Rock Ballad of the Week: Dan Lucas “Love Is The Answer”

Do you remember

So many things they come and they go

And you surrender

Ehen there are times you don´t really know

What´s wrong or right

When you lose your hopes and dreams

Baby, I´ll be by your side

And I´ll show you what love can mean, cause

Chorus:

Love is the answer

Love makes things better

You´ll always need it

You just have to believe it

Baby, love is the answer to your prayer

Love don´t come easy

Love never falls from heaven above

You just gotta find it

You gotta know it´s really love

Or just a game

And we can´t just say we want it

It can only stay the same

If we lay all our power on it

Chorus:

Love is the answer

Love makes things better

You´ll always need it

You just have to believe it

Baby, love is the answer to your prayer

I thought I´d never know

What love can do to me

Since the day I fell in love I know

I´ll love you till eternity

Love is the answer

Love makes things better

You´ll always need it

You just have to believe it
