Love is not a place
To come and go as we please.
It's a house we enter in,
Then commit to never leave.
So lock the door behind you,
Throw away the key.
We'll work it out together.
Let it bring us to our knees.

Love is a shelter in a raging storm.
Love is peace in the middle of a war.
And if we try to leave,
May God send angels to guard the door.
No, love is not a fight,
But it's something worth fighting for.

To some, love is a word
That they can fall into.
But when they're falling out,
Keeping that word is hard to do.

Love will come to save us
If we'll only call.
He will ask nothing from us,
But demand we give our all.

  1. YES! Sadly, our culture today doesn't seem to understand this. But love is not true unless some kind of sacrifice is involved. Preach it!
