Carole King

Carole King - Only Love Is Real

rate me

As I bask in the glow of a just-lit fire

Feeling the warmth as the flame grows higher

I think it's true that nothing is really new under the sun

Watching a new love grow from old love's embers

Yesterday's gone but today remembers

Doesn't it seem to come down the same for everyone

Only love is real

Everything else illusion

Adding to the confusion of the way we connive

At being alive

Tracing a line till we can define

The thing that allows us to feel

Only love is real

Childhood dreams like muddy waters

Flowing through me to my son and daughters

Everything I ever thought is confirmed as truth to me

Even as I see the way that I want to go now

Still I wish I had known what I know now

Maybe I could have spared you giving your youth to me

Only love is real

Everything else illusion

Adding to the confusion of the way we contrive

To just stay alive

Tracing a line till we can define

The thing that allows us to feel

Only love is real
