More Love


John Mayer.  I loved his first two albums, thought he was a genius who wrote the songs that defined me.  Then he became something of a (I'll be polite here) jerk.  He's still talented but his music didn't appeal to me as much - and that may partly be because of the general perception I had of him.  When his most recent album came out it never even crossed my mind to pick it up.  Monday as I drove to work I recognized his voice on the radio singing "Heartbreak Warfare."  The song reminded me of some of his early work so I turned up the volume.


When he got to the chorus:

If you want more love,
Why don't you say so
Just say so


I suddenly remembered why I loved his early stuff and had a bit of an epiphany.  My independent soul has a tendency to insist that I don't need anyone else to make me complete but I can't help but wonder, does that line of thinking keep me from opening myself up to the possibility of love?  I think it may, so my new resolution is to follow Mr. Mayer's advice and become better at admitting and asking for love in my life.

I feel the same way about John Mayer. I used to love him and then I found out he was a jerk and I have to make myself forget about it when I listen to him
