My buddy John Alabaszowski will likely remember me saying in high school that, “Love is an over-used theme in way too many songs – something I will be avoiding.” Ah well, maybe I should have attended more physics and english classes to appreciate the latent and potential energy of the Eros/Pathos dynamic.
That being said, another friend, Steve Pulchalski recently made a fine point: The english language relies heavily on a single word to express the almost trivial to the almost unfathomable – Love.
Make Me Love You
You’re gonna make me love you You’re gonna make me breakdown baby, do You’re gonna make me love you If I stick around to see
Your charms are sweet and lovely Your arms could stop a baby’s cry It’s such a nice recovery To hesitate I wonder why
But I love the whole world If I stop to notice anything Outside my own window
And it’s all about a girl The hope, the need, the grace, the greed It’s the Eros that keeps this world on turning
The call has all but won me And you’re all cream and flowing honey A fine prize anyone could see But it’s goodbye for the likes of me
But I love the whole world When I stop to notice all the roses Outside my own window
And it’s all about a girl The hope, the need, the grace, the greed It’s the Pathos that keeps this world on turning
