      About "This Is Love"

      Lyrics for Mary Chapin Carpenter - "This Is Love"

      If you ever need to hear a voice
      In the middle of the night
      When it seems so black outside
      That you can't remember light
      Ever shone on you or the ones you love
      In this or another lifetime

      And the voice you need to hear
      Is the true and the trusted kind
      With a soft, familiar rhythm
      In these swirling, unsure times
      When the waves are lapping in
      And you're not sure you can swim
      Well, here's the lifeline

      If you ever need to feel a hand
      Take up your own
      When you least expect
      But want it more than you've ever known
      Baby, here's that hand
      And, baby, here's my voice that's calling
      This is love, all it ever was and will be
      This is love

      And if you ever need some proof
      That time can heal your wounds
      Just step inside my heart
      And walk around these rooms
      Where the shadows used to be
      You can feel as well as see
      How peace con hover
      Now time's been here to fix
      What's broken with its power
      The love that smashed us both to bits
      Spent its last few hours
      Calling out your name
      I thought this is the kind of pain
      From which we don't recover

      But I'm standing here now
      With my heart held out to you
      You would've thought a miracle
      Was all that got us through
      Well, baby, all I know
      All I know is I'm still standing
      And this is love, all it ever was and will be
      This is love

      And I see you still
      And there's this catch in my throat
      And I just swallow hard till it leaves me
      There's nothing in this world
      That can change what we know
      Still I know I am here if you ever need me
      And this is love

      And if you ever think of me
      Let it be around twilight
      When the world has settled down
      And the last round of sunlight
      Is waning in the sky
      As you sit and watch the night descending
      A car will pass out front
      With lovers at the wheel
      A dog will bark out back
      Ad children's voices peal
      Over and under the air
      You've been there lost in the remembering
      And if you ever wish for things
      That are only in the past
      Just remember that the wrong things
      Aren't supposed to last
      Babe, it's over and done
      And the rest is gonna come when you let it

      And this is love, all that it ever was and will be
      This is love, when you let it, if you let it now
      This is love, all it ever was and can be
      This is love
