Wonderful. Loved to get this song so unexpected late tonight. How did you get information about it?

"There is a rainbow in my sky". Love this part of the lyrics.

Thanks!

Heather on Facebook about it:

Just recorded this song I wrote last month, and thought I'd share. Was inspired by the ruling of Supreme Court here in Bermuda last month in favour of marriage equality. The case had been a long heated battle fought by lawyers who did it all pro bono. I was moved for obvious reasons - feeling strongly that all humans should have the same rights. Kudos to those who put themselves on the line for equal rights. May we all live in peace and harmony! Love wins. Oliver Grant on piano. #lovewins #humanrights #equalrights #marriageequality

Absolutely beautiful, awesome song!
She should send it to Melissa Etheridge (who's very much into LGBT rights). A duet with Heather on guitar and Melissa on piano plus their fantastic voices together would be terrific for me.

Thank you Heather, for putting this song up, right when I needed it in my life. Absolutely beautiful, goosebumps over and over while listening. Great piano and Heathers voice speaks for itself. If there would be a cello additionally, I think I would cry.

Love wins.

Nice enough and sweet to get it as a freebie but a bit too obvious musically for my liking. Not quite on par with most of the material on The Way It Feels IMO.

Usually Cass is posting the lyrics of new songs. I donít know if heís into doing it for ďLove winsĒ. As I did it for myself, I share it here.
Iím not sure about the underlined words. Maybe someone can help out? As to the rest I hope itís okay. If not, say so and Iíll change it.


LOVE WINS by Heather Nova

Is there really any question when the answer is: love wins
I donít think thereís any other way Iíd wanna live
Looking out at the horizon thereís a rainbow arching high
When all the colours bleed together did you ever wonder why

Love wins No question in our minds
No one gets left behind The truth becomes the law for all to recognize
Love wins We turned the ______? tide Now everything is bright
I put my arms around you Thereís a rainbow in our sky

Life is short enough to measure so hold each other close
ĎCause thereís no time to lose when you found the one you love the most
We can dream into the future now and dance under the stars
ĎCause the warís been won and justice done Whatís yours is mine is ours

Love wins No question in our minds
No one gets left behind The truth becomes the law for all to recognize
Love wins We turned the ______? tide Now everything is bright
I put my arms around you Thereís a rainbow in our sky

Two hearts together canít be denied
(Birds are the feather?) Take to the sky

Uhhhhh Uhh Uh

Love wins No question in our minds
No one gets left behind The truth becomes the law for all to recognize
Love wins We turned the ______? tide Now everything is bright
I put my arms around you Thereís a rainbow in our sky

Thereís rainbow in our sky

Love wins
Love wins

Ah, it's "ebbing", thanks! Unfortunately I can't edit it anymore now. But I'll post it anew, when I'm sure about the Break part.

Birds "of" the feather ?
Like in the proverb "birds of the same feather often fly together" or something like that.

thanks for the lyrics !

Yes, this idiom "birds of a feather" (which I havenít heard before) fits perfectly, as the other words didnít make sense to me anyway. Thanks, Estelle!

Birds of a feather is a very common idiom, yeah. I feel like Heather's used it before?

Great job on the lyrics!

I only spotted two small issues:

The second chorus begins with "Cause".

At the end of the song, there's definitely an "a" between "There's" and "rainbow", just like in the rest of the song.

Adding some punctuation just in case that makes it clearer for non-native speakers, especially the question marks -

Love Wins
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Is there really any question, when the answer is love wins?
I don't think there's any other way I'd wanna live.
Looking out at the horizon, there's a rainbow arching high;
When all the colours bleed together, did you ever wonder why?

(Chorus A)
Love wins.
No question in our minds,
No one gets left behind;
The truth becomes the law for all to recognize.

Love wins.
We turned the ebbing tide,
Now everything is bright;
I put my arms around you - there's a rainbow in our sky.

(Verse 2)
Life is short enough to measure, so hold each other close,
Cause there's no time to lose when you've found the one you love the most.
We can dream into the future now and dance under the stars,
Cause the war's been won and justice done: what's yours is mine is ours.

(Chorus B)
Cause love wins.
No question in our minds,
No one gets left behind;
The truth becomes the law for all to recognize.

Love wins.
We turned the ebbing tide,
Now everything is bright;
I put my arms around you - there's a rainbow in our sky.

(Bridge)
Two hearts together can't be denied.
Birds of a feather take to the sky.

Ooo oo oo oo
Oooo

(Chorus A)

(Denouement)
There's a rainbow in our sky.

Love wins.
Love wins.


----

I found one more small issue - it's "you've", not "you" in front of "found" in the second line of the second verse.

Thanks, Cass, for feedback, correction and the proper version!
Yeah, I knew I surely have overlooked something (like the "a" or "'ve"). Initially I thought of adding punctuation, but as I did it for myself especially regarding the chords, I left them out.

Bought it. A must have! Just 1 Euro for a wonderful song. Would have paid more. The download is m4a format (MP4 Audio), 7.7 MB in size. Not sure yet if DRM is on this file. Anyway, a song by Heather for 1 Euro. I guess Apple will get 30+ % of it. Just hope Heather will get more. I guess so she will anyway spend earnings so to affected people or any social company or charity.

While the soundcloud version has a constant bitrate of 128 kb/s, the iTunes version has a variable bitrate, mostly 200-300 kb/s. Not sure if you can hear a difference, though.

This is great! Shortly after seeing Heather in Chicago last year I (inexplicably) stopped receiving email notifications for new forum posts in heathernova.net. My settings still reflected that I was to receive notifications, but for some reason, I wasn't getting them. When I woke up this morning I had (for the first time in a year) notifications, and there were 27 of them! So now I'm starting to catch up on everything I've missed over the past year and I'm having a blast, learning about everything that has happened since my absence including a European Oyster tour (which I understand is all over now?) and some new songs! Just downloaded "Love Wins" from Amazon and it's great to have new music!

Apparently love loses, as Bermuda has banned gay marriage, becoming the first country in the world to do so after legalizing it.
