Bill Anderson — Love Is A Fragile Thing lyrics

My mama and daddy
Were celebrating their anniversary
In all their years together
I'd never seen them disagree

I said, "Mama what's your secret?
Daddy tell me the truth?"
They laid a little wisdom on me
That I've carried ever since my youth

If you hold on to love too tight
It'll crumble and crack
If you hold on to love too loosely
It'll fly away and won't come back

Love has a mind of it's own
It'll dance like a kite on a string
For something that can be so strong
Love is a fragile thing, love sure is a fragile thing

They said, "Your mama and your daddy ain't perfect, son"
We made our share of mistakes
But we never go to bed when either one's mad
No matter how long it takes

We sit up and talk things over
Till we work everything out
We kiss goodnight and in the morning
We've forgotten what we argued about

If you hold on to love too tight
It'll crumble and crack
If you hold on to love too loosely
It'll fly away and won't come back

True love is a treasure
Treat it like it is
And then one day
You can say to your own kids
