lyrics

It starts simple
Just a little life under the stars
And you can see it growing, climbing
Always reaching, never giving up

Mighty as a forest
And tender as a rose
Plant it in your heart
And let it grow, grow, grow

Love is not a war
Isn't keeping score
Love does not antagonize
Always looking up
Never losing hope
Love is patient and so kind
Why do we live like we're just killing the time?
When love is alive, it's coming alive
More than just a fling, oh
Love is a living thing
Yeah, love is a living thing

Once a sapling
She is now the grandest of them all
So run along and climb her branches
Reaching out as wide as they are tall

Mighty as a forest
And tender as a rose
Plant it in your heart
And let it grow, grow, grow

(2x)
Love is not a war
Isn't keeping score
Love does not antagonize
Always looking up
Never losing hope
Love is patient and so kind
Why do we live like we're just killing the time?
When love is alive, it's coming alive
More than just a fling, oh
Love is a living thing
Yeah, love is a living thing
