BILL ANDERSON lyrics - Love Is A Fragile Thing

BILL ANDERSON
"Love Is A Fragile Thing"

My mama and daddy
Were celebrating their anniversary
In all their years together
I'd never seen them disagree.

I said mama what's your secret
Daddy tell me the truth
They laid a little wisdom on me
That I've carried ever since my youth.

If you hold on to love too tight
It'll crumble and crack
If you hold on to love too loosely
It'll fly away and won't come back.

Love has a mind of it's own
It'll dance like a kite on a string
For something that can be so strong
Love is a fragile thing.
Love sure is a fragile thing.

They said your mama and your daddy ain't perfect son
We made our share of mistakes
But we never go to bed when either one's mad
No matter how long it takes.

We sit up and talk things over
Till we work everything out
We kiss goodnight and in the morning
We've forgotten what we argued about.

If you hold on to love too tight
It'll crumble and crack
If you hold on to love too loosely
It'll fly away and won't come back.

True love is a treasure
Treat it like it is
And then one day
You can say to your own kids...
