"On Love, In Sadness" as written by and Jason Mraz Jenny Keene....
Oh love it's a brittle madness, I sing about it in all my sadness
It's not falsified to say that I found god so inevitably well,
It still exists pale and fine. I can't dismiss
And I won't resist and if I die well at least I tried

And we just lay awake in lust and rust in the rain
And pour over everything we say we trust
It happened again, I listened in through hallways and thin doors
Where the rivers unwind, rust and in the rain endure.
The rust and the rain are sins
And I'm in like Flynn again

So go on place your order now cause some other time is right around the clock
You can stand in line. it finally begins just around the clock
You can have your pick if your stomach is sick whether you eat or not
And there is just one thing that I never forgot

And we just lay awake in lust and rust in the rain
And pour over everything we say we trust
It happened again, I listened in through hallways and thin doors
Where the rivers unwind, rust and in the rain so easy
These are the comforts that be

You see well I'm feeling lucky oh well, maybe that's just me
You should be proud of me oh hell if you could only see
That we're gonna grow on up to be, ah yes
We are thick as thieves

Oh love it's a brittle madness, I sing about it in all my sadness
It's not falsified to say that I found god
Inevitably, well it still exists pale and fine I can't dismiss
And I won't resist and if I die well at least I tried

And we just lay awake in lust and rust in the rain
And pour over everything we say we trust
It happened again, I listened in through hallways and thin doors
Where the rivers unwind and the rust and the rain endure
(the rust and the rain endure. I'm sure.)

I am insofar to know the measure of love isn't loss
Love will never ever be insofar to know the measure of love isn't loss
Love will never ever be lost on me.
Love will never ever be lost on me.

    General Commentcreative solution Pixyie, but the term 'in like Flynn' comes from Errol Flynn, the classic action hero from "Captain Blood" and the older Robin Hood movies... one of the first a great line of celebrities to be tried for statutory rape(acquited)... in case anyone was curious :)

    General CommentActually, KissMeLush, this song was also inspired by a poem written by the same girl whose writing inspired "Tonight, Not Again". *wink*

    General CommentThis song is so amazing, I just think what he tries to say is love is confusing and sometimes hurts but he's still gonna have love in his life doesn't matter if he's happy or sad, he's always gonna have it.

    What I like about it is that it just makes me be happy doesn't matter how mad or sad I am. I just play this song and it makes me want to dance, sing and smile, it's a really good song.
