That Kind Of Love (lyrics) – by Pierce Pettis

Can’t be bought or sold or faked…
   That kind of Love.
It always gives itself away,
   That kind of Love.
Wiser than the wisest sage,
   It’s innocence makes me ashamed,
‘Til I’m not sure I can take
   That kind of Love.

Pride and hatred cannot stand
   That kind of love.
Greater love hath no man
   Than that kind of Love.
It won’t be kept unto itself.
   It spreads its charm, it casts its spell
‘Til no one’s safe this side of hell
   From That kind of Love.

Love, rejected and ignored,
Held in chains, behind closed doors.
Stuff of legend and of songs..
and, deep down, everybody longs
   For That kind of Love . . . Oh, That kind of Love!

Some people never know
   That kind of Love.
Though it only takes a child to show
   That kind of Love.
Widows smile and strong men weep
   and Little ones play at its feet.
The deaf can hear, the blind can see
   That kind of Love.

Love triumphant. Love on fire.
Love that humbles and inspires.
Love that does not hesitate,
With No conditions, No restraints…
   That kind of Love . . . Oh, That kind of Love!

How could anyone deny
   That kind of Love?
Knowing every heart is measured by
    That kind of Love.
Even stars fall from the sky.
   Everything will fall in time.
Except those things that cannot die
   That kind of Love.

Oh, may you be remembered by
   That kind of Love.
