Song Description

Tough Love (A poem I'd written which preceded the writing of the song itself) like lovers? knives cut through cold the sweet-steel blade a razor?s danger edge so near the bone the cunning truth that lies dear close to home thus from passion pain is made across these bitter heartstrings plays a love so tough, a kiss so bold unto kindred spirits running deep beneath a world gone cold sweet thrill of life most beloved, most feeling pain I embrace all this, my daring being so sacred so profane George Wallace

Story Behind the Song

The unmistakable theme here is the special invincibility of real relationship and true love. Always worth having, and always worth working for. "Love So Tough" came into being because one day I set out-determined-to create a radio song, a Smash. I pretty much nailed it, I think...

Lyrics

Love So Tough

just in time for a sunny celebration day
we came through for each other
was it luck or design that signed our lives away
or are we just Perfect Lovers?
out to get it right this time no matter the cost
no matter if our lines cross
we won?t have to go eye-to-eye if we?re heart-to-heart
straight through the dark we will shine

with a love so tough
a stand so bold
a kiss so real as this, high time it was told
we are the truth
we are set free
it?s down to you and me, and that?s enough
we got a love so tough
let them give up on a world gone cold
we are warm enough
on our stand so bold
in this love so tough

with angry knives lovers lie so close to bone
how much deeper must the blade go?
the razor truth never cuts too far from home, I know
is giving up all that they know?
break your mind open and try a little give-and-take
(you?re equal to the love you make)
we are the reason the strong survive
this love?s arrived
now you and I have come alive

living in a love so tough
a stand so bold
a kiss so real as this, high time it was told
we are the truth
we are set free
it?s down to you and me, and that?s enough
we got a love so tough
let them give up on a world gone cold
we are warm enough
on our stand so bold
in this love so tough

break your mind open and try a little give-and-take, hey
we don?t have to go eye-to-eye when we?re heart-to-heart
straight through the dark we will shine

shinin? with a love so tough
a stand so bold
a kiss so real as this, high time it was told
we are the truth
we are set free
it?s down to you and me, and that?s enough
we got a love so tough
a mountain so high
a river so deep and wide
it?s never gonna run dry
let them give up on a world gone cold
we are warm enough
on our stand so bold
in this love so tough
