"Love Land" as written by and Douglas/thibadeaux....
Wasn't wearing a wedding dress in a Vegas wedding chapel
They were herding us in and out of there like we were cattle
Not exactly the fairy tale that I had planned
But mama said, 'aren't you supposed to get married, girl
Before you bring a baby in this world?'
And what could I say but 'yes, ma'am'?

And I called her from that chapel in Love Land
I said, 'I really love this man.'
Love Land

Seemed like a lifetime driving from Vegas to Oklahoma
If you're allowed a number of mistakes in life, maybe I've filled my quota
They called it a reception, saying we did the right thing
And they smiled their broken smiles
Said, 'who needs to walk down the aisle?'
And I showed off my wedding ring

And we walked away hand in hand to Love Land
Oh, how I love this man
Love Land

Amazing all the progress we've made since the days of Thomas Edison
Still only God gives life in spite of modern medicine
Doctor's voices whispered, 'we did all that we could do
But your baby wasn't strong enough
To make it the whole nine months.'
And as my world broke in two
He said, 'I'll carry you through to Love Land.'

For the longest time I blamed myself
Thought I was paying for my mistakes
But we tried again
Now we're watchin' him blow three candles out
He's daddy's little man
And only God could have planned
The steps I've taken
That led me to where I am
Love Land

Anywhere you hold my hand
Is Love Land

    General CommentThe best song off Martina's latest album "Waking up Laughing". This is such a beautiful song, and I think it it fairly self-exploray. A song about hope and redeption.

    General CommentThis is my fav on Martina's album. It shows that redemption is possible. That love conqours all. "Still only God gives life in spite of modern medicine" is such a profound but true statement. She felt she was paying the price for her past sins when really Jesus paid the price all those years ago on the cross. Nobody know's why God had planned by the Girl not having the baby. But then we find out she has a boy who is just three.
