I love love. I think one of the most wonderful things that can happen to you during your life time is to fall head over heels in love with someone. The euphoria that is attached to it. The walking on air. The constant butterflies. The perpetual smile. All the little things that would normally drive you crazy seem 'so cute'. Yeah. I love love.
Unfortunately that feeling doesn't last forever. It's impossible to sustain. Real life settles in. And 'so cute' isn't so cute anymore. But that doesn't mean love ends. No it's just beginning. There is something wonderful about knowing someone. Really knowing someone. The good and the bad. The tears and the laughter. Finishing sentences. Comfortable silence. A knowing look. A walk linking their pinky to yours. Laughing at their dumb jokes. Your jokes are of course brilliant. We know that. The first person you call when something good happens. The first person you run to when something bad happens. The holder of your secrets. The keeper of your heart. The person you are the most vulnerable with. The person who can hurt you the most. And sometimes they do. Love.
When I wrote the lyrics to Old Fashioned Love I was thinking of my husband's and my relationship at the time. I wanted to write a happy song. A love song. A new love song. There are many songs about love. Because there are many types and levels of love. This song is about my love. I hope you like it.
