About Me

About This Blog

Songs mean a lot to me. In this Blog I am sharing songs that have specific meaning to me. My tastes are varied but lean particularly to Country.

The lyrics of a song have meaning to the writer. I know a song can be popular for the tune and beat. It is when the words find a connection with the heart and find a common experience in the life of the listener the song becomes a classic.

Here you will learn more about what makes me tick than you probably want to know. I also hope it gives you some pause for reflection too on joys, sorrows, successes and struggles we all face.

I'll give you the song title, album I found it on, and the lyrics. You can decide whether you want to download it from your favorite music site.

That's Love

This artist puts out some really good, fun, poignant, country songs! This is one of those. A great Saturday morning song! Worth the 99 cent download. I recommend the whole album.

Song: That's Love
Artist: Brad Paisley
Album: Mud on the Tires

There ain't a woman in the world that wants to hear the word "Yes"
When she asks if you think that she looks chubby in that dress
And if she cooks all day you better eat it with a smile
It doesn't matter if it tastes just like bad gravy on a Goodyear tire

(yeah, yeah, yeah)
Alright so you bend the truth
(yeah, yeah, yeah)
That's somethin' that you'll have to get used to

'Cause that's love, you'll see
We all commit a little bit of perjury
Aw, but that's no crime
If you ask me, that's love

You're starin' at a burnt steak
You bite the bullet and you clean your plate
And then you go on and on about how great it was
That's not a lie = that's love

Well, it's the very same thing that she does for you
When she doesn't bring up the 15 pounds that you need to lose
And every time she runs her fingers through your hair
And says she kinda likes the way there's not as much there

(yeah, yeah, yeah)
Alright, so she bends the truth
(yeah, yeah, yeah)
That's somethin' that you'll have to get used to

'Cause that's love, you'll see
We all commit a little bit of perjury
But that's no crime
If you ask me, that's love

You're bummin' out so she says
"There's somethin' kinda sexy about a bald head
Aw, but honey, it'll make you look twice as tough"
That's not a lie, that's love

(yeah, yeah, yeah)
Alright. so you bend the truth
(yeah, yeah, yeah)
That's somethin' you're both gonna do

'Cause that's love you'll see
We all commit a little bit of perjury
You say. "I like it when your momma comes to visit us"
That's not a lie
That's not a lie...
That's love
