    A bird can’t fly on a broken wing,
    A song can’t be sung without a voice to sing.

    It’s funny you can’t do one thing without doing another.
    So if you can’t do it alone, why even bother?
    Why?
    I’ll tell you why, because things become important at different intervals in our lives.

    We can’t love without hating,
    We cant’t give without receiving,
    I guess it’s just a part of our wanting and needing.

    So what’s the point?
    I sure would like to know.
    Sometimes I’m off the tracks and yet other times I’m on an even flow.

    What is really right?
    And who’s to say that it is wrong?
    Why do some of us fight and others get along?

    I have all these questions that I have not an answer to,
    The answers are not in me and they’re certainly not in you.

    I love you,
    No more and no less,
    But does me loving you exempt me from society’s mess?

    Sure, I love you today but I may not love you tomorrow.
    A new love law may be introduced and our love has to change,
    I may have to wait 100 years for the love law to be vetoed, then and only then would I be allowed to love you the same.

    You can’t do one thing without doing another.

    The positive and the negative, plus and minus, what would one be without the other, could either survive? I'm diggin the concept.
