i’m a hopeless romantic who believes in love, that it will conquer all things. it is universal and a way of sharing one’s life with all that surrounds you. a new friend brought this song to my attention tonight with a song with a similar title. it was actually this song that i was remembering from my past. i wore out and lp and cassette tape, so i spent a great deal of money back then so i could have this song and the album that featured it. it has since long passed. i’m sure if i looked i would be able to find it again but for now i just want to enjoy amy grant on the video singing in her most beautiful of voices: “that’s what love is for”…i just wish everyone would remember love. and how important it is for survival and living.



That’s What Love Is For

That’s What Love Is For Lyrics

Sometimes we make it harder than it is
We’ll take a perfect night
And fill it up with words we don’t mean
Dark sides best unseen
And we wonder why we’re feeling this way.

Sometimes I wonder if we really feel the same
Why we can be unkind
Questioning the strongest of hearts
That’s when we must start
Believing in the one thing that has gotten us this far.

Chorus
That’s what love is for
To help us through it
That’s what love is for
Nothing else can do it.
Melt our defenses
Bring us back to our senses
Give us strength to try once more
Baby, that’s what love is for.

Sometimes I see you
And you don’t know I am there
And I’m washed away by emotions
I hold deep down inside
Getting stronger with time
It’s living through the fire
And holding on we find
Chorus
Believing in the one thing
That has gotten us this far
That’s what love is for
To help us through it
That’s what love is for
Nothing else can do it.
Round off the edges
Talk us down from the ledges
Give us strength to try once more
Baby, that’s what love is for

That’s what love is for.
That’s what love is for
Melt our defenses
Bring us back to our senses
Give us strength to try once more
Baby, that’s what love is for.
That’s what love is for.
