"She Always Takes It Black" as written by and Gregory Alan Isakov....
Dreaming up this golden grain
But I'm falling from this shack
Talking sweet to the queen
Wishing I was riding with the jacks
Walking proud and lonesome now
Oh I'm yearning for the pack
But I'd never say "I love you," dear
Just to hear you say it back

I've heard the road to every truth
It's just a cul-de-sac
There's ladies and the lions there
But you know it's just an act
You search the world for the milk of the pearl
She always takes it black
But you'll love her till it all goes dark
You'll love her even after that

    General CommentThere is nothing in this life more important than selfless love. The two phases that absolutely kill me are:

    "But I'd never say "I love you," dear
    Just to hear you say it back"

    AND

    "But you'll love her till it all goes dark
    You'll love her even after that"

    Tell someone you love them, regardless of whether they love you back. Forget what you've heard about "scaring them away". You put a weight on yourself if you have this feeling and don't let it be known. If for no other reason, relieve yourself of the burden of "what could have been done differently" by stating how you really feel. And don't ever expect an "I love you" back... even if you think you deserve one.
