Song of the Day #2,341: ‘Love is All There Is’ – Sheryl Crow

sheryl_crow_detoursI’ve listened to Sheryl Crow’s 2008 album once, and that was enough for me to decide I never needed to hear it again.

That’s probably unfair to Ms. Crow, who is a talented songwriter and performer, but I just don’t have the time or desire to dig too deeply into new music that doesn’t grab me right away.

This album followed a stretch where Crow was diagnosed with breast cancer, split with longtime boyfriend Lance Armstrong and adopted a child. Lots of fodder there for a powerful, emotional album. But that first listen, anyway, left me cold.

I like today’s random SOTD, though, so maybe I missed something on that first go-around.

Everyone is talking about me
How my heart is broken
But they don’t see

When you’re lonely inside
The world looks so carefree
When you’re lonely inside
You just can’t see

Does anybody want you
Does anybody need you
The question is
Does anybody want you
Does anybody need you
The question is
All I really know for certain, babe
Is that Love Is All There Is

Every now and then
There comes a time
Someone comes along
To change your mind

You believe it’s unwise
To give in to careless dreams
You believe it’s a prize
You’ll never win

Does anybody want you
Does anybody need you
The question is
Does anybody want you
Does anybody need you
The question is
All I really know for certain, babe
Is that Love Is All There Is

You believe it’s unwise
To give in to careless dreams
If you don’t see that is why
You will never know

Does anybody want you
Does anybody need you
The question is
Does anybody want you
Does anybody need you
The question is
All I really know for certain, babe
Is that Love Is All There Is

    I stopped following Crow after her Tuesday Night album. I know you were a big fan of the Globe Sessions, and I have liked the few songs I have heard from that, but I just have not had much desire to follow her career. This song is fine, but not as interestng as the stuff on Tuesday Morning.
