Is It Love

(Gail Marten)

Funky take on the uncertainties of romantic love. Music reminiscent of Canteloupe Island. This song won First Prize in the Jazz Category of the 2005 UK Songwriting Contest.

Is it love, Is it love, And does it really matter?
Is it true, really true, Or merely idle chatter?
Is it you, Is it me? Is it us, Is it we? Is it love?
Tell me why, Please don’t lie, Will it fly, Specify. Is it love?

Are you mine, really mine, Or someone else’s baby?
Bottom line, are you mine? No ifs or buts or maybe.
Are you friend, Are you foe? Is it yes, Is it no? Is it love?
Am I high, Am I low? Should I stay, Should I go? Is it love?

Is it love, Is it love Or just a game we’re playing?
Is it true, really true Do you mean what you’re saying?
Is it you, Is it me? Is it us, Is it we? Is it love?
Tell me why, Please don’t lie, Will it fly, Specify. Is it love?

Are you mine, really mine, Or someone else’s baby?
Bottom line, are you mine? No ifs or buts or maybe.
Should I go with the flow? Should I care? Do I dare? Is it love?
Is it phony or real? I don’t know, What’s the deal? Is it love?
