Song #52: I Will

"Omnia vincit Amor" [Virgil]

Here we are: week 52, the sunset, the finish line, the final song. Next week I'll be back with a recap on

One Love, One Year

but this week I'm going to refrain from saying too much and let this song speak for itself. I believe these lyrics, in their almost elementary simplicity, say enough.

LYRICS:

In your youth, dear, while you are able-

young and dancing upon the tables

I will be here

I will love you

I will

 

While you serve your purpose and live your passions

And share your love light with all the masses

I'll support you

I will love you

I will

 

When you need a challenge and a firm hand

or would rather be held, let me hold your head

I will lead you

I will love you

I will

 

When you can't do it and you need some help

When our bodies slow down with ailing health

I will be there

and I will love you

I will

 

And when we're old, dear, and it all fades

And you can no longer dance upon this stage

I will carry you

I will carry you

I will

Song #24: Ellipses

"It's so easy to think about love, to talk about love, to wish for love...
but it's not always easy to recognize love, even when we hold it...
in our hands." [Jaka]

LYRICS:

when words become ellipses

when knowing glances become kisses

you can't miss it

when all day long you listen

to dreams that say "you'll be his Mrs."

and oh the kisses

 

that's when you'll know

 

when you come home some evening

to find that love makes life worth living

are you kidding?

that's when you'll know

when you find that your guy

is quite unlike who came before

and in his presence you are not less, you are more

when you tell all your friends about him

and well up with pride because of who he is

it may be it

 

that's when you'll know

 

when words become ellipses

when knowing glances become kisses

you can't miss it

that's when you'll know
