Nothing beats love songs when it comes to inspiring romance.

Have you ever wondered why certain love songs are your favorites over others?

Often, what sets music above the rest is 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.

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.

Honestly shared thoughts about the emotions and feelings associated with being in love 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 lyrics of the songs listed below can easily inspire the heights of romantic feelings in many of our own lives.
