Nothing Fancy - Dave Barnes





♫There's nothing fancy bout the way I love you,
There's nothing you could not find in any other man.
There's nothing fancy bout the way I love you,
But I love you as hard as I can.

There's no good reason for the way you love me,
But you're my walking dream come true.
There's no good reason for the way you love me,
But I thank God that you do.

I don't know the perfect conversation,
I don't know the way to turn a head,
I don't know the perfect way to prove my love,
But I know I'll love you till I'm dead.

There's nothing fancy bout the way I love you,
It's as simple as the stars in the sky, and the blue in the sea.
There's nothing fancy bout the way I love you,
But it sure is fancy how you love me.♫


(The lyrics aren't spectacular. The sentiment is lovely and the melody makes it a winner. As a songwriter, Barnes has both written and co-written songs for Marc Broussard, Bebo Norman, Matt Wertz, Andrew Ripp, Billy Currington, and many other singers. I'm not surprised about the Matt Wertz connection, as both artists flip my heart the same way. Broussard surprises me, but no doubt it was Gavin's Song, and Jeremiah's Prayer if I were to hazard a guess. Ahhh yes...just Googled. Gavin's song co-written with Dave Barnes. Barne's has a recognizable style. Humble. Connected. Earthy. I'm a huge fan.)

  1. I've known someone who loved me like that...but I had to be alone...I like this, I like simplicity, and sometimes I hate myself :)

  2. Lorraine - I understand that need for solitude. I have to balance it with my need to connect.

    Travis - Yup. True dat!

  4. Manik, that was beautiful! Thank you. Each song is such a gift, especially since it says so much about the sender! I love indian food, so if I can ever learn to cook it, an appropriate playlist is essential!
