Lie To Me by Jonny Lang

Lie to me and tell me everything is all right
Lie to me and tell me that you'll stay here tonight
Tell me that you'll never leave
Oh, and I'll just try to make believe
That everything, everything your telling me is true
Come on baby won't you just

Lie to me, go ahead and lie to me

Lie to me, it doesn't matter anymore
It could never be, the way it was before
If I can't hold on to you
Leave me somethin' I can hold onto
For just a little while won't you, won't you let me be

Oh, anyone can see
That you love him more than me
But right now baby let me pretend
That our love will never end

Lie to me, go ahead and lie to me

Clik it bra

Well. At least this dude has the courage to admit that all sentiments of love are lies. Because they are. Nobody loves anyone. Not really. And this dude wants what we all want. Some good lovin. But he knows it aint possible. So he wants the next best thing. Let's just pretend you love me. Well that is every relationship in the world. But he is still a fool for wanting to keep the sick cycle continuing. Better to just not indulge in this sick game. Also he is a gaywad. I saw his video and total queer.

Well... I have to agree that there really is no such things as "romantic" love. I think that is a constuct of culture. Or... going into an even more primal definition, it is mearly natures way of getting us to reproduce. But even that kind of love is love is real. As real as any emotion that we experience. I do believe that real love, if you can talk about it that way, is something that is cultivated over time. Over years. Over a lifetime. I know that what I feel for my kids is like no other emotion I have towards another person. I call it love. Now this song is about the romantic, get you in the sack kind of love. And if you are experienceing it in your 40s something is seriously wrong in your development. It is a song of the kind of desparation you feel hopefully only once or twice in a lifetime when you are spreading your relationship wings. Oh... and you are a bigot.

I was watching one of my favorite True Detective episodes last night, (the one with the continuous camera shot in the intense drug run) and he's having a chat with the partners wife. The gist of the conversation was that the whole reason we go through all the trials and tribulations of love and marriage is to basically procreate, nothing more. Now it's a bleak outlook, but it does have a certain ring of truth, at least at times. I'm not saying love isn't possible, or doesn't exist, but it sure isn't easy finding that perfect, undying love that everyone in the movies seems to find, within the average running time of 2 hours. Now we've all had a relationship or two where we were dating that special someone that was lying through their teeth, and for some reason(hopefully a good one) we put up with it and sallied forth. At this point in our lives, yes I hope we are not allowing this to happen to us again, but there's always that chance you'll find that diamond in the rough that has one more man destroying ticket that she wants to cash in. Oh and for the record, my Mom loves Johnny Lang, and he is a doofus.

The thing about the movies is, in general we are seeing only the beginning of the relationship. If we are seeing a relationship of two people who have been together a long time they are almost always secondary to the main characters. If they are primary, then the story is usually about how the relationship is crashing and burning. Love is hard work. But it is worth if if its right. I guess thats the ticket.
