Popularized by Elvis Presley in 1962, this song is usually associated only with romantic love. For some of us it also expresses our love for God. As the song puts it, Wise men say, only fools rush in, but I can't help falling in love with You.

Wise men say
Only fools rush in
But I can't help
Falling in love with you

Wise men say
Only fools rush in
But I can't help
Falling in love with you

Shall I stay
Would it be a sin
If I can't help
Falling in love with you

As a river flows
Gently to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things were meant to be

Take my hand
Take my whole life too
Cause I can't help
Falling in love with you

As a river flows
Gently to the sea
Darling so we go
Some things were meant to be

Take my hand
Take my whole life too
Cause I can't help
Falling in love with you

Oh I can't help
Falling in love with you
