I always wanted to write a song
For the love of my life
And now I've met him
I guess this is how it goes

Is it too soon to say
That you're the only one who ever stood beside me?
Too soon to say
That you're the only one who never meant to let me down?
Babe, is it prophecy or just impatience?

I'm not being brave or stupid if I were to challenge heartache
I know we're made as one, but god broke us apart at creation day
But it's ok
I dreamed of you while I was waiting

But it's not enough to say
That I am everything I'm meant to be
If only you are next to me
The world would just obey
While I defy the stars to be with you forever
Find some way to tell you

I need a new word for love
I need a new word for love
I need a new word for love
I need a new word for love

'Cause love seems so underrated
Love is such an understatement
Love is not as lovely as you

Love is blind, you take my eyes
'Cause I ain't gonna need them
Take my heart, too
Without you here it's never beating anyway

Just feeling the words the poets never got to say
Far and wide I search for words, the dictionary failed me
Trying to describe simple magnitude of what I feel for you
For moments, for lifetimes, hold you like you're my lifeline, baby

But it's not enough to say
That I am everything I'm meant to be
If only you are next to me
The world would just obey
While I defy the stars to be with you forever
Find some way to tell you

I need a new word for love
I need a new word for love
I need a new word for love
I need a new word for love

'Cause love seems so underrated
Love is such an understatement
Love is not as lovely as you

I need a new word for love
I need a new word for love
I need a new word for love
I need a new word for love

'Cause love seems so underrated
Love is such an understatement
Love is not as lovely as you

A New Word For Love Lyrics
