One Need in the Night

Its been quite some time since the Monologue has had much to say. Some of that has to do with overwhelming circumstances- some great and some not- and also with underwhelming circumstances. The Monologue has repressed itself for a while as is to be expected of anything organic. Seasons, I guess.

Was on a long drive today by myself. Not something that happens much at all these days and when a particular song came on, I felt a stirring of the mind. Kind of like it woke up. Arousal felt good... As it always does.

Johnny Cash singing U2's One Love. Maybe it'll stir you up as well. Cheers.

Is it getting better?
Or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now?
You got someone to blame
You say
One love
One life
When it's one need
In the night
One love
We get to share it
It leaves you baby if you
Don't care for it

Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without
Well it's

Too late
Tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to
carry each other
carry each other
One

Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus
To the lepers in your head?

Did I ask too much?
More than a lot.
You gave me nothing,
Now it's all I got
We're one
But we're not the same
See we
Hurt each other
Then we do it again
You say
Love is a temple
Love a higher law
Love is a temple
Love is a higher law
You ask me to enter
But then you make me crawl
And I can't keep holding on
To what you got
When all you've got is hurt

One love
One blood
One life
You got to do what you should
One life
With each other
Sisters, brothers
One life
But we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other
One...
