Love

Album: Fireflies and Songs (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from American Contemporary Christian singer-songwriter Sara Groves' album, Fireflies & Songs.
  • Some of Groves' lyrical content has the goal of nurturing other marriages by being open about their own shortcomings and lessons learned. Christianity Today magazine asked her if she and her husband Troy always agree on how much to share. She replied that "from the beginning, he's been [supportive]." The singer-songwriter added: "I tend to be the more confessional and talkative one, and Troy's more private and quiet. But he does not care what people think about him—and I give way too much time to what other people think. He's the one who championed the song 'Love' on this album. It's very indicative of what our struggle was—both of us were kind of looking for love in all the wrong places, in our different ways. Year seven was our crisis year, and God did a miracle in our marriage. But it was rough, a close call."
