Love Is A Word



What would a collection of love songs be without a song about soul mates?
Incomplete of course, and just that is a key element in the idea of soul mates.
I believe that everyone has a soul mate somewhere...
Somehow, your life feels incomplete and unsatisfying, and you might not even know what is missing. Until, hopefully, one day that right person comes along and turns your life upside down...

In the final instrumental sequence of the song, all the different melodies and rhythms intertwine and symbolize the strength and joy of difference in unity. Your soul mate is not a copy of yourself, but a very different person that makes you complete.

This is a song for the love of my life...


I had a room
With a secret door, carefully hidden
No one could get in from the outside
I had a heart
But I kept it in an iron box
Safe from the world

Love is a word
That I have learned from you
When you turned my life
All upside down
You were the key
That set my heart free
And where would I be now
Without you?

I had a book
But the pages were all torn out
And scattered on the ground
I had a heart
But I kept it in an iron box
To keep the storm inside

Peace is a word
That I have learned from you
When you called my name
And calmed the storm
The rage in my heart
Died in your arms
The rain ran out of tears
And the wind got tired

I had a life
But I didn’t know what living was
Until the day
I met you
