By Gill Oliver & Andy Bell
“I wrote this song to consider the refusal of institutions and the church to allow gay people to marry and be a part of a faith principally about love. ‘Our Love’ asks ‘What are you gonna do for them tomorrow? ’ My hopes for the future are that this song is accepted and used to reflect the love of people for one another regardless of: creed, colour, sexuality, ability, class or wealth. My belief is that we are all essentially the same and wish to be treated and accepted as such. ‘And all the young just want to love’ promotes this feeling and advocates for young and old alike. I hope to inspire change through my song and invite people to unite through the most powerful force in the world. ‘Our Love’ has been lovingly put together by like-minded people of differing sexual orientations who all believe in the freedom to express and the same human rights for all. ‘Our Love’ is for anyone who has felt unable to express their love in the conventions that surround us and have been rejected by the very people that should embrace them.”
