Straightforward Love Song

This is supposed to be a straightforward love song
Direct and raw and dedicated right to you
This is composed with all that’s going on within me
Everything I can say and all that I can do

You see I want to find new words, new ways
To say what's been known before
Declarations to all that’s going on in the core

What's a cold heart?
What’s that way to sharing?
Caught up again in a web of the self that’s finespun?
Well this is supposed to be a straightforward love song
Connecting for what’s special
That big hearted fun

But you know there’s a terror to life
And lovers live on the brink
The anti romantic’s worked out how you think

But in that warm heart
That gentle place of affection
Come here my love and be near
'Cause this is supposed to be a straightforward love song
Direct and raw, honest and clear

Oh but I know we get lost
Overtaken, erratic, confused
Actions weigh heavy when instincts abused

So just yield now
Reflect on that light on the raindrops
See rose leaves twinkle resplendent in the sun
'Cause this is supposed to be a straightforward love song

Anticipated
Created
We love it sometimes
We might even hate it
Can’t hide those thoughts anymore
They’ve got to be stated
And tough times can be sore
Tolerate it
Dig down to the core
Celebrate it
 And sing on and on
A straightforward love song
