My Love Is Your Love
Whitney Houston Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

If tomorrow is judgment day
And I'm standing on the front line
And the Lord asks me what I did with my life
I will say I spent it with you

If I wake up in World War III (World War III)
I see destruction and poverty
And I feel like I want to go home
It's okay if you're coming with me

'Cause your love is my love
And my love is your love
It would take an eternity to break us
And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us
'Cause your love is my love
And my love is your love
It would take an eternity to break us
And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us

If I lose my fame and fortune (really don't matter)
And I'm homeless on the street (on the street oh Lord)
And I'm sleeping in Grand Central Station (okay)
It's okay if you're sleeping with me

As the years they pass us by (the years, the years, the years, the years, the years)
We stay young through each other's eyes (each other's eyes)
And no matter how old we get
It's okay as long as I got you baby

'Cause your love is my love
And my love is your love
It would take an eternity to break us
And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us
'Cause your love is my love
And my love is your love
It would take an eternity to break us
And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us

If I should die this very day (very very very day)
Don't cry (don't cry), 'cause on Earth we weren't meant to stay
And no matter what the people say (really don't matter)
I'll be waiting for you after the judgment day

'Cause your love is my love
And my love is your love
It would take an eternity to break us
And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us
'Cause your love is my love
And my love is your love




It would take an eternity to break us
And the chains of Amistad couldn't hold us

Overall Meaning

The song "My Love Is Your Love" by Whitney Houston is a tribute to her lover and soulmate. The lyrics express an unconditional love that is unbreakable even in the face of the most challenging circumstances. In the first verse, Houston proclaims that if she were to stand before God on judgment day, she would confess that her life was spent with the person she loves. The second verse portrays a world in chaos, with war and poverty ravaging the land. Despite the chaos, Houston finds solace in the idea that her love will be with her even in the most trying of times.


The chorus repeats the central refrain of the song; your love is my love, and my love is your love. This line affirms the bond between the two lovers, stating that it would be impossible to separate the two. The metaphorical allusion to the "chains of Amistad" is a reference to the 1839 Amistad Slave revolt that saw slaves break free from their shackles and assert their independence. This reference suggests that nothing can hold back the love that Houston and her partner feel for each other. The final verse affirms Houston's message of immortal love. Even after death, she claims that she will be waiting for her partner.
