Have you ever wondered why certain love songs are your favorites over others? Often, what sets some music above the rest are the love song lyrics that speak to your very soul.

The words that make up a song's meaning are such an important factor when it comes to those you want to hear on repeat, so much so that you're quick to add them to your most heavily rotated playlists.

And depending on what you're in the mood for, you're most likely to choose songs that help you express or get through a certain feeling as you sing along, especially song lyrics about love

That's why love songs are such a popular genre of music — and it's also why romantic song lyrics often contain some of the best love quotes of all time.

Probably one of the greatest love songs would be "Make you feel my love" by Bob Dylan (and Adele's cover of that song). It's such a loving song and you can feel the love song lyrics deep in your soul.

There are lots of other songs you can use to tell someone you love them because love is a universal feeling and singer-songwriters throughout time have amassed an array of songs for us to relate to. 

The most touching songs are relatable through shared thoughts about the emotions and feelings associated with being in love. Love song lyrics are something that most everyone enjoys hearing, even when (or maybe especially when) they aren't so easy to express yourself.

Knowing an artist out there gets you and your quirks and has captured them in your favorite music is an amazing feeling only the very best songs capture. And the song lyrics about love listed below can easily inspire the heights of romantic feelings in many of our own lives.
