Something That We Do


Songwriters: Clint Black, Skip Ewing
Performer: Clint Black
Category: Country

Clint Black released this song in 1997 on his album Nothin' But the Taillights. It hit number 2 on the Billboard country charts and number 4 on the Canadian country charts.

This is a great song about the true nature of a love that lasts. Clint Black zeroed in on the concept that love isn't something you're "in" but it's something you "do." While the whole wedding ceremony is about two people committing to love each other "for better, for worse," etc., this particular song is a particularly excellent choice for the unity ceremony. The lyrics are vows themselves.

LYRICS

I remember well the day we wed
I can see that picture in my head
I still believe the words we said
Forever will ring true
Love is certain, love is kind
Love is yours and love is mine
But it isn't something that we find
It's something that we do

It's holding tight, lettin' go
It's flying high and laying low
Let your strongest feelings show
And your weakness, too
It's a little and a lot to ask
An endless and a welcome task
Love isn't something that we have
It's something that we do

We help to make each other all that we can be
Though we can find our strength and inspiration independently
The way we work together is what sets our love apart
So closely that you can't tell where I end and where you start

It gives me heart remembering how
We started with a simple vow
There's so much to look back on now
Still it feels brand-new
We're on a road that has no end
And each day we begin again
Love's not just something that we're in
It's something that we do

We help to make each other all that we can be
Though we can find our strength and inspiration independently
The way we work together is what sets our love apart
So closely that you can't tell where I end and where you start

Love is wide, love is long
Love is deep and love is strong
Love is why I love this song
And I hope you love it too
I remember well the day we wed
I can see that picture in my head
Love isn't just those words we said
It's something that we do

There's no request too big or small
We give ourselves, we give our all
Love isn't someplace that we fall
It's something that we do
