Verse 1
C 
I could write a melody
 
That
F 
all of heaven’s choir sings
 
But
Am 
if I
G 
don't have
F 
love
 
Then it means
Dm7 
nothing
C 
I can spit out some holy word
F 
Something that you've never heard
 
But
Am 
if I
G 
don't have
F 
love
 
It means
Dm7 
nothing
 
Chorus
 
If I can’t
C2/E 
love my neighbor like I love myself
F2 
 
If I won’t
C/G 
move when my brother cries out for help
F2/A 
 
If I’m too
C2/E 
proud to forgive before the sun goes down
F2 
 
Then this
C/G 
life that I’ve been living, what does it mean now?
F2/A 
 
At best it all means
C2/E 
nothing
F2 
 
Without love it all means
C/G 
nothing
F2/A 
 
Verse 2
C 
I can dine with kings and queens
 
My
F 
name go down in history
 
But
Am 
if I
G 
don't have
F 
love
 
It means
Dm7 
nothing
 
So
C 
take the old and make me new
F 
Show me how to love like You
 
'Cause
Am 
if I
G 
don't have
F 
love
 
It means
Dm7 
nothing

At best it all means
C2/E

F2 
 
Without love it all means
C/G 
nothing

Bridge
C2/E 
I don't want to sound like a crashing cymbal
F2 
C/G 
I don't want to be some empty noise
F2/A 
C2/E 
Down on my knees, Lord, I surrender
F2 
 
Jesus,
C/G 
help me to love with a love like Yours
F2/A 
 
REPEAT BRIDGE
 
Vamp
 
And then it’ll all mean
C2/E 
something
F2 
 
I want it to all mean
C/G 
something
F2/A 
 
And then it’ll all mean
C2/E 
something
F2 
 
I want it to all mean
C/G 
something
F2/A 
 
Alt Chorus
 
I want to
C2/E 
love my neighbor like I love myself
F2 
 
I want to
C/G 
move when my brother cries out for help
F2/A 
 
Don’t want to be too
C2/E 
proud to forgive before the sun goes down
F2 
 
Then this
C/G 
life that I’ve been living what would it mean?
F2/A 
 
At best it will all mean
C2/E 
something
F2 
 
With love it all means
C/G 
something
F2/A 
 
I hope it all means
C2/E 
something
F2 
 
With love it will all mean
C/G 
something
F2/A
