That's What Love Can Do

SONG LYRICS

She was workin’ a job, she hated to do
Married to a man, who didn’t have a clue
She wanted to leave, but didn’t see an out
So she held her pride
But wondered what true love was about

Call fate, call it luck, call it what you will

It can heal your pain
It can free your soul
It can give you your best friend
It can make whole
It can keep you going, even if darkness falls
It’ll see ya through
That’s what love can do

He was a navy vet, just divorced
Livin with his mom, finding his course
Looking for something to complete his life
Someone to share it with, and not just a wife

Call it Fate, call it luck, call it what you will

It can heal your pain
It can free your soul
It can give you your best friend
It can make you whole
It can keep you going, even if darkness falls
It’ll see you through
That’s what love can do

One day she walked through his door
He saw her in that purple dress and wanted nothing more
12 years now still going strong
It’s the kind of thing stories are made of or end up in a song

Slow down Pre-chorus:

Call it luck, call it fate, call it what you will

Raised Chorus:

It can heal your pain
It can free your soul
It can give you your best friend
It can make you whole
It can keep you going, even if darkness falls
It’ll see you through
That’s what love can do

Out:

Thats what love can do

DESCRIPTION
2010 I was in Baton Rouge, LA for my buddy, CJ Solar, CD release party. We had written a bunch of songs for my up and coming CD and this one had been in my weeds for awhile. I had a title and a couple lines of the chorus already in mind when we sat down to write. 45 minutes later CJ had strummed out a melody and I had written a song that to this day still gives me goose bumps. I have never had a chance to cut it and would love to do so. CJ is playing and doing the rough vocals on this demo.
