​A Thing Called Love

This song is by The Flying Machine and appears on the album The Flying Machine (1969) and on the compilation album Down To Earth With The Flying Machine: The Complete Recordings (2000).

Six foot six stood on the ground
Weighed two hundred and forty-five pounds
He was a giant of a man brought down to his knees by love

He was the kind of man who'd gamble on luck
Look you in the eye and never back up
But I saw him crying like a little whipped pup because of love

Can't see it with your eyes
Hold it in your hand
But like the wind it covers our land
Strong enough to rule the heart of any man
This thing called love

It can pick you up (up)
It can let you down (down)
Take your world turn it all around

Ever since time nothing's ever been found
Stronger than love

Some men are like me they worry and doubt
Trouble their minds day in and day out
Too busy with living to worry about this thing called love

But when I see a mother's tenderness
As she holds her young child to her breast
Then I thank god this world's been blessed by a thing called love

Can't see it with your eyes
Hold it in your hand
But like the wind it covers our land
Strong enough to rule the heart of any man
This thing called love

It can pick you up (up)
It can let you down (down)
Take your world spin it all around

Ever since time nothing's ever been found
Stronger than love

It can pick you up (up)
It can let you down (down)
Take your world spin it all around

Ever since time nothing's ever been found
Stronger than love

Ever since time nothing's ever been found
Stronger than love
