**50% of proceeds go to Love on Every Billboard, an organization spreading the simple message of LOVE all over the world.

This song was written especially for, recorded, and produced with Love on Every Billboard.

**Love on Every Billboard's Story**

When you get quiet and connect with nature, your soul starts to speak to you with little nudges of "wouldn't it be cool if...?"

This is exactly how Love on Every Billboard came to be. John Pogachar was persistently doing the inner work and a question emerged: "wouldn't it be amazing to buy a billboard without it needing to sell or promote anything except for love?"

The idea quickly gained momentum and multiplied from one billboard to five all around Spokane, Washington, and is now opening to a worldwide audience to join in the vision of having messages of truth all around us.

lyrics

**Lyrics**
She was screeching out of Spokane
Worries on her mind
Can’t stop thinking about what she left behind
A job, a family, and all she’s ever known
But the bruises and cuts mean she can’t call it a home

And now she’s on the road
Not sure what she’s driving towards
She said, “I’m waiting on a sign from above”
She looked up and the billboard said “Love”

[chorus]
Love…
That’s all you need to know today, all the rest is in the way
Love…
Just follow that sign it’ll lead you home every time

[verse 2]

He was heading back to Detroit
Probably been a year
Since the words he could not take back were ringing in his ears
He’s looking for forgiveness he knows he may not find
Oh the past is ruthless no matter the time

Now he’s on the road
Not sure what he’s driving towards
Screams out loud “I need a sign from above”
He looked up and the billboard said “Love”

[chorus]

[Bridge]
When you’re trying to find your way
Just imagine if every billboard would say
Love…

[Verse 3]

Not a dry eye in Pittsburgh
Heavy is the heart
Of a city and a nation pulling farther apart
And we’re bleeding in the Temple
We’re screaming in the streets
Lord, where is the mercy you promised there’d by

Cause we’re out here on this road
Not sure what we’re driving towards
Where do we look when there’s no light from above?
But the billboard says…
[chorus]
