"True Love" as written by and Des Hefner */johnny Cooke */ronnie Perry....
Chicken wings, and diamond rings
There's anything I'd give to you
I'd ride a tiger, walk a wire
Wall to wall - yes, all for you
And if you asked I'd wear an iron mask
Oh! I'd chew glass for you
All for you

Pick a cloud, I'll fly
I'd drink the ocean dry for you
If love is really blind
I'd pluck out both my eyes for you
There's nothing I wouldn't try for you

(And still you say you love me
As you pull the screens
And pump the morphine
And I'll float up like a little ball
And maybe you think I'm not listening
As you scream and scream
But rest assured, I hear every word)

    General CommentA delightful ode to codependence and obsessive love. My introduction to the Dots, and abandon all hope . . .

    General CommentI actually find this song pretty frightening - maybe it's because of the frantic-sounding musical background, or the fact that the song's lyrical speaker is so willing to do anything for the object of his affection, or that last stanza that abstractly suggests their relationship is abusive, apathetic, or otherwise unhealthy. The scariest line, to me, is "If love is really blind/I'd pluck out both my eyes for you" - a symbolic metaphor turned into something extreme, painful, and disturbing. The title of the song - "True Love" - it gives the impression that love is measured by how far you're willing to go for someone who may not even truly care about you. Which is true to an extent, but it shouldn't come with the willingness to hurt yourself for no reason, just because someone says you should. Frightening stuff, yes. But I enjoy it anyway.
