the love song lyrics – jeff bates

first time i felt it,
i think i was five years old,
i was scared, had a nightmare
mama was there for me to hold.

daddy he was different,
he never said it much,
but i heard him loud and clear
when he brought home that ball and glove.

and it took on a brand new meaning,
i wasn’t just a boy no more
when she moved in next door…

where you from?
what’s your name?
wanna go to my game?
got the keys to my dad’s old truck.
turn the radio on,
still remember the song,
we held hands and there it was
love…

the page just kept on turning,
there i was with someone else.
first time in my life time
i wasn’t livin for myself.

i knew i wasn’t fallin
anywhere i fell before.
this place was different,
it was deeper it was more…
then it took on a brand new meaning,
yeah it was strong and it was true,
knew what i had to do…

found a ring,
hit my knees,
couldn’t talk,
couldn’t breathe…
my heart had me all choked up.
said “i do,”
as we cried,
wedding bells,
waved good bye,
the whole church knew it was,
love…

then it took on a brand new meaning,
when the docter said “it’s time to watch your miracle arrive.”

thank the lord,
cut the cord,
take her home,
help her grow,
and complete the circle of
love…
