'Love Rules the World'
Copyright 2015
Marc Jeffares

Did you ever love a man?
Did you ever understand?
That wells of glory filled with empathy runneth over to drown misery?

Yonder, standing ‘neath the dark gathering clouds of hypnotic disdain,
I wonder where you are.
Down inside yourself again, my dear, you twist and turn me away.
I feel you fall apart.

Love rules the world.
No one’s innocent.

Did you ever look like me?
Did you ever try to see
That lashing out against the faithful heart
Can only keep you hiding in the dark?

Take tomorrow, take the one stubborn belief I have left in my mind.
I know that’s what you want.
The truer side of you is kinder than any one thing can destroy or defy.
I know you are the one.

Love rules the world.
No one’s Innocent.

The past is shattered like a dream.
The future waits in mystery.
Without a warning our hearts can break. When there’s so much to give, there’s more to take.

The pain of progress can feel like vertigo walking on wire.
Hell, catch us if we fall.
Like the phoenix sings a requiem for all the things that got lost in the fire,
I hear redemption’s call.

Love rules the world.
No one’s Innocent.

Love, indeed, rules the world; and as Northern California rock group The Trouble muses in their debut album, sometimes love rules the world with an iron fist.

Behind the redwood curtain of the Pacific Northwest, the band writes and records in a converted Victorian era carriage house, communing with familiar ghosts of Americana.
