He said please don't take him
'Cause I love him
He's my joy and my life
For my love I won't hesitate
I will give him all that his heart can take
And I'll trust him fearlessly
I want him to be free
It was Andrew Haigh's Weekend that turned me on to this. Immediately I heard it, it sounded like I knew it from my childhood. But that couldn't have been for John Grant's melancholic love song didn't exist then.
So, it must be something that resonates with me. Bittersweet love always does. And it has something of the Peter Paul & Mary Puff about it, which does take me back to childhood.
