You Have Been Loved
Lyrics and Meaning


Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
She takes the back road and the lane
Past the school that has not changed
In all this time
She thinks of when the boy was young
All the battles she had won
Just to give him life
Verse 2
That man
She loved that man
For all his life
But now we meet to take him flowers
And only god knows why
Verse 3
For what's the use in pressing palms
When children fade in mother's arms
It's a cruel world, we've so much to lose
And what we have to learn, we rarely choose
Verse 4
So if it's god who took her son
He cannot be the one living in her mind
Verse 5
Take care my love, she said
Don't think that god is dead
Take care my love, she said
Verse 6
You have been loved
Verse 7
If I was weak, forgive me
But I was terrified
You brushed my eyes with angels wings, full of love
The kind that makes devils cry
Verse 8
So these days
My life has changed
And I'll be fine (and I'll be fine)
But she just sits and counts the hours
Searching for her crime
Verse 9
So what's the use in pressing palms
If you won't keep such love from harm
It's a cruel world, you've so much to prove
And heaven help the ones who wait for you
Verse 10
No, I've no daughters, I've no sons
Guess I'm the only one
Living in my life
Verse 11
Take care my love, he said
Don't think that God is dead
Take care my love, he said
Verse 12
You have been loved
