I love love songs. I love the idea that you can be so moved by how you feel about someone or something that you have to write it and release it. Even more, I love that love songs pull out our emotions about ourselves and the things in our environment.This being said, I listen to them almost constantly.

Yesterday, I was listening to some music, and a song began to play. From the first moment I heard this song, I thought of my dear friend. I was always cautious of saying it because I thought it was a little overbearing on the commitment – then yesterday happened. As I listened to the lyrics, I realised, I do feel this way about my friend. Well, select lyrics in the song are spot on, some are not quite as on target. So I will share the song and the important lyrics:

“When the rain is blowing in your face,
And the whole world is on your case,
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love”

“When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love”

“I would never do you wrong
I’ve known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong”

“The storms are raging on the rolling sea
And on the highway of regret
Though winds of change are throwing wild and free
You ain’t seen nothing like me yet”

So to my friend, I can only promise you this in life, I will be there for you, in good and bad times. I will defend you when you can’t stand for yourself, hug you when you need it and drink with you when there’s rum :) So here’s to you, a song & a pic.
