Love in the 21st Century

I like singing this in a sultry, jazzy and Broadway type of style, helps the message taste a little sweeter and makes it a little more digestible. If opposites attract, then these two people are totally made out of magnet and steel. This piece does make me giggle though. These are trying times and love must survive for life to move on.

You are everything in a man I’ve NEVER wanted
Yet there are so many things in you I can’t live without
Like your music and romance and intellect
But your views on politics and the world fill me with doubt

I dance naked in your stream of consciousness
Splash your heavenly waters around
I’d love to immerse my whole body
But then when you open your mouth…

I fear I’ll hear what I don’t want to hear
See what I don’t want to see
So I focus on the beautiful things
So you and I can be
In love
In love
This is what love is…
You will be you
And I will be me
Together we make our life
what we want it to be
The things we do together
make us trust and feel free
The things we don’t agree with we ignore happily
Because that is love in the 21st Century

I know I’m everything in a woman you’ve NEVER wanted
Because I live conservatively
What’s wrong with saving unborn babies,
and less government for you and me?

You say you have your reasons
I try to understand what you see
Maybe I can learn from you
and you can learn from me…

Still you fear you’ll hear what you don’t want to hear
See what you don’t want to see
So you focus on the beautiful things
So we can be
In love
In love
This is what love is…
You will be you
And I will be me
Together we make our love
what we want it to be
The things we do together
make us trust and feel free
The things we don’t agree with we ignore happily
Because that is love in the 21st Century

I go with you and hang out at your protests
You go with me and hang out at my church
Even though we both look the other way
we hold each other’s hand and put each other first

So you and I can be
In love
In love
Because this is love in the 21st Century
