"Love Is not a Verb"

Words & Music by James Nihan and Dawn Zurlinden


Chorus:
Love is up above, love is underground
Love is everywhere, love is all around
It can't break your heart
It can't bring you down
Love is not a verb
It's a noun

It doesn't need a candle
Or flowers in the spring
It doesn't need a poem
Or cherubs with their wings
It doesn't make a promise
It doesn't lie, of course
It's the power of creation
It's an everlasting force

(Repeat Chorus)

It doesn't spend your money
It doesn't want a ring
It doesn't say, "I need you"
It doesn't need a thing
It doesn't take for granted
It doesn't misconstrue
It doesn't leave you crying
That's what people do

Bridge:
God is love and love is me
And I am love when I just be

(Repeat Chorus)

It can't really hurt you
Or treat you like a clown
Love is not a verb
It's a noun
