sing4peace Most Moving Love Song - folk or non-folk (135* d) Lyr Add: ORDINARY LOVE SONG (Charlie King) 13 Sep 09

I love this one by Charlie King. I've sung it for a few weddings. So far they're all still going strong.


I grew up on love songs
Great undying love songs
I thought finding love would make all things new
But now I find that love can be hidden in the day
Or lying quiet in the nights that I spend with you
In ordinary love with you.

They say love can move mountains
I'm very bad at mountains
I never thought my love could fill this earth
Instead it trickles slowly
In habits plain and lowly
In common kitchen measures I gauge its worth
This ordinary love for you.

Bridge: No one's writing ballads to ordinary love
I wonder if it can be true
Yet it seems to grow this ordinary love
That's why I wrote this song for you.

Great lovers are romantic
I'm not very romantic
I find it hard to tell you what I hope you know
It's just that when you're present
It's comfortable and pleasant
And I thought that it was time that I told you so
I ordinarily love you
With an ordinary love for you.
