Andrew Peterson - Love Is A Good Thing Lyrics

It knocked me down, it dragged me out, it left me there for dead
It took all the freedom I wanted and gave me something else instead
It blew my mind, it bled me dry, it hit me like a long goodbye
And nobody here knows better than I that it's a good thing

Love is a good thing
It'll fall like rain on your parade
Laugh at the plans that you tried to make
It'll wear you down till your heart just breaks
And it's a good thing
Love is a good thing

It'll wake you up in the middle of the night, it'll take just a little too much
It'll burn you like a cinder till you're tender to the touch
It'll chase you down, and swallow you whole, it'll make your blood run hot and cold
Like a thief in the night it'll steal your soul, and that's a good thing
Love is a good thing

It'll follow you down to the ruin of your great divide
Open the wounds that you tried to hide
And there in the rubble of the heart that died
You'll find a good thing
Cause love is a good thing
Oh love is a good thing

Ooo, take cover
Ooo, the end is near
Ooo, take cover
But do not fear
Do not fear

Cause it'll break your will, it'll change your mind
Loose all the chains of the ties that bind
If you're lucky you'll never make it out alive, and that's a good thing
Love is a good thing

It can hurt like a blast from a hand grenade
When all that used to matter is blown away
There in the middle of the mess it made you'll find a good thing
Yes, it's worth every penny of the price you pay. It's a good thing

Love is a good thing (oo, take cover)
Love is a good thing (oo, the end is near)
Oh love is a good thing (oo, take cover)
Do not fear

    I pray you're still "out there" somewhere 'cuz I wanted to tell you how much I ALSO am touched by Andrew Peterson's music. I have NEVER heard Christian music -- whether it's the old-time hymns or new Christian 'contemporary' -- that has moved me and spoken to my soul like Andrew's does.
    The first song of his that I ever heard was Is He Worthy. It's a beautiful song, but when I searched for the song in my Amazon Music Library I found SO MUCH MORE, spiritually speaking. Right now, as I am typing this, I am listening to a playlist I have created on Amazon that includes The Prologue, Resurrection Volume 1, and Resurrection Volume 2. To listen to all of the songs on those albums takes a little over an hour and a half, and I can put the playlist on "Repeat" and listen to it for hours. And I always have a box of Kleenex next to me!
    The Lord has spoken to me and comforted me SO Much through these beautiful songs of praise and worship. And I'm wanting to share with others, which is how I ended up here. I just caught a glimpse of what you had written in the Description box (which is rather strange 'cuz I never pay attention to what's written in D-boxes on videos). It is so heartwarming to know that there is someone else that is as touched by something as I am.
    Thank you for posting this song WITH THE LYRICS. I'm sharing it with several people and it always helps a first-time listener to be able to follow the words.
    God bless, 4Him4Ever❤
