My great friends Rick and LaGlenna (I like to call them Heck and Lea) invited me to play at their wedding in the New Mexico mountains many years ago. They wanted me to sing a song for them, and I wanted to write one for them, so this one was born.
The tune to these lyrics has been long lost, I believe, and I only performed it at the wedding. To me, that is kind of a romantic notion, a song that was only heard on the day it was written for. I tried to say something in this song about the nature of love, about mankind’s attempts to “capture” it when it is actually always present. Then I alluded, in the third verse, to I Corinthians 13, and what it says about love being everlasting.
This is a fairly serious song considering it was written for a couple of people that spend so much time, to this day, laughing together. As it should be.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
It All Comes Down to Love You could spin a rhyme of another time and sing it to the moon... You could watch the fireflies dance the night away in June. You could spend your life looking at your life, wondering what it is made of... But it all comes down to love. You could take a trip around the world from the corner of your eye... You could dream a thousand questions and ask them to the sky. You could spend your time thinking about time, wondering what it is made of... But it all comes down to love. You could read the books of ancient times the secrets that they hold... The powers of the universe that prophets long foretold. Only one thing lives eternally conceived from up above... It all comes down to love.
