Everybody. . .

We have fallen down again tonight
In this world it's hard to get it right 
Trying to make your heart fit like a glove
What it needs is love, love, love

The thing about falling down is that we will fall often.  No matter how many times we fall, we need to learn how to get back up again and continue on your journey.  You might get too uptight about things and have such self control that inhibits you from making the necessary mistakes in life in order to learn.  There is no such thing as perfection, but don't get me wrong, I'm not saying you shouldn't  strive for perfection either.

Happy is the heart that still feels pain
Darkness drains and light will come again
Swing open up your chest and let it in
Just let the love, love, love begin

I am fascinated by how much hearts can take.  They may seem like small things in your body (there are smaller organs, we all know that) but the amount of pressure and strain that the human heart can be subjected to is worth noting.  It is easy for darkness to fill your heart and take control of every decision that you make, because depending on what is in your heart - whether it is dark or light - it means that you are able to make an impact in someone's life when you show them what you heart is all about.  How resilient is your heart?  Is it a tough one?  Has it been broken so many times that it's developed biceps to withstand any other abuse that may be hurled its way?  How tough does your heart need to be these days?  It doesn't matter how many times I have felt pain in my heart.  I would rather that my heart knows how to feel, even during those bad times. because then I know I'm alive.

Everybody, everybody wants to love
Everybody, everybody wants to be loved
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Everybody, everybody wants to love
Everybody, everybody wants to be loved
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

What I am saying is that we need to be focusing on making things right within ourselves first, and know how we are. before we try and "force" or coerce people into following our values and belief systems, without first understanding theirs either.  But it doesn't talk to be frank and have the necessary conversations so that you can start making natural connections with people.  I'm not interested in the contrived connections but the natural ones that form because of who you are as a person.  Love what you bring to the table, whatever table it is that you're seated at and who you are seated with.  Love yourself so that others know how much value and self worth you inject in yourself.

Oh, everybody knows the love
Everybody holds the love
Everybody folds for love
Everybody feels the love
Everybody steals the love
Everybody feels with love

Can you relax your heart around some people but not others?  When your heart is filled with light, it will be easier for your heart to recognise other hearts that mirror it as well, other hearts that also reflect their light in the words that come out of the mouths of people when you least expect.

I hope that you are able to surround yourself with people who know how to hold, fold, feel, steal and feel love.  Life is too short these days to be wasting time with people who don't know how to love, or don't want to love.  Because even when we're trying to hide ourselves and our hearts away, we all know deep down that everybody, everybody wants to love, everybody everybody wants to be loved. . .
