Two young people without a thing
Say some vows and spread their wings
Settle down with just what they need
Livin' on love

She don't care 'bout what's in style
She just likes the way he smiles
It takes more than marble and tile
Livin' on love

Livin' on love, buyin' on time
Without somebody nothin' ain't worth a dime
Just like an old fashioned story book rhyme
Livin' on love
It sounds simple that's what you're thinkin'
But love can walk through fire without blinkin'
It doesn't take much when you get enough
Livin' on love

Two old people without a thing
Children gone but still they sing
Side by side in that front porch swing
Livin' on love
He can't see anymore
And she can barely sweep the floor
Hand in hand they'll walk through that door
Just livin' on love

Livin' on love, buyin' on time
Without somebody nothin' ain't worth a dime
Just like an old fashioned story book rhyme
Livin' on love
It sounds simple that's what you're thinkin'
But love can walk through fire without blinkin'
It doesn't take much when you get enough
Livin' on love

Livin' on love, buyin' on time
Without somebody nothin' ain't worth a dime
Just like an old fashioned story book rhyme
Livin' on love
It sounds simple that's what you're thinkin'
But love can walk through fire without blinkin'
It doesn't take much when you get enough
Livin' on love

No, it doesn't take much when you get enough
Livin' on love

    This song makes ya stop and think. It brings out a lot of meaning. Every girl only hopes her guy loves her this much. I know i couldn't have come this far without my guy having a lot of faith & love in me. You know who you are honey. I love you. Thank you for having so much faith & love in me. Can't live without you.

    alan jackson is one of the all time greatest song writers i have heard... this song reminds me so much of my fiance who now has to under go brain surgery... since they day we met we both have fallin in love with each other day after day... ill give my last breath for her, i just caint imagine not having her at my side... she was diagnosed back in 2009 with Moyamoya ( a rare genetic disease) that causes her to have TIA's... she just recently has 2 TIA's... they want to re route two of her main brain arteries to the top of her brain to help get oxygen to the brain... while i was in the hospital next to her bed for 120 hours ( 5 days) straight, never left her side... the song Livin on Love just popped into my head... i was scared i was gonna lose her there, now she is home with me and is gettin ready but is scared as well to have this operation done... please pray for me and her and hope we both can make it thru this...
