I’m learning to play John Mayer’s song, Fathers, and in the first line he sings:
I know a girl
She puts the color inside of my world.
I love that. But I also question it.
Can a girl really put the color inside of my world?
Can the love of a girl put the color inside my world?
I mean, shouldn’t we put the color into our own world? And really, isn’t the color there already? Maybe it’s just waiting to be seenâ€¦ or to be shown.
It also got me thinking about the movie Jerry Maguire and that whole “You complete me” theme they had going.
Can someone complete me?
Can love complete me?
Aren’t I already complete? Maybe I just need to remember that completeness?
I’ve got some more thoughts on this, but I’d love to hear what you think. I’ve really enjoyed your comments and insights on my Ring of Fire “coincidence” and want to open some space for you to share your thoughts here as well.
