This is love

philip lacey 1956 (United Kingdom)

This is love straight from the heart
This is love right from the start
This is love, love at first sight
This is love and the feeling is right

Every minute, every day, every second, every way
I think of my love
Every place and every street, every face I chance to meet
I think of my love

This is love straight from the heart
This is love right from the start
This is love, love at first sight
This is love and the feeling is right

Every sentence, every word, and every moment we have shared
I thank you, my love
Every feeling, every kiss, and every touch I can’t resist
I want you, my love

This is love straight from the heart
This is love right from the start
This is love, love at first sight
This is love and the feeling is right

Every woman, every man, every nation, every land
Anytime, anywhere, this is love so you better beware

This is love straight from the heart
This is love right from the start
This is love, love at first sight
This is love and the feeling is right
