You take a walk in the morning
Try and write it all down
Stare out at the ocean
Ask what you can do without

You will ask for a lot
You will use your silver spoon
You will work your ass off
You will walk to the moon

You can save up your money
You can buy a new Volvo
You can dress up funny
You can dance the mambo

Only love can send you to the sky
Only love can make you wonder why
Only love can shake you to your soul
Only love can be
The only love

Let's meet at the library
Then we won't have to talk
We'll stare a hole in the reading room
We'll tie a whole new knot

We can learn from the old
We can build a foundation
Throw away what we been sold
Be a brand new nation

We don't have to slow down
We got a deeper concentration
Create a whole new sound
Start a radio station

Only love can send you to the sky
Only love can make you wonder why
Only love can shake you to your soul
Only love can be
The only love

You can go to the cemetery
Talk to the dead
You can do what's necessary
To get out of your head

You feel hungry and lost
But you won't sit still
Your gonna take it to the boss
Your gonna get your fill

When you meet your maker
If she won't understand
Tell her to get over it
And hold out your hand

Only love can send you to the sky
Only love can make you wonder why
Only love can shake you to your soul
Only love can be
The only love
