All I every wanted was a love so big
All my heart could carry and as much as I could give
A love that made some kind of sense but beyond all reason
That made me want to be a whole lot better person

Hold on as the very ground
Beneath us starts to shiver and shake
When you love as hard as this
There's bound to be some trembling
Some risk and some mistakes
Something lost and something gained
And Little Earthquakes

Sometimes you get just what you ask for
Sometimes you get what you need
I never knew how much this love could call to me
As right as rain and thunder that rolls across the ground
That can shake you for a moment or bring the walls on down

Hold on as the very ground
Beneath us starts to shiver and shake
When you love as hard as this
There's bound to be some trembling
Some risk and some mistakes
Something lost and something gained
And Little Earthquakes

Wild and deep and elemental, rivers yield and open wide
There maybe no destination but what a glorious ride

Hold on as the very ground
Beneath us starts to shiver and shake
When you love as hard as this
There's bound to be some trembling
Some risk and some mistakes
Something lost and something gained
And Little Earthquakes

So why hold back when big love is what you feel
Why look behind or change your mind or spin your wheels
It's bigger than the both of us and it's wider than the wind
Whole world is in motion, and it's shakin' us again
