Yes, today (14) is Valentine’s Day. [Although I wrote this on the 13th]

Men. Are you going to do anything special for your love one?

Flowers? Card? Chocolates? Meal?

Me? Well. Done that many times over my 36 years.

No excuse for not doing it again…….

No matter how many dark days, and in every marriage there are some dark days, LOVE WINS!!

Last year at a televised live event, singer/songwriter performed her new song. She co-wrote it with Brett James and David Garcia.

She was heavily pregnant with her second child but that did not stop her singing it with tremendous passion. The song starts slowly at first and then goes at such a frantic pace you have to listen carefully to the words on the actual recorded release.

However, that night she gave us a first rendering the backing musicians didn’t attempt to drown out her voice and i picked up every single word and heard the cry in her voice as she meant every single syllable she sang. At the end of her performance she unashamedly broke down crying.

There was a stunned silence from the audience for a second before they all arose from their seats and clapped and cheered.

It was one of those magic moments that Carrie Underwood will never be able to repeat. Not with this song anyway.

The song has made an enormous impression on me and instead of repeating the story of Valentine’s Day once again I am going to publish the words of this song.

Oh. The title?

“LOVE WINS”

A stray bullet and a momma cries
Her baby won’t be coming home tonight
Sirens screaming down the avenue
Just another story on the evening news, oh woah
Politics and prejudice
How the hell it’d ever come to this
When everybody’s gotta pick a side
It don’t matter if you’re wrong or right, no, and so it goes
But I hold onto hope and I won’t let go cause

I, I believe you and me are sisters and brothers
And I, I believe we’re made to be here for each other
And we’ll never fall if we walk hand in hand
Put a world that seems broken together again
Yeah I, I believe in the end love wins

Sometimes it takes a lot of faith
To keep believing there will come a day
When the tears and the sadness, the pain and the hate
The struggle, this madness, will all fade away, yeah

I, I believe you and me are sisters and brothers
And I, I believe we’re made to be here for each other
And we’ll never fall if we walk hand in hand
Put a world that seems broken together again
Yeah I, I believe in the end love wins

Love is power, love is a smile
Love reaches out, love is the remedy
Love is the answer, love’s an open door
Love is the only thing worth fighting for, yeah

I, I believe you and me are sisters and brothers
And I, I believe we’re made to be here for each other
And we’ll never fall if we walk hand in hand
Put a world that seems broken together again
Yeah I, I believe in the end love wins
Oh yeah, love wins

Love will, love can, love still, love wins
Love will, love can, love still, love wins

Oh yes!!! LOVE WINS!!!
