Neil Young - Love And Only Love Lyrics

Long ago in the book of old,
Before the chapter
where dreams unfold
A battle raged
on the open page,
Love was a winner there
overcoming hate
Like a little girl
who couldn't wait.

Love and only love
will endure
Hate is everything
you think it is
Love and only love
will break it down
Love and only love,
will break it down
Break it down, break it down.

Tomorrow is a long long time
if you're a memory
Trying to find peace of mind
Spirit come back to me,
Give me strength and set me free
Let me hear the magic in my heart.

Love and only love
will endure
Hate is everything
you think it is
Love and only love
will break it down
Love and only love,
will break it down
Break it down, break it down.

Long ago in the book of old,
Before the chapter
where dreams unfold
A battle raged
on the open page,
Love was a winner there
overcoming hate
Like a little girl
who couldn't wait.

Love and only love
will endure
Hate is everything
you think it is
Love and only love
will break it down
Love and only love.

  19. Michael Matlosz

    The grearest garage band ever. Neil and the Horse makes beautiful majestic noise together. I believe Neil is writing about the Bible when he says " Long ago in the book of old before Chapters where dreams unfold a battle raged on the open page. Love was the winner when overcoming hate...." Not sure " like a little girl who couldn't wait" is about though.

    One of the best things about Neil is that he paints a lucid picture. He let's it take you where ever you want it to go.

  20. John Lujan

    Love this album!

  21. Peter Gonzalez

  34. vilma villaluz

    what happened neil??

  35. Anonymous Anonymous

    Pure magic :)

    I love the way he gets that scream as he slides down the string after a particularly love chord.

  36. punkfilms

    el más grande, el mejor solo de la historia

  37. Isismusicnow

    "LOve will break you down" pretty sad


    No, break IT down, not you

    Maxine Corrington

    Break hate down

  38. solejen

    This is a good song, but the instrumental part lasts a little TOO long.


    Don't think so. Too many notes?

  39. Jan Forss

    Can not be better!

  40. Jan Forss

    One of R & R´s greatest moments, along with Dylan´s original "Like a Rolling Stone"

  41. Jan Forss

    What a hell? nothing (almost) can compete whit this. Not even "Like a Rolling Stone" or Dean Martin´s "Since I met You Baby"

  42. Mart Mpv

    I have witnessed the magic that flows elegantly through out Neil's incredibly talented soul. Just blows me away every time.

  43. Shaun Kelly

    God, how I love this - magnificent.

  44. Dobroslav Bobo Krešić

    💗♫🔱Neil is king🔱♫💗

  45. Shaun Kelly

    That last solo is pure Neil - discordant, mistakes all over the place, feedback, and just awesome.


    True Story!

  46. Dave Stencel

    true rock

  47. Lance Smith

    If you're going to take a horse ride...Take the "CRAZY HORSE" ! best rendition of a great song n' probably Neil's worst haircut :)

    Robert Mckinnon

    When I was travelling in U.S. in 1979 a female hairdresser gave me a haircut just like Neil's. I was 22 at the time. Only with photos of me taken from a friend I knew it was the same. Useless trivia. Sorry.

    carlos esteban lopez maldonado

    about the haircut , im sure he did it himself , he didnt care about it.


    The haircut was inflicted on him by Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth who were the support band on that tour.

  48. London Calling

    Feliz cumple Neil.

  49. Steve Bushong

    one word! !!!!! INSANE!!!!!


    I was there. My one word is louderthanfuck!

  50. Charlie Roberson

    oh hell yeah! Neil at his solid best

  51. Pedro Álvarez

    neil young and Crazy Horse- love and only love....................9:16 minutos


    neil young and Promise of the Real- love and only love....................28:16 minutos... or so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Thanks for the heads up amigo!

  52. Ricks Americana

    So, Neil is stealing from himself, again. This is basically "Drive Back" stretched out to 9 mins.


    The lyrics are completely opposite though.....Neil has said "it's all one song"......

  53. Pierre de la Comète

    Qu'est-ce que le bassiste doit s'emmerder, le guitariste à la rythimique aussi d'ailleurs. Pas la meilleure de N Y

  54. Toni Francis

    Always thought this song would be great with a Native American Flute playing lead.

  55. Danny Matthijs

    what concert was this?


    WELD !!!

    World Citizen Surf -- Stefan

    Danny Matthijs This was the Ragged Glory Tour when he was touring in Germany. The town is Mönchen Gladbach.


