invincible summers

in the middle of winter I at last discovered that there was in me an invincible summer. (albert camus)

a man who has been through it all and survived. i deeply admire him and still love this Elton John video he made in 2001.

“I Want Love”

(after you click play, you will have to click on the youtube logo as this video does not allow embedding)

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin

I want love, but it’s impossible
A man like me, so irresponsible
A man like me is dead in places
Other men feel liberated

I can’t love, shot full of holes
Don’t feel nothing, I just feel cold
Don’t feel nothing, just old scars
Toughening up around my heart

But I want love, just a different kind
I want love, won’t break me down
Won’t brick me up, won’t fence me in
I want a love, that don’t mean a thing
That’s the love I want, I want love

I want love on my own terms
After everything I’ve ever learned
Me, I carry too much baggage
Oh man I’ve seen so much traffic

So bring it on, I’ve been bruised
Don’t give me love that’s clean and smooth
I’m ready for the rougher stuff
No sweet romance, I’ve had enough
