Jim Loftus: MP3 Samples

Love Doesn't Have To Be

(Jim Loftus)
April 20, 2002
I just really love this song! It's like cheap medicinal advice for a relationship and maybe it works against the long-held theory that 'you have to WORK at relationships'--well this is a twist on that--saying 'why does it HAVE to be WORK??'--I dunno--whatdya think Dr. Phil?
LOVE DOESN'T HAVE TO BE

Life's a struggle it's an endless climb
Lot's to juggle hey who has the time
Remember though--that love doesn't have to be

You have to work at love that's what they say
Constant drudgery no time to play
Remember though--but love doesn't have to be

When there's a storm in your relationship
No one's talking and the skies grow cloudy
Seek the warmth the loving sun can give
Let it melt away the pain
Even in the driving rain

You've been searching for that perfect life
Perfect husband, the perfect wife
Remember though--that love doesn't have to be

Don't spend your life inspecting every flaw
Try to appreciate the imperfections
You many find treasures there you never saw
Take the time to see what's there
Let your lover know you care

Give yourself a break don't chase so hard
Life is now and you hold every card
Remember this--yet love doesn't have to be

Life's a struggle it's an endless climb
Lot's to juggle hey who has the time
Remember though--that love doesn't have to be
No love doesn't have to be
Love doesn't have to be...
Love doesn't have to be...
