Long ago in the book of old,
Before the chapter
Where dreams unfold
A battle raged
On the open page,
Love was a winner there
Overcoming hate
Like a little girl
Who couldn't wait.

Love and only love
Will endure
Hate is everything
You think it is
Love and only love
Will break it down
Love and only love,
Will break it down
Break it down, break it down.

Tomorrow is a long long time
If you're a memory
Trying to find peace of mind
Spirit come back to me,
Give me strength and set me free
Let me hear the magic in my heart.

Love and only love
Will endure
Hate is everything
You think it is
Love and only love
Will break it down
Love and only love,
Will break it down
Break it down, break it down.

Long ago in the book of old,
Before the chapter
Where dreams unfold
A battle raged
On the open page,
Love was a winner there
Overcoming hate
Like a little girl
Who couldn't wait.

Love and only love
Will endure
Hate is everything
You think it is
Love and only love
Will break it down
Love and only love.
