Love is the most influential, powerful state of being that any of us will ever encounter or experience in the course of our lives. Many songs have been written to describe love in powerful and moving ways. Great writers capture feelings in words that describe otherwise indescribable emotions. Here I’ve put together a list of 10 song quotes about love.
1. James Taylor “Carolina In My Mind”
“There ain’t no doubt in no ones mind that love’s the finest thing around,”
2. Tim McGraw “Something Like That”
“Time can make a feeling fade
But the memory of a first love
Never fades away”
3. Queen “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”
“This thing called love
It cries Like a baby
In a cradle all night
It shakes all over like a jelly fish,”
4. Eurythmics “Love Is A Stranger”
“Love is a stranger
In an open car
To tempt you in
And drive you far away”
5. Neil Young “Love Is A Rose”
“Love is a rose but you better not pick it.
It only grows when it’s on the vine.
A handful of thorns and you’ll know you’ve missed it.
You lose your love when you say the word mine.”
6. UB40 “Guilty”
“See love is a thing well, you know?
It’s a bit like quicksand.
The more you wriggle the deeper you sink.
And when it hit’s you you’ve just got to fall.”
7. Stevie Wonder “As”
“Hate knows love’s the cure.”
8. Phil Ochs “Love is a Rainbow”
“Love is a rainbow curving down from the sky
Falling crystals of colour, shades of warm that never die”
9. Celine Dion “Love Doesn’t Ask Why”
“Love doesn’t think twice.
It can come all at once.
Or whisper from a distance.”
10. The Moody Blues “It’s Up To You”
“In the sadness of your smile,
love is an island way out to sea.”
