Two Sides Of The Coin


You say you want diamonds on a ring of gold
You say you want your story to remain untold

But all the promises we made
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You say you’ll give me a highway with no one on it
A treasure just to look upon it
All the riches in the night

You say you’ll give me eyes in a world of blindness
A river in a time of dryness
A harbour in the tempest

But all the promises we make
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You say you want your love to work out right
To last with me through the night

You say you want diamonds on a ring of gold
Your story to remain untold
Your love not to grow cold

All the promises we break
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You
All I want is…you
All I want is…you
All I want is…you

You say you’ll give me a highway with no one on it
A treasure just to look upon it
All the riches in the night

You say you’ll give me eyes in a world of blindness
A river in a time of dryness
A harbour in the tempest

But all the promises we make
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You say you want your love to work out right
To last with me through the night

You say you want diamonds on a ring of gold
Your story to remain untold
Your love not to grow cold

All the promises we break
From the cradle to the grave
When all I want is you

You
All I want is…you
All I want is…you
All I want is…you

All I Want Is You- U2

That flip side is filled with rage and with untold anger. Some say it is still filled with love but I can’t say whether that is true or not. Perspective is skewed and objectivity gone.

When you say “fuck you” and tell the person you care most to “go fuck themselves” you take a chance that they will believe and accept the validity of your words. You shake your fists and spit out their name with the same bitter intensity of the most vile four letter word and then ask them to forgive you because your words weren’t what you intended them to be.

You thought they would see through it all and accept you for yourself and maybe they did. Or maybe not.
