Lyrics

©J Kirby Heard (BMI)

Well, the songs have all been written
The words already spoke
The pictures all been painted
The memories have been evoked

You know they say there’s nothing new now
That it’s all been done before
No more music, art or poems
Not much for this troubadour

I just want to write a love song
To let the world know how I feel
Can’t find the words to say 
What my heart is telling me

I’d hang the moon & the stars for you, dear,
If they weren’t already there
You loved me from the very start
And then you won my heart so fair

The way your eyes light up around me
Makes the diamonds lose their shine
Like they’re jealous of your glow
The heart you’re holding there is mine

I just want to write a love song
To let the world know how I feel
Can’t find the words to say what
My heart is telling me

Yes, I just want to write a love song
That I can sing for you
It may not be the first one
But to me it’s all brand new

It may not be the first one
But from my heart it’s true
