love

 

This weekend we were privileged to share with the Kennedys and their friends many intimate and touching moments of their grief and celebration of Senator Kennedy’s life.  One of my favorite sharings was the rendition of Love Changes Everything by Senate Chief of Staff, Nick Littlefield.  He described it as a song that uniquely expresses Kennedy’s values and especially his feelings for his wife.  Here is a wonderful rendition of Michael Ball’s followed by the lyrics.

RIP 

Love, love changes everything,
hands and faces, earth and sky
Love, love changes everything,
How you live and how you die
Love, can make the summer fly,
Or a night seem like a lifetime
Yes love, love changes everything,
Now I tremble at your name
Nothing in the world will ever be the same

Love, love changes everything,
Days are longer, words mean more
Love, love changes everything,
Pain is deeper, than before
Love, will turn your world around,
And that world will last forever
Yes, love, love changes everything,
Brings you glory, brings you shame
Nothing in the world will ever be the same

Off into the world we go,
Planning futures, shaping years
Love bursts in and suddenly,
All our wisdom disappears
Love, makes fools of everyone,
All the rules we make are broken
Yes, love, love changes everyone,
live or perish, in its flame
Love will never, never let you be the same
Love will never, never let you be the same
