Six-foot-six, stood on the ground
Weighed two hundred and thirty-five pounds
But I saw that giant of a man brought down
To his knees by love

He was the kind of man to gamble on luck
Look you in the eye and never back up
But I saw him crying like a little whipped pup
Because of love

Can't see it with your eyes, hold it in your hands
Like the world it covers our land
Strong enough to rule the heart of any man
This thing called love

It can lift you up, it can put you down
Take your world and turn it around
Ever since time, nothing's ever been found
Stronger than love

Some men are like me, they worry and doubt
Trouble their minds, day in and day out
Too busy with livin' to worry about
A thing called love

But then I see a mother's tenderness
As she holds her young close to her breast
Then I think by God, this world was blessed
With a thing called love

Can't see it with your eyes, hold it in your hands
Like the wind it covers our land
Strong enough to rule the heart of any man
This thing called love

It can lift you up, it can put you down
Take your world and turn it around
Ever since time, nothing's ever been found
Stronger than love
