I'm In Love With You - Ryan Adams

from the single Do You Laugh When You Lie? (2014)

Love.  Exciting and New.  If only it were that easy.

Once upon a time, I was a freckle faced boy with a somewhat naive view of love.  Bopping around like Super Mario with a bouquet of daisies in my hand for that special someone.  Singing along to Paul McCartney songs like nothing else mattered.  And it didn't.

Good news is that that kid still lives inside me and pops his head out from time to time.  However, I have also grown to understand that love ever evolving in its complexity.  Like a fine wine.

I've been happily exploring those more nuanced elements of love lately.  Finding meaning in the art of Marc Chagall, the books of Graham Greene, and the poems of Jose Garcia Villa.  Did you really think I would mention Larry Flint?

So, when Ryan Adams released a song titled I'm In Love With You, I needed to know if he would be rhyming love with above, or perhaps rubber glove.

It is both pure and dark.  Alone with his feelings.  Visual image of shadows on the concrete.  Not particularly insightful, but any Ryan Adams song is great listening.

By the way, I'm in love with you!
