04. That's What Love Is

Life Is A Church
by David Phelps


Itís the only thing worth life and death
Itís the first moment and the final breath
Itís a broken heart keeping a solemn vow
And a lost soul being found
You pray for faith when itís hard to believe
You choose to stay when itís easy to leave
And when hope is gone youíre the one who keeps holding on

Thatís what love is
When you give until thereís nothing left
And it makes you give the very best
Thatís what love is
It can make you laugh and make you cry
It can let you down and lift you up so high
When you find the only reason left to live
Thatís what love is

Itís the dream you give up for someone else
Itís being strong when youíre weak yourself
Though it tears you up you trust again
Hatred loses and forgiveness wins
You turn your cheek when you want to fight
Sell all you have and lay down your life
And when hope is gone youíre the one who keeps holding on


Its reaching out and holding on so someone else will know
Love is in the not letting go


By David Phelps/Tyler Hayes-Bieck/Greg Bieck

Behind the Song:
"Iíve heard it said since I was a kid, ďThe best thing a father can do for his son is to love his sonís mother.Ē This was lived out right in front of me Ö through the good and the bad. It not only defined love for me, but it helped me understand Godís amazing love. Real love is in the not letting go." - David Phelps
