Love You Well (Song) - 7 of 7

My final song for 7in7 is a song for my beautiful bride.

NameChris Mallonee

I ended this week of creativity writing a song for Laura. She has always selflessly supported my dreams and passions. We've had recent conversations about how it feels difficult at times for her to find time for any passions or desires being a mom to two young girls. The "fires that burned can burn again" is a belief that our love won't fade over time and her God-given passions and dreams won't either. Our marriage is a continual journey of letting one another into the deep places of emotion that we walled off before.

This song is also a thank you to her this week for pushing me to make time and space to create songs and confessions during 7in7.

Love You Well

Do you remember the night we met?
And all of the things that we used to plan?
We’d drive in your car until no night was left
Don’t you ever think that I’d forget

Take me to the places of your deepest thoughts
Take me to the places where you’ve walked alone

You’ve always been by my side
at least let me try
to love you well
You’ve always been by my side
so I’m gonna try
to love you well

The fires that burned they can burn again
Your fortress can crumble if you let me in
Let’s drive in your car until no night is left
And dream of the places that we’ve never been

Take me to the places of your deepest thoughts
Take me to the places where you’ve walked alone

You’ve always been by my side
at least let me try
to love you well
You’ve always been by my side
so I’m gonna try
to love you well

Do you remember the night we met?
And all of the things that we used to plan?
The fires that burned they can burn again
Your fortress can crumble if you let me in
Let’s drive in your car until no night is left
And dream of the places that we’ve never been

Take me to the places of your deepest thoughts
Take me to the places where you’ve walked alone

You’ve always been by my side
at least let me try
to love you well
You’ve always been by my side
so I’m gonna try
to love you well
