maurice and that solo guitar really brings to mind those harmony groups like the Mills Brothers and the Inkspots come to mind.

Loved it!

Cheers

Really pleased
with your comments Bob especially about the vocals and guitar, which I played with my thumb (as I always used to do when playing live), so as not to get the click of the plectrum on the strings; hence a warmer sound, cheers M

VicDiesel said 2683 days ago (January 20th, 2010)
Great song
Really.

But there something weird about the sound. How did you make that harmony? Was it sung or generated some way? I'm hearing something that sounds like digital artifacts with occasional harsh spikes in the high frequencies. Also I'm not sure that this song needs harmony vocals throughout. Just the chorusses would be enough for me.

But a great song!

Moviz said 2682 days ago (January 21st, 2010)
Thanks for
listening Vic... the harmony is a mix of both sung and electronic, but I did originally leave parts with single vocal, but after playing it a few times, I thought it sounded better as it is now. I do understand where you're coming from on this though; nevertheless, I am pleased you like the song, regards M

So true
Love is a paradox. Maurice, your songwriting knows all genres. This is a sweet love song, and the crooning is pure Mo.

Under water...
Maurice,
I love these lyrics. You write from a lifetime perspective,something that's incredibly valuable...and, I'm afraid, too much undervalued or unappreciated. ... The recording sounds a little like its under water to my ears. I think Vic is hearing the same thing. Don't know if the harmony works in your favor here, or at least not on every single note. ... I do like the kind of recitative aspect of the meter and the simplicity of just a single guitar.
(Sorry I've gotten to this so late!)

Moviz said 2682 days ago (January 22nd, 2010)
Well
maybe this is one to be re-recorded at a future date Paul, though I was aiming for a sort of 'Chorale' sound on this. As you say, the recitative style does suit the song. Thanks for the listen though and the constructive words, regards M

always seems like
if anybody on this site, you have a great amount of wisdom. But I still have to say your music seems to take me on an exotic vacation.
Great talent to do that. That is why so much of music of today can rock and be glittery. But how much of music of today that is on the radio can bring a person on vacation in their minds. Right now your bringing me back to the hawaiian vacation I took years ago with my wife !

Way to go ! Thanks for changing my mood this morning. Our heating system broke in the house and this song gives warmth to back the cold easier to take. Can't wait to get the heater fixed! So thanks for providing warmth with this tune !!!

Thanks so much for that very heartwarming comment..... always very much appreciated. Sorry about your heating and hope it's soon fixed.... nothing worse than being cold and we know a bit about that lately here in the UK too..... it's freezing, cheers M

Love Is
This is a wonderful piece, Maurice, and it only enhances my image of you as being a hopeless romantic. There are some really nice chord progressions here, and I really like the less is more concept as well. So much so that I think even the vocal line would be great all by itself. Another very nice effort - thanks for sharing it with us.

Thanks a lot Sig,
I was born into the wrong age I tell you LOL I really am a romantic. Glad you like the chords here, they do bring a touch of warming homeliness I think. I just might do this again at a later date 'un-accompanied', regards M
