Why God Made Love Songs

Album: Even The River Runs (2013)
  • There ain't nothing that can start a fire
    Break down walls, lift you higher
    While you sing along
    When you want to say it, but your words are gone
    That's why God made love songs

    Now, a boy meets girl on a cool summer night
    When he sees her smile under the football lights
    He forgets the game,
    Yeah, he's gotta know her name

    After awkward pauses and nervous talk
    Running out of words in the parking lot
    They get in his truck
    And he turns that radio up

    A song starts playin',
    Hearts start racin'
    No more waitin'
    On that first kiss

    There ain't nothing that can start a fire
    Break down walls, lift you higher
    While you sing along
    Ain't it somethin', how it can take you back
    To another time, like you never left
    And the feeling's just as strong
    When you want to say it, but your words are gone
    That's why God made love songs

    Well, they met at a dance at the armory
    In the summer of nineteen sixty-three
    That local band played,
    And they were swept away

    Nearly fifty years have come and gone
    Kids and grandkids almost grown
    Still, every Friday night,
    He digs out that forty-five

    Without thinkin',
    They start dancin'
    And they fall in love again

    There ain't nothing that can start a fire
    Break down walls, lift you higher
    While you sing along
    Ain't it somethin', how it can take you back
    To another time, like you never left
    And the feeling's just as strong
    When you want to say it, but your words are gone
    That's why God made love songs
    God made love songs

    There ain't nothing that can start a fire
    Break down walls, lift you higher
    While you sing along
    Ain't it somethin', how it can take you back
    To another time, like you never left
    And the feeling's just as strong

    There ain't nothing that can start a fire
    Break down walls, lift you higher
    While you sing along
    When you want to say it, but your words are gone
    And you sure don't want to get it wrong
    That's why God made love songs
