Carpenter, Mary Chapin - Just Because Lyrics




Have you ever loved someone you knew nothing of
Except you'd seen the light inside their eyes
Have you ever loved someone just because
Nothing felt so easy or so right

And I think of you like the others do
Wondering if you think of me
And if you do, if you really do
Who is it that you see

Have you ever loved
Whether right or wrong
Have you ever loved someone
Just because

Have you ever tried to speak the truth instead of lie
When it seemed you had everything to lose
Have you ever tried to stand your ground instead of hide
When staying only made you look a fool

And I stayed by you though I think I knew
It wouldn't change a thing
Changes come to hearts with ease
But they come so hard to me
Have you ever tried to make it last, not knowing why
Except you had to try
Just because

And every day that passes now, I s'pose I'm getting older
Wiser with the things I've done
But I hope I don't grow colder

And now I see the ones, who've lost so much
They swear they're done
With love and all the chance it brings for pain
But have you ever touched, and by itself it was enough
To make you want to reach out once again

And I'll touch you when I need a friend
Or just a small reminder
That I haven't grown too cold to feel
You penetrate my armor

Have you ever loved
Whether right or wrong
Have you ever loved someone
Just because
Have you ever loved someone
Just because

    Have you ever loved someone you knew nothing of
    Except you'd seen the light inside their eyes
    Have you ever loved someone just because
    Nothing felt so easy or so right

    And I think of you like the others do
    Wondering if you think of me
    And if you do, if you really do
    Who is it that you see

    Have you ever loved
    Whether right or wrong
    Have you ever loved someone
    Just because

    Have you ever tried to speak the truth instead of lie
    When it seemed you had everything to lose
    Have you ever tried to stand your ground instead of hide
    When staying only made you look a fool

    And I stayed by you though I think I knew
    It wouldn't change a thing
    Changes come to hearts with ease
    But they come so hard to me
    Have you ever tried to make it last, not knowing why
    Except you had to try
    Just because

    And every day that passes now, I s'pose I'm getting older
    Wiser with the things I've done
    But I hope I don't grow colder

    And now I see the ones, who've lost too much
    They swear they're done
    With love and all the chance it brings for pain
    But have you ever touched, and by itself it was enough
    To make you want to reach out once again

    And I'll touch you when I need a friend
    Or just a small reminder
    That I haven't grown too cold to feel
    You penetrate my armor

    Have you ever loved
    Whether right or wrong
    Have you ever loved someone
    Just because
    Have you ever loved someone
    Just because
