About the Song
“Livin on Love” is the seventh song Jackson wrote that have reached number one. The song gives us a story of a young couple who were passionately in love with each other. Despite not having anything, they still vow to love each other and spend the rest of their lives together. Isn’t it such a lovely thing to hear or see people in love and not letting anything thing come between them?
Two young people, without a thing
Say some vows and spread their wings
And settle with just what they need
Living on love
The song proceeds on telling how the couple lives together until they grow old together. It may seem simple, the love shared by the characters in the song, but they went through difficult times in their relationship. But what kept them going is the love they have for each other.
Two old people, without a thing
Children gone but still they sing
Side by side on that front porch swing
Living on love
