Love Is Made That Way (Note: Click song titles for lyrics)

(performed by Andi Morici)
written by Andi Morici & Tom Sparks
You’re too young, I guess that I should not expect
Your gentle heart to understand what it really takes to make a man.
He said that he loved you and then he took and showed you
In the backseat of a minivan; the boy pretends to be a man.

Now you hug your pillow, crying tears all by yourself,
No, that ain’t love, that ain’t love.

‘Cause love is patient, love is kind, love protects and grows in time,
When we fail, love’s designed to defend us.
Love endures when there is pain, love still gives when there’s no gain,
Love won’t wither in the hot sun of the day…no
Love is made that way; love is made that way.

You never dreamed today that your life would be this way,
You’re struggling with a womanhood that came before you thought it should.
You told yourself he’d stay and then you gave yourself away,
The feelings that he said were strong, turned out they didn’t last that long.

And now you hug your pillow, crying tears all by yourself,
No, that ain’t love, that ain’t love.

‘Cause love is patient, love is kind, love protects and grows in time,
When we fail, love’s designed to defend us.
Love endures when there is pain, love still gives when there’s no gain,
Love won’t wither in the hot sun of the day…no
Love is made that way; love is made that way.

So be patient and take your time and read between the lines,
If it ain’t love, the price will be too high; will be too high.

‘Cause love is patient, love is kind, love protects and grows in time,
When we fail, love’s designed to defend us.
Love endures when there is pain, love still gives when there’s no gain,
Love won’t wither in the hot sun of the day…oh
Love is made that way; love is made that way;
Love is made that way.
