How’s This For a Love Song?

This is probably one of the best love songs I have ever heard. Not because it’s sweet or heart melting, but because it’s real.

And redemptive, at that!

Thank you Brooke Fraser for breathing a little reality into a society filled with fairy tales about relationships.

Brooke Fraser – Who Are We Fooling?

So we’re back here again
Tip toeing round the edge of the end
Wondering who will be last to admit
That we’re finally over

Turned twenty one on the day that we met
Terrible shoes and plausible dress
It’s funny how sad the funny things get as you grow older

Better or worse
But what else can we do?
And better or worse
I am tethered to you
If it’s not either of us
Tell me who are we fooling?

I love the art of biting my tongue
I’m tired of trying to guess what was wrong
Both agreed on where we should go
But not how to get there

We tried and tried to loosen the knots
Thinking once we’re untangled we’ll be better off
But it’s these failures and faults that hold us together

Better or worse
But what else can we do?
And better or worse
I am tethered to you
If it’s not either of us
Tell me who are we fooling?

This beautiful tangle that’s bruising us blue
It’s a beautiful knot that we just can’t undo
Together we’re one but apart tell me
Who are we fooling?

Cause real love
Is hard love
It’s all we have
It’s a break-neck
Train wreck
It’s all we have

So we’re back here again
Turning away from the edge of the end
Arm in arm

Better or worse
But what else can we do?
And better or worse
I am tethered to you
If it’s not either of us
Tell me who are we fooling?

This beautiful tangle that’s bruising us blue
It’s a beautiful knot we just can’t undo
If it’s not either of us, tell me who are we fooling?

Together we’re one, but apart tell me
Who are we fooling?
