I put John Lennon on my shoulder to help me write this song. Talk about having a hump on your back! Insane really to have the guy who wrote ‘All You Need Is Love’ critique your own song about universal love. It was a struggle, but I was rewarded with this song, and an insight that when everything else has left us, love stays at our side. Slide blues guitarist Roy Rogers does a tasty George Harrison style solo. This song is an homage to both departed Beatles.

Lyrics

The Lennon Song by Jim Ocean

Love stays on
Love stays here
Everything else disappears

If life’s a fire
Love is rain
If life’s getting colder
Love brings a flame.

Someone told me love is
going to wake your sleeping heart,
Someone told me love is
waiting at the center of a star,
And love will merge
cross the universe…

Love has space
Love has room
There is a place for
Love in you

Love is breath
Love has lungs
Life isn’t over
Til love is sung

Someone told me
all you need is love;
You know the words are true
Someone told me love is
going to ignite itself in you
It’s all you need,
but you need it all…oh

Love is close
Love is near
If you don’t feel it
You’re living in fear

Cause fear gets all
That love can’t find
So, see with your heart
And open your mind

Someone told me love is
going to release all prisoners
Someone told me love is
all you really needed
from this earth
The love you make is equal to the…

Love stays on
Love stays here
Everything else disappears
