How Many Love Songs

This song was inspired for all of us who’ve cycled through a relationship or two…. My dear friends Greg Connor and Mark Lofgren of the infamous MN Coffee Table helped bring it to life with Greg on Banjo and Mark on Lead Guitar. Both of them added their lovely voices - recorded around Greg’s basement studio coffee table… I was also inspired by Loretta Lynn on this one, so I hope some of her spirit comes through!

How Many Love Songs

Chorus
How many love songs
Can one girl write?
How many love songs
Can one heart stand?
How many beginnings
That too quickly end?
How many love songs
Till my heart mends?

Verse One
They walk right in
And charm with their stories
They take your hand
And make you feel safe
They kiss your lips
With passion and glory
Too bad for you
It’s all a big fake

Repeat Chorus

Verse Two
We’ve all been there
Looking out to the future
We decide that they’re
Just what we need
We’re still surprised
When it turns into torture
Too bad for you
They’re toxic as a weed

Repeat Chorus

Not bad for taking the Summer off and catching up with each other after almost 3 months.
