Lyrics

"Love can sometimes feel like one big song. This one was a winner of the Country/Folk category of the 2003 Unisong International Songwriting Competition."

She was sittin' by the cherry tree trying to write some poetry
Looking like a vision from a Monet scene
I was out in the park strumming on my new guitar
Waiting for the muse to set me free
She was looking lyrical I could feel a melody
Feeding me the hook to bring her close to me

It can take forever to write a love song
But it just takes five minutes to fall in love
If we can hang together like a timeless metaphor
Then I know when we sing it
We can make five minutes forever more

She finally came across to me choosing words so carefully
Said, "You sound a little like a Dylan fan"
I said "I'm just a rolling stone chillin' out on my own
Playing the role of a Renaissance man"
She said "You must have been a friend in another existence
You feel as close as the pen in my hand"

It can take forever to write a love song
But it just takes five minutes to fall in love
If we can hang together like a timeless metaphor
Then I know when we sing it
We can make five minutes forever more

I've got the rhythm, she's got the rhyme
We'll write this song together, in our own sweet time

It can take forever to write a love song
But it just takes five minutes to fall in love
If we can hang together like a timeless metaphor
Then I know when we sing it we'll be livin' in it
It can take forever to write a love song
But it just takes five minutes to fall in love
If we can hang together like a timeless metaphor
Then I know when we sing it
We can make five minutes forever more
It can take forever to write a love song
But it just takes five minutes to fall
