Love is so elusive but it's worth the effort
Once you find the key
Awakening to feel a touch and taste the sweetness
Won't come easily.

So hold it gently in your hand
Or it might slip away into the night
Yes, love is so elusive that it won't return
Once it's out of sight.

Love is like a soft caress a fevered kiss
A flame that burns your mind
A whispered promise telling you that you'll be
Leaving loneliness behind.

A brief look at tomorrow like a dream
Or perhaps an answered prayer
Though love is so elusive there's not doubt
About it once it's really there.

So just reach out and touch it
Watch it grow from just a tiny little seed
Yes, love is so elusive but it's everything
In your life you really need.

--- Instrumental Steel ---

Love is like a little bird that seems
To feel the urge to fly away
Searching for the arms to hold it tenderly
And make it want to stay.

Love is like the petals from a rose
Just a fragile work of art
Yes, love is so elusive but it's most content
When nearest to your heart.

So just reach out and touch it
Watch it grow from just a tiny little seed
Yes, love is so elusive but it's everything
In your life you really need.

Yes, love is so elusive but it's everything
In life you really need...
