Original Song – “Love Is The Key”

Love Is The Key is another early song of mine, which ponders life, love, dreams and meaning.  It makes the case for never giving up on our dreams and making love the central focus of our lives, “We’ll carry on ’till the end of time, And live our lives in love and find, That we’ll always remember, and never forget, That life is for living, and love is the key…Love is the key for the world.”  My hope and prayer is that we might all one day live in a world of love for all people, “And never forget, That life is for living and love is the key…Love is the key to our hearts!”

I recorded my original song “Love Is The Key” in two takes on Set 5 in 1996, and it speaks to love being the key to all we do. Take 2 is the better version, but they both reflect my journey, “Why is life so hard to find the answers to, Why is it love that holds the key to all we do, Why do I search for all the dreams I’m reaching for…” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark
