Just Because
Mary Chapin Carpenter
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
Nothin' felt so easy, or so right?
And I think of you like the others do,
Wonderin' 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 lies,
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 knowin' why
Except you had to try
Just because....?

And everyday that passes now, I spose I'm gettin' older;
Why sir 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
And make you want to reach out once again?
And I touch you when I need a friend,
Or just a small reminder, that I haven't grown too cold to feel
You cannot treat my armour
Have you ever loved, whether right or wrong?
Have you ever loved someone, just because?
Have you ever loved someone
Just because
