Love We Are We Love

Love we are young too old too soon
too old too young are we love...

are we 
love
are we
love 
are we...

Love, what can be done
with what's left behind
of your troubled mind?

Love we are young too old too soon
too old too young are we
Love we are wise too late to know 
too late too wise

Love, what have we done?
Was it a hammer or a fist?
A feather or a kiss?

Love we are young too old too soon
too old too young are we
Love we are wise too late to know 
too late too wise

Love, what's done is done.
We are on our own.
Is it a bird or a stone?

Love we are young too old too soon
too old too young are we
Love we are wise too late to know 
too late too wise
Love we are young too old too soon
too old too young are we
Love we are wise too late to know 
too late too wise

Love we are wise too late to know 
too late too wise are we...

wise
are we
wise
are we
wise
are we...

CHUCK & MIRA: "We wrote this song in the car during a drive from West Virginia to New York! It was before we had integrated drums into our instrumentation, so the first few times we performed this song at shows, Mira used a piece of plywood and a coffee can! About the song: This record, as we've mentioned, is about leaps of faith. In the leap of faith scenario, “Love We Are We Love” is the anthem playing after the leap, during the free fall! It’s a song about embracing the possibilities that come with making a leap into the unknown and also the understanding that so much of the outcome is dependent on the perspective you choose to bring to the situation. “Is it a bird or a stone?” for instance. Is it something that lifts you up or brings you down?

The original inspiration for the song is the old adage “too soon old, too late smart.” There’s something about that phrase that really resonated with us — perhaps not exactly in the way it’s intended. But for us, the idea that it’s difficult to see the outcome of things or find the “purpose” in things while they’re happening and that fear of the unknown is what can keep us from taking chances in the first place. And that maybe not following your instincts toward change ages you in some way, in the sense of dampening your spirit.

That’s true for any age. There are a lot of older people who are young and vice versa. And then beyond that — the palindrome and this idea of love — is just that love (in its many forms) is a force of nature, and it’s the impetus on some level for all of the decisions we make and this thread through our lives that connects us with ourselves and each other. So there’s something cyclical, circular about it that we tried to capture through the lyrics and in the arrangement."
