That's What Love Is All About


Songwriters: Michael Bolton, Eric Kaz
Performer: Michael Bolton
Category: 80s

While Michael Bolton originally started his recording career in the 70s with hard rock and heavy metal, he switched to soft rock ballads in the late 80s. But it wasn't until his fifth studio album The Hunger in 1987 that he finally hit the big time - with hits like (Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay and this song.

I think it works really well as a unity ceremony song - the lyrics are strong and talk about the commitment to stick it out even when circumstances and feelings aren't easy or loving, and pushing through to maintain the flame that started it all.

LYRICS

There was a time
We thought our dream was over
When you and I
Had surely reached the end
Still here we are
The flame as strong as ever
All because we both kept holding on
We know we can weather any storm

CHORUS
Baby, that's what love is all about
Two hearts that find a way, somehow
To keep the fire burning
It's something we could never live without
If it takes forever
We can work it out
Beyond a shadow of a doubt
Baby, that's what love is all about

As time goes by
We've learned to rediscover
The reason why
This dream of our survives
Through thick and thin
We're destined for each other
Knowing we can reach the other side
Far beyond the mountains of our pride

CHORUS

Ridin' the good times is easy
The hard times can tear you apart
There'll be times in your heart
When the feelin' is gone
But ya keep on believing
And ya keep holdin' on

Baby, that's what love is all about
Two hearts that find a way, somehow
To keep the dream from dying
It's something we could never live without
If it takes forever
We can work it out
Beyond a shadow of a doubt
Baby, that's what love is all about
