For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Mary Chapin Carpenter – Just Because


Have you ever loved someone you knew nothing of
Except you'd seen the light inside their eyes
Have you ever loved someone just because
Nothing felt so easy or so right

And I think of you like the others do
Wondering if you think of me
And if you do, if you really do
Who is it that you see

Have you ever loved
Whether right or wrong
Have you ever loved someone
Just because

Have you ever tried to speak
the truth instead of lie
When it seemed you had everything to lose
Have you ever tried to stand your
ground instead of hide
When staying only made you look a fool

And I stayed by you though I think I knew
It wouldn't change a thing
[ Find more Lyrics at www.mp3lyrics.org/7fkh ]
Changes come to hearts with ease
But they come so hard to me
Have you ever tried to make it
last, not knowing why
Except you had to try
Just because

And every day that passes now, I
s'pose I'm getting older
Wiser with the things I've done
But I hope I don't grow colder

And now I see the ones, who've lost so much
They swear they're done
With love and all the chance it brings for pain
but have you ever touched, and
by itself it was enough
to make you want to reach out once again

And I'll touch you when I need a friend
Or just a small reminder
That I haven't grown too cold to feel
You penetrate my armor

Have you ever loved
Whether right or wrong
Have you ever loved someone
Just because
Have you ever loved someone
Just because
Just an old song I remembered from years ago. I can think of an instance in my life that I kind of remember feeling this way - can you?
Have you ever loved someone "Just Because" you can't explain it, but you just do?

Chatty
