Verse 1

Mariposa,

To say that “I love you”

Is just not enough

Mere words seem so shallow

When you fearful seas grow rough

There’s something much deeper

That you and I share

You take me higher

Than love ever dared

 

Refrain 1

What is love?

What is love . . . ?

 

Chorus

It’s tasting your tears

When they roll down your face

It’s calming your storm

When your inner fears rage

It’s soothing your soul

When you feel overwhelmed

It’s shouldering your cares

When your thoughts just won’t calm

It’s becoming your faith

When your doubts won’t dispel

It’s catching your heart

When you feel yourself fall

 

            that’s love . . .

                        that’s love

 

Verse 2

What my words cannot say

Let my tears for me speak

When you don’t know your way

Let my light guide your feet

There’s no mountain too high

There’s no ocean too deep

I’ll be there, Mariposa,

Take my hand and you’ll see

                                    you’ll see . . .

 

Refrain 2

When it’s love . . .

When it’s love . . . . . .

 

Chorus

It’s tasting your tears

When they roll down your face

It’s calming your storm

When your inner fears rage

It’s soothing your soul

When you feel overwhelmed

It’s shouldering your cares

When your thoughts just won’t calm

It’s becoming your faith

When your doubts won’t dispel

It’s catching your heart

When you feel yourself fall

 

Repeat Chorus

 

            that’s our love . . .

                        that’s my love.
