Fall in Love Again

One of my blogging friends, Robyn at Love vs. Goliath wrote this post the other day about investing in her relationship with her husband.  These two (and her kids) tell an amazing love story about being reunited after a long immigration battle. I’d encourage you to visit the site and poke around, it’s very interesting and uplifting.

Her post reminded me that it is so important to make time for your spouse or partner, to find time away from kids and jobs and all the stressful and time-consuming things that envelope our lives, and find ways to rekindle those incredible feelings that people feel when they first start falling in love. My wife preaches this to me sometimes, and while I have to admit she is pretty good at it, frankly, me being a guy and all… I am not always very good at it.

Reading Robyn’s post hit home for me and I sat down and wrote a little song. I’m not much for New Year’s Resolutions, but perhaps this year I’ll try to make more time for my relationship with my amazing wife.

You can listen to the song on Grooveshark here:  Fall in Love Again

and here are the words:

Baby, let’s fall in love again.
Head over heels in love again.
It’s much too easy just being in love with you.
I want to fall in love again.

Baby, let’s fall in love again.
Head over heels in love again.
It’s not enough just being in love with you.
I want to fall in love again.

Let’s climb to the roof and stare at the sky and watch shooting stars go by.
Let’s jump in the car and go for a drive with nowhere to go in mind.
Let’s lie in the sand, grab hold of my hand and know that the world is right.
Baby, let’s feel that way again.

Baby, let’s fall in love again.
Head over heels in love again.
It’s much too easy just being in love with you.
I want to fall in love again.

I’m looking forward to reading what you all have to say this year. Wishing you a happy, healthy 2012!

  1. iPhones don’t support GrooveShark, so you know I’m crying in my car because I can’t hear this! 😦 That said, your message is a solid one, and I’ll head over to your blogging friend to see what inspired you.

    Happy New Year: to you and all the women in your life!

  2. Steve, this song is very beautiful. It captures the idea, simply and soundly, of wanting that ‘falling’ in love feeling that began the bond between two people. I did see a documentary some years back, that reported most long-term couples do fall in love with each other over and over again, 5 or 6 times during a lifetime of marriage. That was comforting to realize; you can fall out of love, and back in love – just give that love a chance!

  3. The Car Guy and I just celebrated our 42nd Wedding Anniversary. I would have to agree that love is something that can’t be taken for granted. It is like the backyard bonfire – you have to keep feeding it, or it dies. In my case, chocolate is a good fuel…

  4. Wow, Steve, what a surprise! I am so glad my article inspired you, for this a wonderful. You were doing this why we were having our water therapy!

    I think your wife is one very lucky lady!
