i wear your love lyrics – kathy mattea

the things i’ve collected, bought or selected.
the clutter that fills up my rooms.
i can lock up and leave it, never retrieve it.
leave nothing but my love for you.

let the storm winds blow.
i will not be cold.
i wear your love.
thrown over my shoulders like a blanket of down.
i wear your love,
like a bright suit of armor reflecting the sun.
on the chilliest night, though i travel light,
it is always enough, for i wear your love.

you watched without knowing where i was going.
trusting the vision i’d found.
for if dreams were a fire, i had desire,
that could burn this old house to the ground.

so i walk quite free,
for surrounding me,
i wear your love.
like a scarf that i borrowed that still holds your perfume.
i wear your love,
pulled tight as i’m sleeping under a cold lovers’s moon.
on the chilliest night, though i travel light,
it is always enough, for i wear your love.

don’t you know? can’t you see?
head to toe it is covering me.
like a stone, the ocean’s tide,
nothing can hurt me or turn me aside.

for i wear your love,
thrown over my shoulders like a blanket of down.
i wear your love,
like a badge of devotion, of love and beyond.
on the chilliest night, though i travel light,
it is always enough, for i wear your love.

it is always enough, for i wear your love