    Smell the Horse tour 1991. See Sugar Mountain set list for every tour, every live song Neil ever played.

  56. Hannu Takalo

    Taas kerran uskomaton esitys Grazy Horselta. Silloin kun nämä jätkät ovat mukana, Neil syttyy liekkeihin tjms. Ihan oikeasti.

  57. Matthew Karns

    I love seeing Neil in that zone, that place he goes when is playing Old Black like this. It's truly a spiritual, metaphysical thing.

  58. Luke Padgett

    That's legendary rock-n-roll.

  59. ポーリンナタ

    great song

  60. briansutube7

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaarr the unmistakable sound of mr young and crazy horse. MAGNIFICENT

  61. xaimepacheco

    best sound

  62. toomuchrose

    The noises he gets from Old Black are simply staggering. The sound he hits in the solo at 5.53 onwards is jaw-droppingly magnificent in its savage power. The 6V6 tubes in the old 15 watt Fender Deluxe sound like an enormous jet engine on full power about to explode. There is no one else who can do this but Neil Young.

    tom blake

    toomuchrose book of tearing old black

    tom blake

    toomuchrose ...thank you. I always enjoy reading stuff like what the heck. How is he doing this. Its uncle Neal... .. Old black. You gotta friend here. Great comment

    tom blake

    toomuchrose I love old black

    Matt Kerwin - Music For All

    Very "Outdoorsy" tone ~ Love it!!!!

    tom blake

    toomuchrose right on bro

  63. Jonny.B. Gone

    I love the way he's so totally absorbed by the music, just free rockin' out. 

  64. Jon Braun

    To have seen this live woulda been orgasmic!


    Honestly, it was.  20th row center Rosemont Stadium near Chicago. By far, the loudest show I've ever attended. Still trying to decide which Crazy Horse show was best. Right now it's a tie between Rust, Garage, and Weld but one of the coolest was the show with Gin Blossoms and Dave Matthews opening. As with every Neil show, I blew off the warm up acts and went dancing to my seat as they opened with Hey Hey My My. Stood dancing for the whole song and when it ended I turned around to see the crowd reaction. It was obvious who came to see Dave Matthews, they were the ones sitting in the seats, mouths wide open with a look of amazement on their faces. There were quite a few of them and to their credit most stayed for the whole show. What was cool was seeing an entirely new generation of fans being turned on to Crazy Horse. 

    Jonny.B. Gone

    Say Dinosaur Jr a couple of decades back & it was unbearably loud people were flocking out the venue, proper ear bleeding stuff. 


    @Jonny.B. Gone Dino Jr at club Metro coming up. I'd go but i hate that place

    d mcglory

    saw 2 1991 shows (back to back) - montreal forum and albany/try ny RPI - Opening with Sonic YOuth . Hippies hated that but it was unbelievable - also at RPI Social Distortion opened (great job) with Youth filling the middle. Epic in that Kim Gordon couldnt get bass amp to work for 30 minutes so rest of the band played feedback for 30 minutes straight. Unhappy hippies. Neil and band was the best I've every seen - Montreal was exceptional and the sound was unreal. I total get how he lost some hearing on this tour.


    I was at the Chicago show smoking a joint in the stairwell during Sonic Youth's set. I'd consider myself a hippy (Grateful Dead was my favorite band for most of the Seventies) but I didn't hate Sonic Youth or Social Distortion. The thing is, whenever I went to see Neil and the Horse I just didn't give a fuck about the warm up bands. As a matter of fact, the openers I blew off for The Horse would make a great list of headliners on anybody's list of concerts seen. I did end up seeing SD in a club a few years later on Halloween. Honestly, the NY&CH fans who were going to these shows are open minded music fans. I doubt many of them "hated" SY. So I'm going to have to call bullshit on your comment that betrays a bit of antipathy towards us hippies. I also blew off a Dave Matthews set at one show so, there.

  65. Julie Tennyson

    I never thought  I Would pay money to see a guy drink  and lay over his piano saying he did not feel like working tonight.  Last time I paid money for him in Chicago

  66. unacat09

    Man.....I saw a few of these shows, definitely life changing. Madison Square Garden was fucking awesome! Bless you, Neil.


    Rust Never Sleeps was my life changer. Thank God my little brother literally dragged me out of my apartment that night to go see boring old la la la la Neil Young. When the show was over I found myself sitting in an empty stadium, awe struck. That was 40 years ago this year and he is still awe inspiring to this day.
