The different facets of love inspired me to write this song. Love is an enigma, full of hopes and dreams, twists and turns. Some people are scared of it, some don’t even recognise it. Love can take us by surprise like when you think you are “just good friends” with someone. Then suddenly you or that person has a lightbulb moment. The song is saying: life is short, take a leap of faith and don’t be afraid, “it’s only love”!...more
