this is love




One day, Tara and Dave sat down to write a love song and said, “Wouldn’t it be hilarious if we wrote a call and response song between the two of us and then dropped some “OH’s” in the chorus? Some of the words in the bridge were designed to honor the poetic legacy and creative genius of the late E.E. Cummings. Even though they are not the exact words from his poem, the imagery is still conveyed! Later that day, after some scribbling, strumming, and humming, we emerged with this song! We enjoyed singing it so much, and the response to it was so fun, we decided to record it as our first Single!


this is love

Verse 1:
Tara – You make we weak
Dave – Weak in the knees
Tara – When I see you
Dave – My heart, it sings!
Tara – We’ll be together forever
Dave – What a dream!
Tara – You’re not perfect
Dave – But you’re perfect for me!

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
This is love

Verse 2:
Tara – You’re my sunshine
Dave – When it’s raining
Tara – Home feels like you
Dave – You’re where I want to be!
Tara – We’ll be together forever
Dave – Man, what a dream!
Tara – You’re not perfect
Together – But you’re perfect for me!

I’ll love you if the seas catch fire
If the stars walk backward in the sky
Wherever you go, whatever you do
I’ll be right there for you!

Chorus 2:
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
This is love

24 hours a day,
7 days a week,
12 months a year
This is love
