When you’re not in it, you wanna be
When you’re in it, you want out
And when you’d rather be alone,
There’s one you can’t do without
Just when you set it in your mind
You won’t fall for it – it knocks!
Pulling down at boarded windows
And battering off the locks!
You pretend to not have noticed,
It screams at you – SURPRISE!!
I tell you it’s hard to ignore the thing,
When it looks you in the eyes!
Crush, suppress and bottle it down,
It’ll leap right back at you
More often than not, i tell you what,
At all the wrong times too!
You wish just once you could attack
Love – just as it’s knocked you out
To let love feel how it makes you feel
Whether you’re with it, or without
And finally you do give in
The white flag does go up
On your knees, nay, on your face,
You admit – shucks! I’m in love!
And then wonder of wonders,
The darkness turns to light
The silence seems to speak,
Whoa! The black holes look so bright!!
‘Birds screeching’ turns to singing
The wind turns into breeze
Small things ignite the best in you,
Like cats stuck on the trees
The world becomes a better place
And heav’n looks not too far
‘Hopeless’ looks so promising
You’ve peace in midst of war
Apparently it’s the best feeling
To be loved and to love
To know you fit with somebody
– As a hand fits in the glove
A gentle, nudging of the heart
Its power you dare not doubt
A force to reckon with it is
Gives in, but won’t give out
To the weak and to the timid
It empowers out and out
It stands its ground and humbles
The mighty and the proud
What a wonder of all wonders
A feeling so very light
Can lend to you the massive strength
To lead you through the night
It’s worth being in love, my dear,
And though it brings some pain
You won’t believe it till you see
It’s a blessing and a gain
What is it about love?
That makes it worth the dive
You die to self, and to the world,
And then you come alive!!
