Lyrics Breakdown

Let the world stop turning
Let the sun stop burning
Let them tell me love’s not worth going through
If it all falls apart
I will know deep in my heart
The only dream that mattered had come true
In this life, I was loved by you

Love songs are published because of love. Love is felt by everybody. It can be our love for God, country, family, friends, and someone special. Talking about love for someone special, have you already experienced falling in love? If yes, then you still probably know who was your first love was?

That is because we will never forget the first time we fell in love.
