"Love Is not a Verb"

Words & Music by James Nihan and Dawn Zurlinden

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

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
