I never knew the power of a song,
Till I heard the music playin',
The day that momma passed on.

Never knew what innocence was about,
Till the first time I layed eyes on the face,
Of a newborn child.

I never knew love,
No I mean real love,
I never knew that kind of love,
Till this moment with you.

I never understood the meaning of home,
Till I pulled into that old dirt drive,
After being gone too long.

I didn't know what serenity really was,
Till I stopped one day to listen to,
A river gently run.

I never knew love,
No I mean real love,
I never knew that kind of love,
Till this moment with you.

I've known the hunger before tonight,
For other loves.
I felt the yearning,
I felt the fire,
In thier touch.
But this goes deeper,
Than anything I've ever known.
Beyond my heart,
Clear down to my soul.

I never knew what beauty could behold,
Till you looked at me, and I could see,
Forever unfold.
Oh, you made me whole.

I never knew love,
No I mean real love,
I never knew that kind of love,
Till this moment with you.
Till I was loved, by you.

    There is no such thing as a soul mate. There are good and bad matches but love is a choice. We can feel a physical attraction that is very strong but that is exactly what he is saying; "I felt the yearning I've felt the fire, in their touch. This is a deeper love that goes beyond a physical thing. He has been sown the beauty of real love. The choice to take the time and pay attention to the river run and the newborn child and the person that really knows and loves you in a way that goes beyond what you see at a glance.

    The meaning is in the line "no, i mean real love". It's not about just finding someone to marry, it's about finding your soulmate. A soulmate isn't "the hunger", "the yearning" or "the fire", they're the "you made me whole".
