about

Lately, I’ve felt our generation has watered down the definition of love. There used to be a time where there was so much weight in the phrase, “I love you.” There was a seriousness about commitment. The generations before took love and relationships so seriously. I feel like we’ve lost that. “Distant are those days” as they say. I’ve always looked up to the way my parents and their parents treated love. Now, we are so reliant on Facebook statuses and how our culture defines love. We toss around those three words and it continues to lose its value. I just wish we would bring it back to where it used to be.

lyrics

Throwback Love

verse 1//
My father always said that love was putting all her needs before mine
He was right
But my generation views it very differently than he and his time
We’ve lost sight

pre-chorus//
But I'm finding out now
Maybe we've watered love down
Used to matter where we were
Used to mean every word

chorus//
But distant are the days
Three words had some weight
Bring me back that throwback love
I know I may be young
But I can't be the only one
Asking for that throwback love

verse 2//
My mother used to say, back in the day, that men would actually try
No lie
If chivalry is dead then someone come and breathe in new life.
Maybe I

pre-chorus//
But I'm finding out now
Maybe we've watered love down
Used to matter where we were
Used to mean every word
But

chorus//
distant are the days
Three words had some weight
Bring me back that throwback love
I know I may be young
But I can't be the only one
asking for that throwback love

Live through memories
Of how it used to be
Bring me back that throwback love
I pray once this is done
I won't be the only one
asking for that throwback love
