There ain't nothing that can start a fire
Break down walls, lift you higher
While you sing along
When you want to say it, but your words are gone
That's why God made love songs

Now, a boy meets girl on a cool summer night
When he sees her smile under the football lights
He forgets the game,
Yeah, he's gotta know her name

After awkward pauses and nervous talk
Running out of words in the parking lot
They get in his truck
And he turns that radio up

A song starts playin',
Hearts start racin'
No more waitin'
On that first kiss

There ain't nothing that can start a fire
Break down walls, lift you higher
While you sing along
Ain't it somethin', how it can take you back
To another time, like you never left
And the feeling's just as strong
When you want to say it, but your words are gone
That's why God made love songs

Well, they met at a dance at the armory
In the summer of nineteen sixty-three
That local band played,
And they were swept away

Nearly fifty years have come and gone
Kids and grandkids almost grown
Still, every Friday night,
He digs out that forty-five

Without thinkin',
They start dancin'
And they fall in love again

There ain't nothing that can start a fire
Break down walls, lift you higher
While you sing along
Ain't it somethin', how it can take you back
To another time, like you never left
And the feeling's just as strong
When you want to say it, but your words are gone
That's why God made love songs
God made love songs

There ain't nothing that can start a fire
Break down walls, lift you higher
While you sing along
Ain't it somethin', how it can take you back
To another time, like you never left
And the feeling's just as strong

There ain't nothing that can start a fire
Break down walls, lift you higher
While you sing along
When you want to say it, but your words are gone
And you sure don't want to get it wrong
That's why God made love songs
God made love songs
