More on a theme of lyrics that really describe love to me. Of course this is from a depressing love song, but most of my favorites are. Maybe just because they ring of sincerity and the positive ones tend to get sappy?
From the Mavericks song "In My Dreams":
You are the dream I live with
You are the wish I made
The name I always whisper
In every prayer I pray
Here are some lyrics from "The Air That I Breathe". I remember when this first came out, but the Mavericks do a great cover it on the same album as the aforementioned song:
Sometimes all I need is the air I breathe and to love you.
P.S. Don't tell anyone I'm quoting country music again.
