Song Description

Originally a one-take demo from 1998, the song has some energy and honesty in performance that is appealing. You would call this a raw recording and mix, having the feel of a live performance, but it was re-mastered by David "Rainman" Banta in 2015, and assigned an ASCAP catalog number. The song is about hanging on to a relationship that is under economic pressure and justifying the sacrifices made in the interest of love.

Story Behind the Song

The couple goes through economic hardship, but the relationship justifies the sacrifices that were made, even though temporary.

Lyrics

We were young, we traded places
you took a job and worked a week every day
Now I wonder how we ever made it, selling what we had or did we give it away.
Love is all I wanted from you
Love is all I wanted us to do, yeah
And to have you, when I had you.
We broke down, went to the county.
Got some help and stood in line for hours.
a 10 cent meal, a cup of coffee,
and we thanked God that this love was still ours.
Love is all I wanted from you
Love is all I wanted us to do, yeah
And to have you, when I had you.
Life is no more than a book of torn out pages.
Some are ripped out and some just fall away.
Love is all I wanted from you
Love is all I wanted us to do, yeah, and to have you.
