*Love Gets Me All The Time*


 Trisha Barrek Hopkins


Love gets me all the time

It never fails

No this isn't a line

To make you believe me I'll walk on nails


Once I decide I'm going to be alone

Be all by myself and cry

Once I decide I'm making my heart all stone 

Wishing that I could die


Love came around

And changes everything 

It pops up on me without a sound 

And God...Love he decides to bring 


It's charming

It's sweet

And so alarming

No one can beat

Love never seems to be harming 


Love just pops up one day 

Takes away the rain

Shocks me to the point 

I don't know what to say 

Love even takes away my throbbing pain


I don't know what I'm going to do 

But I'm very greatful

That love can be to me 

So true

And to treat me like I'm no fool
