I’ll add something here when I get around to it.  In the meantime you can read the lyrics to the song I just listened to:

Love is real
it is not
just in novels or the movies
it is fact
and it is standing here right in front of you
so if you open your eyes
what a sweet discovery
there is hope, and there is joy, and there is acceptance
so now let all the light that collects on your plants
keep you warm
make you smile
and I will be there with this pen in my hand
to record
all the while
you’ll be laughing so loud
that the house would shake with sound
and everything will be as new as the day it was found.

Love is real
it is not
just in poetry and stories
it is truth
and it will follow you everywhere you go from now on
so if you would just cast off your doubt
then your lips would answer for you
oh my darling, when you smile
it is like a song
and I can hear it now.

~ Conor Oberst
