JOHN CANNON: Music

That's What Love Is About

(JOHN CANNON)
John Cannon

Three stages of love: First verse, love between you and your other half.  Second verse, love between friends.  Third verse, love among family.

THAT’S WHAT LOVE IS ABOUT

Words and Music by John Cannon

 

I wake up in the morning smelling flowers that you placed next to our bed

Reaching out I touch your hand, so soft and so warm.

When I’m out on the road feeling kind of down

Your voice on the telephone makes my spirit come around.

 

That’s what love is about, that’s what love is about

That’s what love is about, yea yea yeah.

 

Here we are all friends, presenting our songs to you.

You might catch a frown, if somebody misses a beat or two.

When the music is all done and we’re packing for the night

We’ll be joking all around to be sure we finish right.

 

That’s what love is about, that’s what love is about

That’s what love is about, yea yea yeah.

 

There is always sadness, when those who gave us life pass away.

And we look to the children ‘cause you know, at the end of the day.

The wisdom we were given as our loved ones met the end

Is that given a True path, children grow into good friends.

 

That’s what love is about, that’s what love is about

That’s what love is about, yea yea yeah.
