'Cause love's such an old-fashioned word, and love dares you to care.. for the people on the edge of the night, and love dares you to change our way of caring about ourselves"...

Thank you David Bowie/Queen for that... Not sure who gets what credit- not terribly well versed in the histories of either to be truthful with you all...

Love... crazy thing, that silly, old emotion. Where does this... this "feeling"... this "force" get off thinking it can control our disposition, our emotions at their very deepest? Who told it that it could have such a deep influence- something that couldn't simply be forgotten or turned away from... Juliana Theory does their fair share with "Don't Push Love Away"...

Here's a thought, if you're willing to listen
I only tell the truth of the feelings I'm given
Can you hear me now?
Listen
Whispers in the rain
Listen
Don't push love away, you know you do
It's all we have
It's a chore holding onto a vision
Don't leave her high and dry
She's the one you'll be missing
Can you hear me now?
Listen
Whispers in the rain, while you're awake
Don't push love away, you know you do
It's all we have
I hate to think hesitation is a burden
A bittersweet design for a lesson you're learning
She's crying
Can you feel me now this time?
Whispers in the rain, lying awake
Don't push love away, you know you do
It's all we have
Here's a thought, if you're willing to listen.

It should never be acceptable to push love away, no matter what else is playing in your mind. Certain types- call them "forms"- of love are stronger than that, and hold the ability to transcend barriers unsurmounted by most anything else. And you'll know it when you find someone like that. You'll know it, even if it's not immediately apparent. You'll know it, because what's left will remind you.

You'll wonder why those feelings were ever felt like that, and you'll taste the air, and it'll remind you, in a flash, in a brief moment, why. Embrace that moment sometime, and see where it gets you... Love knows it, even if you don't.
