Music Monday: Love Grows Love

Caedmon’s Call is by far one of my favorite bands. Often forgotten, whenever I put their music on I am instantly reminded just how much I love them. I’m always discovering new simple truths in their lyrics. Last week I was listening to their album Overdressed and this song caught my ear in a new way. It’s a beautiful song that expresses the beauty of a love founded on God. There’s something to be said about that whole cord of three thing. True love – whether it’s a romantic love or a friendship love – continues to sprout more love. My prayer for all of us is that we find that kind of love in our lives that grows more and more love.

You said to “put on a happy face”
on a high school stage
but I read what you really meant
in your handwriting on a Bible page
you waited like you told me
though we knew it right away,
it took eight and a half more years
to finally say

I fell in love with you
and that love became something new
it keeps getting stronger
than we ever could have longed
love keeps growing more love

When we got the news
we had to call our families
and start painting the room
a nice, bright blue
our vows they started breathing
and they took on flesh and blood
and we held them in our arms
and tasted God was good

I fell in love with you
and that love became something new
it added a name and it added a smile
it keeps getting bigger every further mile
there on your bended knee
we sewed the seeds of our history
they’re coming up stronger
than we ever could have longed
love keeps growing more love

If love is an echo of the heart
the heart is a canyon
that stretches wild and free
without an end
and breaks through every wall
that holds us in

I’m on the other side of the world
to see what changed you so
my heart breaks with the broken
and it dances with the hope
you told me I would find here
but I could not understand
until I’m walking here beside you
hand in hand

You can listen here.
