It knocked me down, it dragged me out, it left me there for dead. It took all the freedom I wanted and gave me something else instead. It blew my mind, it bled me dry, it hit me like a long goodbye, and nobody here knows better than I that itís a good thing.
Love is a good thing. Itíll fall like rain on your parade, laugh at the plans that you tried to make, itíll wear you down till your heart just breaks and itís a good thing. Love is a good thing.
Itíll wake you up in the middle of the night, itíll take just a little too much. Itíll burn you like a cinder till youíre tender to the touch. Itíll chase you down, swallow you whole, itíll make your blood run hot and cold. Like a thief in the night itíll steal your soul, and thatís a good thing. Love is a good thing. Itíll follow you down to the ruin of your great divide, and open the wounds that you tried to hide. And there in the rubble of the heart that died youíll find a good thing. Love is a good thing.
Take cover, the end is near. Take cover, but do not fear. Itíll break your will, itíll change your mind, itíll loose all the chains of the ties that bind. If youíre lucky youíll never make it out alive, and thatís a good thing. Love is a good thing. It can hurt like a blast from a hand grenade when all that used to matter is blown away. There in the middle of the mess it made youíll find a good thing.Yes, itís worth every penny of the price you paid. Itís a good thing.
Love is a good thing.
Do not fear.
