It Takes Love Lyrics

Still waters run deep,
Muddy waters won't keep.

Love, love, it takes love,
More than love is God above,
Heaven knows it's not enough,
'Cause this thing can be so rough.
Tried and true when I keep my eyes on you,
'Cause still waters will run deep if, in you, my faith I keep,
This thing called love.

I used to occasionally try my hand relationally,
Obsessive with the outside appearance and what I saw facially,
What I had to have, have just didn't add up,
Amount to much of what was revealed,
Seeing past they looks and such,
The baggage piled up, revealing shine through,
Feathers riled up,
Emotions rev like a engine, engine, then they drive up,
Soon she jet,
I shoot for the exit myself,
A quick outro and I'm lost for words, like Gwyneth Paltrow, (who'll be my soul mate?)
Muster up change for the toll gate,
The life I was chasing when real,
I used to roll fate with this outtake,
The right thing, I always did last,
And, like an outbreak, everything caught up with me too fast,
They can't stop me,
Come out pure as gold and do my fold,
Dismiss the latter, then I embrace the promise told,
I receive it and, with Christ like faith, I believe it,
Predestined, manifested,
I water the seed and test it.

Love, love, it takes love, (still waters run deep)
More than love is God above,
Heaven knows it's not enough, (muddy waters won't keep)
'Cause this thing can be so rough,
Tried and true when I keep my eyes on you, (making sure my thing is right)
'Cause still waters will run deep if, in you, my faith I keep, (we'll start a secret comes
to life)
This thing called love.

As the sun rises daily, I'm awakened,
How do I begin, dealing with the past guilty of sin?
Though I know I'm not enslaved by his power,
Deep inside, my soul is free, but my mind reflects time and time again,
Frustration got me burning from degrees of separation, 'cause my deeds put a distance in between the close relation with my children,
In physical sense, contact is limited to often as possible,
Visits and phone conversations,
Face the fact: I know I'm only part of half of the blame,
But, in full, I feel the same,
And at present it's not the same s when I was there to give them names,
And my presence was felt to save the claim that I was daddy,
So often I feel sadness of the outcome of the madness with me and mama,
Now we all face the drama through faith in God for healing,
Yes, this price I must pay,
Not a day goes by I don't envision your faces,
Please forgive me.

Love, love, it takes love, (still waters run deep)
More than love is God above,
Heaven knows it's not enough, (muddy waters won't keep)
'Cause this thing can be so rough,
Tried and true when I keep my eyes on you, (making sure my thing is right)
'Cause still waters will run deep if, in you, my faith I keep, (we'll start a secret comes
to life)
This thing called love, love, it takes love, (still waters run deep)
More than love is God above,
Heaven knows it's not enough, (muddy waters won't keep)
'Cause this thing can be so rough,
Tried and true when I keep my eyes on you, (making sure my thing is right)
'Cause still waters will run deep if, in you, my faith I keep, (we'll start a secret comes
to life)
This thing called love.
