2/52 Simplicity Cuts Through Complexity—"A Love That Will Last" by Renee Olstead

THE SONG: A Love That Will Last, by Renee Olstead

I want a little something more
Don't want the middle or the one before
I don't desire a complicated past
I want a love that will last
Say that you love me
Say I’m the one
Don't kiss and hug me and then try to run
I don't do drama
My tears don't fall fast
I want a love that will last

[Chorus]

I don't want just a memory
Give me forever
Don't even think about saying goodbye
Cuz I just want one love to be enough
And remain in my heart till I die

So call me romantic
Oh I guess that's so
There’s something more that you ought to know
I'll never leave you
So don't even ask
I want a love that will last
Forever
I want a love that will last

[Chorus]

So there’s just a little more that I need
I want to share all the air you breathe
I'm not the kinda girl to complicate the past
I want a love that will last
Forever
I want a love the love that will last
Always
I just want a love that will last
I want a love that will last

THE LOVE NOTE

Dear Kara,

I got it. Thanks baby.

THE GREAT RELATIONSHIP PRINCIPLE

Simplicity cuts through complexity. "I don't want a complicated past... don't want drama... I just want a love that will last." Too many of the couples I work with have complicated their relationships. For example, they want a deep and meaningful friendship, yet they don't treat each other as friends.  The simple approach is to then begin acting in friendly ways even if you don't feel friendly. Be nice. Duh. So obvious yet it's missed because we add complexity: "I'd be nice if she wouldn't...". Cut through the crud and just be nice anyway.
