Franklin, Kirk - Real Love Lyrics

Look in my eyes and you will see
The way real love used to be
When the flowers bloomed in the spring time
And happiness was all mine
It's hard to let my feelings show
But I've got to let somebody know
About the love that Jesus has given me
He loosed my shackles and set me free

Is this a dream or is it reality?
Have I finally found someone who loves me?
I just want to know

Have you ever loved somebody
Will you ever love somebody
The way that Jesus loves you


Over and over I ask myself
Could there ever be anyone else

Who can give me so much joy and peace
And make everyday oh so sweet
I searched all over couldn't find one
Til I met His only begotten Son
At first I didn't understand
Until I saw the nailprints in His hand

Is this a dream or is it reality?
Have I finally found someone who loves me?
I just want to know
I just want to know
I just want to know


He loves me [4x's]

Franklin, Kirk Real Love Comments
  1. Trece C

    I LOVE THIS SONG!!! 🤗It brings me to tears when I reminisce and think that I was in my early 20’s and my daughter was under the age of 10 when this became our mother-daughter duo song! ❤️ My husband loved hearing us sing it together around the house and we’ve sung it together at church as well. Boy...what a blessing!!! And where did the time go? It’s gone by so fast! I’m happy to say that I’m almost 49, and I am a thrilled and excited beautiful little girl is all grown up and she’s almost 29, and a WONDERFUL mother! 💝🌻 She’s everything I’d hope she’d be and so much more! AlI can say it that this song is TIMELESS!!! When I think back over my life and think about the goodness of the Lord and ALLLL that He’s done for me... and my family... I just want to say THANK YOU GOD FOR EVERYTHING!!! THANK YOU FOR LOVING US UNCONDITIONALLY!!! SO UNDESERVING...BUT YOU LOVED US IN SPITE OF... AND YOU STILL LOVE US!!! AND JESUS WE LOVE YOU!!!🙏🏾❤️🙏🏾❤️ GLORY BE TO GOD!!! HALLELUJAH!!!🕊Amen
