There are somethings you pray in your prayers
You can't sing in your songs
Like the dreams that lovers share
When their resting in the promise
Of a love that lasts
Though it leads them on
To walk a steeper path
So sometimes you pray
And sometimes you sing
And when you love
You thank the Lord for everything

Yeah when you love, you are gonna to find peace
Yeah when you love, you'll have a new song to sing
Yeah when you love, you are gonna break free
From the world and your heart will rise above
When you love

And there's a rest you find in work
You can't get out of sleep
There's a healing that may hurt
There's a war that must be waged for peace
It don't come ready made
And if you wanna be free
You must become a slave
So sometimes you work
And sometimes your rest
And when you love it all works out for the best


So times will always be good
Even when times get hard
And when you love you get to thank the Lord

Chorus (twice)

And it goes on and on and on and on.and on and on...

When you love
When you love
It goes on and on and on and on and on...
When you love
It goes on and on and on and on and on......

From Mitch:
This is my version of the Rich Mullins song "When You Love" that he recorded on his second album. Rich and I had talked about rewriting and reworking the song and putting it on my first record. We never got around to doing that. But, about six months after the wreck, I went ahead and did it. I loved the lyric and the overall sentiment of the song and I added a Chorus and a bridge. I think the song is saying: "our loving, as God created us to love, is the ultimate. Loving seems like such a simple act, yet when we love, miracles happen.
