Love Life Quotes From Songs
We learn a lot of what we think about our life in love life quotes from songs. There's a lot of wisdom there. There's also a lot of bad advice. However, we'll skip over the bad stuff and just stick with what's good.
- "All you need is love," from "All You Need Is Love" by John Lennon. There's probably no simpler, and no better, quote than this. There are a lot of things we may think we need -- like a million bucks -- but all we really need is love. Yes, The Beatles got some stuff right.
- "When a man loves a woman/Can't keep his mind on nothin' else," from "When a Man Love a Woman" by Percy Sledge. It's true. Those first few days, weeks and sometimes years, it's all a guy can think of. Some say guys only think about one thing -- you know, sex. But when they're in love, it's the only thing on their minds.
- "I hope you don't mind/I hope you don't mind/that I put into words/how wonderful life is/now you're in the world," from "Your Song" by Elton John. This one probably only works if you're a songwriter. If you are, however, you've got it made!
- "At last/My love has come along/My lonely days are over/And life is like a song/For you are mine/At last," from "At Last" by Etta James. This is that moment when one's love life finally comes together -- at last. They are words that prove how patience pays off. It's also a great wedding reception song.
- "There ain't nothin' that I wouldn't do/Go to the ends of the earth for you/Make you happy, make your dreams come true/To make you feel my love," from "To Make You Feel My Love" by Garth Brooks. These are the words of ultimate dedication. If your significant other quotes these lyrics to you, you've found a real winner.
- "Only the two of us together flying high upon the wings of love," from "On the Wings of Love" by Jeffrey Osborne. Love, when it's right, feels like flying. It feels like you and your loved one are defying the laws of nature. This song speaks specifically of that special feeling.
- "Don't want to close my eyes/I don't want to fall asleep/'Cause I'd miss you, baby, and I don't want to miss a thing/'Cause even when I dream of you/The sweetest dream would never do/I'd still miss you baby, and I don't want to miss a thing," from "Don't Want To Miss A Thing" by Aerosmith. Is this really the same band that swaggard "Walk This Way"? Well, they obviously have two sides to their personality. This is clearly their romantic side.
- "I've got you deep in the heart of me," from "I've Got You Under My Skin" by Cole Porter. When love is real, it's as though one is a part of the other; almost joined at the hip, if you will. In this song, one lover has another so deep inside of themselves, they don't know where they end and the other begins.
- "I'm gonna love you, like nobody's loved you come rain or come shine," from "Come Rain or Come Shine" by Johnny Mercer & Harold Arlen. These are love life words that work especially when told to someone already with a lot of baggage. Others may have run away, but this person won't ever leave -- no matter the weather.
- "You're the closest thing to heaven/That I'll ever be," from "Iris" by Goo Goo Dolls. We can only imagine what heaven is really like. However, being deeply in love must be close to the experience of heaven.
