​All She Wanted Is Love

This song is by Mark Heard and appears on the album Dry Bones Dance (1990).

Original video
He tried to open her eyes to the big wide world
He was teaching her feelings that can't be taught
Between his art museums and his politics
He left her somewhere in a tangled thought
And when he calls she don't answer
When he comes 'round she's not home
She bears another kind of burden
She's got a mind of her own
Hey-all she wanted was love

He could smother her days in word bouquets
And genuine valentine rhetoric
He could read her mind like a manuscript
And never notice her heart in-between the lines

And when he calls she don't answer
When he comes 'round she's not home
She bears another kind of burden
She's got a life of her own
Hey-all she wanted was love

He would be holding her hand they would save the world
Another sacrifice for another cause
And another cause and a hundred more
But a war's a war and a girl's a girl

And when he calls she don't answer
When he comes 'round she's not home
She bears another kind of burden
She's got a soul of her own
