Love is Real

I used to +want some special +favor

from the fates that +stand above the sky,

used to think +I was a messenger

sent to figure +out the reasons why.

 

Chorus:

Hopes an' dreams-,

don't know what +any of it means,

love is +real, it's +real my friend

but never +ever what it seems.

 

Thought my +thoughts could last forever,

spun 'em out and +sent 'em toward the stars,

but now I see +how they wilt and wither,

without leaving +any signs or scars.

--

 

If I could I'd +rise above the clouds / like a +spaceship in the sun

breaking +free of time and +gravity, / hey would you +like come along.

 

I'd try to +let go my predictions / an' +all o' my +plans and schemes,

+let my spirit break away  abandon / +all these +earthly things.

 

--

 

I wanna travel +long with you my friend, / crossin the +midnight sky,

hopes an' dreams-, / were we only +born so we could die.

 

No, love is real, real as a rainbow, / as the scent of +flowers on the wind,

love is real, real as the shadows, / flowin like dark rivers through my mind.

 

--

 

I wanna +climb the hills of ecstacy / to where I +never been before,

break like a rocket +through the sky, / land on +some alien shore.

 

Hopes an' dreams-, / how much +farther can one fall?

How much +deeper can one dive, / into the +mystery of it all?

It's been a while since I've listened to anything from you, Polly, and I have to say I'm impressed. This is a really good folk song imo. I particularly like the chorus - simple and relatable but a profound truth.

In places, the delivery is rather rushed. I don't know if this is intentional, but for me it works, as it adds a certain urgency, as if this is a strongly felt message that is passing through you to the listener.

I may or may not be an enigma
