You Get A Love Song Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, they ain't gonna make a movie
About a couple of fools like us
No one's gonna write a book about our little love
You don't get your picture on the local front page
For falling in love at a reckless age, no no

For saying 'I do' when you're nineteen
In a hand-me-down dress with a pawn shop ring
For having no money for a honeymoon
'Cause you're saving it up for the baby boom

For knowing a love dies hard
When it starts this young
Well, you don't get much, no no
But you get a love song

Well, this Sunday's sermon won't mention
All the work we put into this love
They ain't gonna hang a billboard congratulating us
For surviving every rise and fall
For being more hard headed than a wrecking ball
No no, no no

For letting me chase a hopeless dream
For giving up on trying to change me
For drinking your way so far down
I almost thought I couldn't pull you out

But knowing the only thing harder
Than letting go is holding on
Well, you don't get much, no no
But you get a love song, you get a love song
Oh, you get a love song, you get a love song

Next time a hurricane comes through
They won't name it after us
And how could you paint a picture
That looked anything like love

The six o'clock news don't give a damn
That by the grace of God we worked it out again
By the grace of God

For working overtime and living week to week
For letting your dreams fall into me
For being a man with a damn good heart
I'm gonna hold you through the hardest parts

For being a love that will last even after life is gone
Well, you don't get much, no no, no no
You get a love song, you get a love song
You get a love song, you get a love song
You get a love song, ooh ooh love song
