The love in you

Story Behind The Song

Took a sillouhette picture of my son when he was around 5 facing out toward the ocean with his arms out like he was conducting the waters. A question came to mind, "who's conducting whom?" From there, thoughts went to the fact that we're all just connected by love and the only thing conducting anything is the love or lack of love in our lives.

Lyrics

THE LOVE IN YOU
1995 by Steve Mason

Verse 1
Am I God or is God in me? am I the love or does it flow through me
Am I the waves or an arm of the world?
their awesome beauty as they crest and curl
Am I the voices and harmony?
the look of love or the powerful beauty
Fingers on frets and the notes sustained?
the ivory pressed only love remains

Chorus 1
Am I all these things? or maybe so much more
For years and years I?ve come to explore
It all comes down? in the end you?ll see
To the love in you and the love in me

(Verse 2)
Am I the notes that make the song?
or lovers hearts as they dance along
Or maybe stars in the desert sky?
there?s such a freedom in just asking why
The clear twinkle of a baby?s eye?
Or children?s laughter on a carnival ride
Just to stop for a moment and be?
The love in you and the love in me

(Chorus 2)
Am I all these things? or maybe so much more
For years and years I?ve tried to ignore
It all comes down? in the end you?ll see
To the love in you and the love in me

(Ending)
It all comes down? in the end you?ll see
To the love in you? Right to the love in you
The love in you and the love in me
