Real Love

i think after listening to the song "Real Love" by John Lennon, i've determined it's the most beautiful, engaging, thoughtful, meaningful love song i've ever heard.

i first heard the song during the beatles anthology. near the end of the final disc after a couple of lennon's songs were discovered. the beatles got together and performed "Real Love."

then i heard regina spektor sing it on the instant kharma album to safe darfur.

i listened closely as i walked to herrick. i was entranced by the words, the arrangement, the voice. the words brought tears to my eyes. i never would have thought a song could do this.

i love the way it starts with the words, "all my little plans and scheme/lost like some forgotten dream/ seems like all i was doing was waiting for you."
the second verse talks about boys and girls playing around, but all they're doing is waiting for love.

then there are phrases like "seems like from this moment on, i know exactly where my life is going, " and perhaps the most poignant one, "thought i'd been in love before, but in my heart in my heart i wanted more/ seems like all i really was doing was waiting for you."

what words. you know lennon wrote this for yoko. he was married before but when yoko came along, it was like a match made in heaven.

say what you will about yoko (and i have been one to say why did he marry her??), but after hearing the song, it's plain that he loved the woman.

the part that brings goose bumps is the end (at least with the spektor version). she repeats, "it's real love" over and over. but it becomes a crescendo. so lovely.

and so it's with all my heart that i dedicate this beautiful song and its words and meaning to dawnie, my own soulmate. xxx000
