​I Want A Love Like That

This song is by Judy Rodman and appears on the album A Place Called Love (1987).

That old man was married
They fought like dogs and cats
Everybody wondered
How long could it last?
Fifty years of living
Neither one of them packed their bags
Lately he's been missing the way she used to nag

I want a love like that
I want a love like that
I want a love like that
A love like that

This old dog remembers when he owned the world
Chasing after fenders while his master chased the girls
Now the two of them sit here
Each pretending the other's old
Each of them defending the world they used to know

I want a love like that
I want a love like that
I want a love like that
A love like that

That girl lost her wonder
So she waited on a train
Listening for the thunder
When somebody called her name
Dressed in tattered sneaker
And hardly tall enough to reach her knees
Threw his arms around her crying
Mama, please don't leave

I want a love like that
I want a love like that
I want a love like that
A love like that

Rivers feed the ocean
Stars caress the sky
The wind is just a motion
To help the sparrows fly
I know you wanted to question
What my hearts has been searching for
I saw forever once when the ocean kissed the shore

I want a love like that
I want a love like that
I want a love like that
A love like that
I want a love like that
