Meaning behind the song
The song is an explanation of how love, when it comes to you, can be a strong feeling that you cannot control. It is unexplainable, but you cannot help but fall deep and hard.
This is true with real events that happened in their life. Throughout the 1990s, Amy Grant and Vince Gill maintained a close friendship. Following Grant’s divorce from her husband Gary Chapman in 1999 and Gill’s divorce in 1998, they tied the knot a year later, solidifying the legacy of “House of Love” as the pivotal moment where their friendship blossomed into something more.
