let’s talk about love lyrics – mindy mccready

there’s a little girl across the railroad tracks
from the poor side of town
the only clothes that she has ever known
are some worn out jeans her brother handed down

but everyday on the way to school
she sees the homeless in the street
she takes a quarter that she saved for milk
and lays it on the sidewalk at their feet

talk about love, true love
you want to talk about reaching out when the whole world’s given up
we hold the power to change a life with just one touch
come on, let’s talk about love

there’s a little boy in a private room
who’s living way beyond his fears
he sees the promise that each new day brings
’cause he knows he might not be here next year

he tells jokes to make the children laugh
which makes their parents cry
it’s such a shame that it takes tragedy
to make us see the beauty in this life

talk about love, true love
you want to talk about reaching out when the whole world’s given up
we hold the power to change a life with just one touch
come on, let’s talk about love

and looking back there was a man
who came from galilee
whose only crime was loving man
so they nailed him to a tree

you want to talk about love, true love
you want to talk about reaching out when the whole world’s given up
we hold the power to change a life with just one touch
come on, let’s talk about love

come on, let’s talk about love
