"Ten" as written by and Dave A Berg Jewel Kilcher....
Whoever said that love is easy, must've never been in love,
Sometimes its a landmine, one wrong step and it blows up,
A word, a look, lights a hidden fuse.

It's hard to see just what you have, when you're seeing red,
And easy to do something that you know you will regret,
Better stop, think, count to ten before I leave.

One, I still wanna hate you,
Two, three, I still wanna leave,
Four, searching for that door,
Five, then I look into your eyes,
Six, take a deep breathe,
Seven, take a step back,
Eight, nine, I don't know why we even started this fight,
By the time I get to ten, I'm right back in your arms again.

Words thrown so callously like weapons when we fight,
But when they cut too deep, I wanna leave it all behind,
I have to count to ten, before I cross that line.

One, I still wanna hate you,
Two, three, I still wanna leave,
Four, I'm searching for that door,
Five, then I look into your eyes,
Six, take a deep breathe,
Seven, take a step back,
Eight, nine, I don't know why, we even started this fight,
By the time I get to ten, I'm right back in your arms again.

You can lose what you're not thankful for,
I don't want that to happen to you and me,
Better count my blessings.

One, you still move me,
Two, three, you send chills right through me,
Four, you keep me wanting more,
Five, when I look into your eye,
Six, you're my best friend,
Seven, that'll never end,
Eight, nine, I don't know why, but thank God it happens every time,
By the time I get to ten,
By the time I get to ten,
I can see how blessed I've been.

I choose you all over again.

    General CommentFirst off, LOVE...true love, is not easy. It takes work and it takes time. To anyone who has ever been in love, know that it takes a cooperative effort; a mutual friendship AND passion.

    Secondly, you will fight. You WILL have your ups and downs and your differences. No couple, that is worth anything, will go without a feud. And I'm not talking about physical fights...I'm talking about heated discussions/debates, opposing opinions, and conflicting interests. Those are the moments that fill the voids between happiness. The times you DON'T take a picture together. But, those are also the moments that lead you both to realize you are individuals...separate people who find amazing beauty in each other, no matter the circumstance(s). When you each find perfection with each others' imperfections.

    Thirdly, please don't make rash decisions, portray hatred, or blurt out negative comments toward the one you love. Actions speak louder than words, but you must realize in an instant the wrong phrase or the wrong statement at the wrong time, may cost you the most precious relationship you'll ever know.

    Treasure what you have...don't throw out hurtful words carelessly...and for those fortunate enough to get a second chance after all has been said and done...PLEASE count your blessings.

    (As for my opinion on the "meaning" of the song: It's about a girl/guy who wants to leave/hate the significant other they love...but no matter the circumstances, they find true happiness in each other. They fight, but after all is said and done, they can't come to terms with leaving and come together/embrace as one...and thank God for being blessed with the special bond they share.)

    *Live with no excuses...and love with no regrets*
