Love and scandal are the best sweeteners of tea. —Henry Fielding

On Love (For Valentine's Day)

From "The Absence of God" on Rilo Kiley's More Adventurous:

Rob says you love, love, love and then you die.
I've watched him while sleeping
And seen him crying with closed eyes.
And you're not happy but you're funny and I'm tripping over my joy
I just keep on getting up again

We could be daytime drunks if we wanted
We'd never get anything done that way baby
And we'd still be ruled by our dueling perspectives
And I'm not my perspective
Or the lies I'll tell you every time

And Morgan says, "Maybe love won't let you down...
"All of your failures are training grounds,
"And just as your back's turned, you'll be surprised," she says,
"As your solitude subsides."
