This song was inspired by conversations with our dear friends Jimmy and Loretta. They often shared their struggles to make their lives come together and one day while driving around in the car the words just started to come to me. I had Chani grab an envelope off the floor and scribble down the words as they popped into my head. I think a lot of the lyrics apply to all of us.

Gotta Get Back To Love

When we get to fighting one on one
We square off until we're done
'Til we get back to where we started from
Not so long ago
When an eagle flew cross the western sky
And you said I do, and I said so do I
You know we love each other
You know it's true
It all comes down to me and you
And that's why

We gotta get back to love
Let's throw down the guns and take off the gloves
You're the one that I'm dreaming off
Gotta get back to love

When we get mad we wanna get even
Eye for eye and even Steven
Take a look around ain't nobody leavin'
Nobody sayin' bye bye
And when I lay me down with you
I know love and I know that it's true
There ain't nobody else for me but you
No lie

We gotta get back to love
Let's throw down the guns and take off the gloves
You're the one that I'm dreaming off
Gotta get back to love

I feel caged and you feel cheated
Me oh my we're so mistreated
Two contenders claiming undefeated
It's a sad kind of thinkin'
Let's not repeat it

When love is real it shouldn't feel like a tether
Whether or not we stay together
If we stay together let it be for the better
Let it be for the better, by and by
Like everybody else we do the best we can
It's the same situation for every woman and man
Giving their all to understand
Sometimes you can't
No matter how hard you try

We gotta get back to love
Let's throw down the guns and take off the gloves
You're the one that I'm dreaming off
Gotta get back to love
