Your love is the very air that I breathe.
Ugh! So dramatic!
Okay, so that sort of thing may have worked, sounded good, for poetry or song lyrics of some kind. As a writer, I get that. I am just capping off
this month dedicated to all things related to love and relationships
with a way out of the heartbreak that can sometimes result when something comes to an end, as these things seem to.
It is not me, Tina Turner, or Bryan Adams minimizing what love is, what it means, or how it feels when it is gone. It’s just an offering of hope, at least that’s how I see it.
When the feeling is ended
There ain’t no use pretending
Don’t you worry, it’s only love
When your world has been shattered
Ain’t nothing else matters
It ain’t over, it’s only love And that’s all
When your heart has been broken
Hard words have been spoken
It ain’t easy, but it’s only love
And if your life ain’t worth living
And you’re ready to give in
Just remember that it’s only love Yeah, that’s all
You can live without the aggravation
You gotta want to win, you gotta want to win
You keep looking back in desperation
Over and over and over again
SONGWRITERS JAMES, MARK/TYRELL, STEVE
I love the force of this song, the impact it has on me when I hear it, no matter how many times that might be.
I feel better after listening. It gives me that little extra bit of a push to focus and look ahead, not behind me.
