“Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air.
I know I can count on you.
Sometimes I feel like saying “Lord, I just don’t care”.
But you’ve got the love I need to see me through.

Sometimes it seems the going is just too rough.
And things go wrong no matter what I do.
Now and then I feel like life is just too much.
But you’ve got the love I need to see me through.

Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air.
I know I can count on you.
Sometimes I feel like saying “Lord, I just don’t care”.
But you’ve got the love I need to see me through.

Time after time I say, “Oh Lord, what’s the use”.
Time after time I say, “This just won’t do”.
But sooner or later in life the things you love you lose.
Just like before I know I call on you.

Occasionally my thoughts are brave and friends are few.
Occasionally I cry out, “Lord, what must I do”.
Occasionally I call up, “Master, make me new”.
You’ve got the love to see me through.

Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air.
I know I can count on you.
Sometimes I feel like saying “Lord, I just don’t care”.
But you’ve got the love I need to see me through.

You (Got the love, got the love, got the love, got the love)
You (Got the love, got the love, got the love, got the love)
You (Got the love, got the love, got the love, I got the love)
You (I got the love, I got the love, I got the love, got the love)
(I got the love) need to see me through
(I got the love) see me through
(I got the love) see me through

You got the love (Got the love) I need to see me through
(I got the love) see me through
(I got the love) see me through

You’ve got the love, you’ve got the love
You’ve got the love
You’ve got the love, you’ve got the love
You’ve got the love, mm hmm”

“You’ll be given love
You’ll be taken care of
You’ll be given love
You have to trust it

Maybe not from the sources
You have poured yours
Maybe not from the directions
You are staring at

Twist your head around
It’s all around you
All is full of love
All around you

All is full of love
You just ain’t receiving
All is full of love
Your phone is off the hook
All is full of love
Your doors are all shut
All is full of love!”

Lyrics from “All is full of love” by Bjork
