The Common Linnets - When Love Was King

When pain didn’t reign and love was king
We could wash our hand of most anything
But I inherited my father’s sin
I was born and raised in the midst of it

Before a preacher spoke those words in red
And holy men would bow their heads
Before I was the man I am
The oldest son of Abraham

The day I drowned in fire and stone
I found out what I’d always known
But I still remember I still see
A heart that trusts a voice that sings
When pain didn’t reign and love was king

My daddy was a gambler a drinking man
Showed his love with the back of his hand
I never saw him smile not a flicker of grace
Think he buried em with mamma in the Tennessee clay

The day I drowned in fire and stone
I found out what I’d always known
But I still remember I still see
A heart that trusts a voice that sings
When pain didn’t reign and love was king

The day I drowned in fire and stone
I found out what I’d always known
But I still remember I still see
A heart that trusts a voice that sings
When pain didn’t reign and love was king

A heart that trusts a voice that sings
When pain didn’t reign and love was king
