Lyrics

It’s easy to say what I think but it is harder to listen
It’s easy to stand on the side and avoid all the trenches
But how we gonna love our enemies
When we can’t even love our friends
We build walls but we’re called
To build bridges instead

Love, love, love, love
Love is everything we need
Love, love, love, love
Love is what we’re called to be
We may not see eye to eye but tell me can we all agree
Love, love, love, love
Love is everything
Love is everything we need

The devil is crafty and we fall right into his trap
We might not be swinging our fists
But we’ll talk behind somebody’s back
How we gonna look like Jesus
When we’re only looking out for ourselves
Real love is giving our lives for somebody else
Uh huh, yeah

Love, love, love, love
Love is everything we need
Love, love, love, love
Love is what we’re called to be
We may not see eye to eye but tell me can we all agree
Love, love, love, love
Love is everything
Love is everything we need

Love is everywhere we wanna take it
(Everywhere everywhere)
Love is easier than 1-2-3 (oh-oh)
We don’t have to overcomplicate it
(Don’t have to complicate it)
Because He first loved you (you)
Because He first loved me (me, yeah)

Love, love, love, love
Love is everything we need
Love, love, love, love
Love is what we’re called to be
We may not see eye to eye but tell me can we all agree
Love, love, love, love
Love is everything
Love is everything we need

God is hope, God is peace
God is love, and that’s all we need (Oh)
God is hope, God is peace
God is love, and that’s all we need (love is everything we need)
God is hope, God is peace
God is love, and that’s all we need

About This Song

“These last couple years, we, as believers, have had some really strong conversations because in our culture, we find it hard to disagree on certain things, and still love and be kind to each other. There is this polarization of beliefs, yet Jesus reveals to us in John chapter 13 that it’s love that identifies us with being his kids. We can disagree, but we can all agree on the fact that we need to love and respect each other, even when we are at different places in our lives politically, socially, even religiously. 'Love Is Everything We Need’ is a song of encouragement for believers, to find ways to love each other even when we don’t see eye to eye on everything. Our love is one of the biggest testimonies we have.” -Chad Mattson
