Love, Precious Love

Words by Susan Bourrie

Music by Dorothy Chang

Call me old fashioned.

Call me naive.

Tell me I’m over the hill.

The world that we’re in

Is a cesspool of sin

Where love will not win.

Say all that you like.

I don’t care.

I won’t listen.

I’ve heard all the moaning before.

I believe in love—still.

I always will.

And the someone I’ll always adore.

I believe there’s a world

Where love never ends.

Where a man and a woman

Can be best of friends.

I believe in a love that is faithful and true

A love that survives on a miracle or two.

A love that gets stronger

With each letting go.

A love, precious love,

I still long to know.

I believe there’s a world where love never lies,

Where love never fades, never leaves, never dies.

I believe in a love that is open and new,

A love that delights in all that you do.

A love that gets stronger with each letting go,

A love, precious love, I still long to know.

A love that takes me as I am.

A love that knows the score.

A love that tells me that I can be better

Than I was before.

I believe in a world that I’ve never seen.

I know it is somewhere I’ve never been.

Where the love in your heart doesn’t tear you apart.

Where the wounds in your soul can be healed, can be whole.

I believe in a love that defies letting go.

A love, precious love, I still long to know.
