Love Hurts / Liebe tut Weh / O amor Machuca / El amor Duele

Love can, and will, hurt you like nothing else will.

In a strict scientific sense, Love is nothing more than your brain releasing certain chemicals when it is triggered by something, be it a thought, a memory, or a visual stimula.

This, however, seems to many people to be a far too clean cut, cold, and uninspiring definition of Love. Some go so far as to argue that if this is your view, you do not really know what Love is.

Part of the reason that many people think this way is that Love does not seem to be a single emotion. Many feel it as a combination of many, many different emotions, and often thoughts as well, many of which are quite powerful.

This, for obvious reasons, tends to make it extremely difficult, if not impossible, for them to articulate precisely what it is that they define as Love.

Love is an unique experience for each individual, and each time it happens. This can be demonstrated by loving both your partner, and your family. In both instances, what you feel is Love, but they are vastly different from each other.

Indeed, if you are fortunate enough to have multiple people you love, you can see it further differentiated, in that the Love you feel for the different people is never quite the same. It may be of similar ‘strength,’ but it is different from one to another.

The only thing that remains consistent across all types of Love and across all those who feel it is that, once you are fortunate, or you are unfortunate depending on your view and the cirumstances, you are never the same afterwards. In some cases, this can be a good thing. In others, it can be a bad thing.

It has inspired both some of the greatest things in Human history, and it has also inspired some of the worst. Down through the years, across the World, this single word has inspired many ideas, some good, some bad, and some downright weird.

The idea is as simple as it is absurd. It, when boiled down and stripped of all it’s romantism, basically states that, for every person on the planet, there is, somewhere out there among the billions of other Humans on our World, a person that is perfect for them, the only one they can ‘truly’ love, the only they can ever ‘truly’ love.

Love hurts
Love scars
Love wounds and marks
Any heart not tough or strong enough
To take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain
Love is like a cloud, it holds a lot of rain
Love hurts
Ooh love hurts

I’m young
I know
But even so
I know a thing or two, I learned from you
I really learned a lot, really learned a lot
Love is like a flame, it burns you when it’s hot
Love hurts
Ooh love hurts

Some fools think
Of happiness, blissfulness, togetherness
Some fools fool themselves, I guess
They’re not foolin’ me
I know it isn’t true I know it isn’t true
Love is just a lie made to make you blue
Love hurts
Ooh love hurts
Ooh love hurts

I know it isn’t true
I know it isn’t true
Love is just a lie made to make you blue
Love hurts
