Love's in need of love today. . .

Good morn or evening friends
Here's your friendly announcer
I have serious news to pass onto everybody
What I'm about to say
Could mean the world's disaster
Could change your joy and laughter into tears and pain. . . 

It is very easy to hate rather than love.
It's the same as saying it's easier to be bad rather than good.
Being good means different things to different people, but overall we generally (and this is a generalisation here too ha!) think that being good means that we don't hurt others and possibly put others before ourselves, to be selfless in some shape or form and giving love to your fellow man in some gracious way.

It's that 
Love's in need of love today
Don't delay
Send yours in right away
Hate's goin' round
Breaking many hearts
Stop it please
Before it's gone too far. . .

This particular version of the song with Take 6 shows a fantastic arrangement of the vocal harmonies.  I think about the heart breaking sentiment of the song, that even love needs love.  Is this because even love is often left without a love of its own to feel loved in return?  Or could it be because when we say we do things in the name of love, it actually isn't love, but is everything else that isn't love?  Why do you think we do this to ourselves, to others?  Is it intentional or purely by accident?  I don't think people intentionally break hearts if they can help, but it can be the price that you pay for loving someone who doesn't love you back or has no idea how much they mean to you.

The force of evil plans
To make you its possession
And it will if we let it
Destroy everybody
We all must take
Precautionary measures
If love and peace you treasure
Then you'll hear me say

Whether you choose to take precautionary measures, whether for yourself or for people that you are meant to stand up for and protect - I hope that you are able to step outside of yourself and see how much you have an impact on the world around you, because let's face it - the world would be a very different place without you in it, interacting with it in a way that shows how much you can embody love and give love in its purest form, without any illusions or hidden meanings.

Just give the world LOVE. . .
