"Love Like Crazy"

I am obsessed with this song by Lee Brice. Here are the lyrics:

They called them crazy when they started out
Said seventeen's too young to know what loves about
They've been together fifty-eight years now
That’s crazy

He brought home sixty-seven bucks a week
He bought a little 2 bedroom house on Maple Street
Where she blessed him with six more mouths to feed
Yea that’s crazy

Just ask him how he did it; he'll say pull up a seat
It'll only take a minute, to tell you everything
Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I Love You
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin' knees get lazy
And love like crazy

They called him crazy when he quit his job
Said them home computers, boy they'll never take off
He sold his one man shop to Microsoft
They paid like crazy

Just ask him how he made it
He'll tell you faith and sweat
And the heart of a faithful woman,
Who never let him forget

Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I Love You
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy

Always treat your woman like a lady
Never get to old to call her baby
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy

They called him crazy when they started out
They've been together fifty-eight years now

Aint that crazy?

Songs like this are why I love country music. The story. The wise words. The catchy tune. What song are you obsessed with lately?

Oh I LOVE this song it's one of my favorites and I ALWAYS turn it up!! The other one right now that I can only listen to sometimes because it tends to make me cry EVERY time is Bucky Covington's A Father's Love.

I absolutely love this song! I'm thinking about creating something with the chorus to hang in my home because I think it is kind of like a family or personal mission statement... at the very least, a good reminder on how to live well.

I love this song.

Our station has been playing it for 48 weeks and it's just now hitting me how much I love it.

Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I Love You.

That's my favorite line. That's exactly what I want.

I love this song too! I also currently have Martina McBride's 'Wrong Baby Wrong' and 'Lover, Lover' stuck in my head. And, I hate to admit it, but I really like the 'I Pray for You' song too. bwah! ;)

This is completely lame... but the some "We are the Champions" has been running through my head NONSTOP for a couple weeks now. Call it an unintentional obsession! Just when I think I've forgotten it, my hubby will start humming it and it's back again!

Totally off base - but I can't get "sittin on the dock of the bay" out of my head.

Course it reminds me to take life slower...recognize the good stuff out there!
