Rob Rodell: Music

Could This Be Love?

(Rob Rodell)
September 23, 2008
This song originally started to grow legs when I was on holiday in Umdloti in 2006. It really speaks of my inner struggle between the spirit and the flesh, between the head and the heart, and is, I suppose, typical of the dichotomy that artists feel, running the gamut of the emotional spectrum that makes artists who they are.

This sounds morbid, but if I could choose, I would have opted to NOT exist in the first place. I think the world is a messed up place!

But, I have been given life, so I want to choose to celebrate it, always trying to be grateful for the many blessings I have in my life.
Verse 1:
My life has always been a mess, oh but lately there's been more distress
'Cause my mind is the battlefield, and my body is the war
I'm in too deep, I don't think I can take this anymore

I just don't know what or where to do, my loneliness is because of you
Why do you take me for a fool?
Could this be love?

Verse 2:
So now I'm in a world of sin, and I really want it, want to give in
'Cause my thoughts they keep a-hauntin' me, don't know how to make it through
And my only hope is holdin' onto you
