A Love That Will Never Grow Old



Go to sleep, may your sweet dreams come true
Just lay back in my arms for one more night

I've this crazy old notion that calls me sometimes

Saying this one's the love of our lives.


Cause I know a love that will never grow old

And I know a love that will never grow old.


When you wake up the world may have changed

But trust in me, I'll never falter or fail

Just the smile in your eyes, it can light up the night,

And your laughter's like wind in my sails.


Cause I know a love that will never grow old

And I know a love that will never grow old.


Lean on me, let our hearts beat in time,

Feel strength from the hands that have held you so long.

Who cares where we go on this rutted old road

In a world that may say that we're wrong.


Cause I know a love that will never grow old

And I know a love that will never grow old.


I had shut down my PC when I suddenly had an urge to write a post about this song. This song has been lingering in my head for weeks though it was released about 3,4 years back.

Looking at the lyrics and the simple country melody, you can tell how sincere this song is. It's like a man singing to his beloved while putting her to sleep and assuring her how everything will be okay tomorrow - just like today. How his love will never change despite the uncertainties they would face the next day. He doesn't know how to assure this except by telling her that he knows this love is real.

It doesn't matter if you're straight, gay, lesbian, confused - you can still relate to this song. Though I didn't really like it at first play, it slowly grew on me especially after I had read the lyrics word by word.

I know someone out there knows what this song means to me.
