How Do You Keep Love Alive Lyrics

by Ryan Adams

Lord, I miss that girl
On the day we met the sun was shinin' down
Down on the valley, riddled with horses runnin'
Crushin' them with flowers

I would have picked for her
On the day she was born
She runs through my veins like a long black river
An' rattles my cage like a thunderstorm

Oh, my soul, what does it mean?
What does it mean? What does it mean to be so sad?
When someone you love
Someone you love is supposed to make you happy

What do you do, how do you keep love alive?
When it won't

What, what are the words they use
When they know it's over?
"We need to talk," or "I'm confused
Maybe later you can come over"

I would've held your mother's hand
On the day you was born
She runs through my veins like a long black river
An' rattles my cage like a thunderstorm

Oh, my soul, what does it mean?
What does it mean? What does it mean to be so sad?
When someone you love
Someone you love is supposed to make you happy

What do you do, how do you keep love alive?
When it won't, how do you keep love alive?
When it won't, how do you keep love alive?
When it won't
