"My Truth" as written by Simon Philip Raymonde, Elizabeth Fraser and Robin A. Guthrie....
You become a world for his
New heart, accepting
And you can work
Through the pain
Or enjoy the pleasure
Commit to the work of both
If your love has energy
You have chemistry
And you can work
Through the pain
Or enjoy the pleasure
You can you can you can work
Through the pain
Or enjoy the pleasure
You can you can you can work
Through the pain
And come to peace
It's frightening
Exciting
Something shakes of forlorn understanding
The truth is not perfect
But it fools and confuses
Every moment vaguely
You can you can you can work
Through the pain
Or enjoy the pleasure
You can you can you can work
Through the pain
And come to peace
I remember my secret
I write it down and then I tell you it
It's not harm free
Outside of myself
What has saved me?
C-c-c-c-can work through the pain
Or enjoy the pleasure
You c-c-c-c-c-c-can work through the pain
And come to peace
You can work through the pain
Or enjoy the pleasure

    General CommentBeing in a relationship where you have been in it for a while and it is getting hard and on the verge where you are at a point where you maybe out of the "in love" feelings but want to work because you care and love him/her and unable to let go.

    General CommentThe song presents a familiar message that doing hard work and enjoying pleasure are opposed. What will you choose? It is a song about making choices in a relationship over time, perhaps reflecting on the recent past and looking forward to the future.

    The repetition of 'or' is interesting in light of the early message that lovers can actually have both (Commit to the work of both / If your love has energy / You have chemistry). In my view, the song turns on this 'if' as much as it does on the 'or'. Each choice about how to handle the relationship is more loaded when both/and is also possible. To an impersonal you, the speaker poses a challenge. Does your love have the energy to commit this 'or' to an 'and'?

    I find it an incredibly romantic invitation to make something new together. Are we up to it? What shall it be?
