Lori McKenna — You Get a Love Song lyrics

Well, they ain't gonna make a movie
About a couple of fools like us
No one's gonna write a book
About our little love
You don't get your picture on the local front page
For falling in love at a reckless age,
No, no...

For saying I do when you're 19
In a hand-me-down dress with a pawn shop ring
For having no money for a honeymoon
Cuz you're saving it up for the baby boom
For knowing a love dies hard when it starts this young
Well, you don't get much - no no
But you get a love song...

Well, this Sunday's sermon won't mention
All the work we put into this love
They ain't gonna hang a billboard
Congratulating us
For surviving every rise and fall
For being more hard headed than a wrecking ball, no no

For letting me chase a hopeless dream
For giving up on trying to change me
For drinking your way so far down
I almost thought I couldn't pull you out
But knowing the only thing harder than letting go is holding on
Well, you don't get much - no no
But you get a love song...

Next time a hurricane comes through
They won't name it after us
And how could you paint a picture
That looked anything like love
The 6 o'clock news don't give a damn
That by the grace of God we worked it out again

For working overtime and living week to week
For letting your dreams fall into me
For being a man with a damn true heart
I'm gonna hold you through the hardest parts
For being a love that will last - even after life is gone
You don't get much - no no
But you get a love song...
