i was thinking about relationship as it pertains to song about relationship. it occured to me, i figured out a key to a relationship and how to make it work.

when u first meet somebody u find out they like you first of all. a friend of a friend of theirs tells you he or she really likes you. and it kills u, force you and sends u on the grounds. then somehow u got her phone number. u call her up and start talkin and at the end you say "well, thats a great phone conversation, can i see ya sometime?" and then they say this, they say  "i’d like that.."

"i’d like that" makes u fall on the floor again, ur heart about to stop. nothing feels better than "i’d like that". so now, ur blood presssure goin, u r six feet off the ground, u can’t sleep because of "i’d like that".

so u’ve been hanging out for a while and u’ve been calling and talkin on the phone all the time and then u drop the bomb or what feels like the bomb. u say, u know what … "i’ve been thinking about you a while". and she just went speechless and then you say "what?"… and she said "i’m sorry i’ve just… i’ve.. just.. i’ve been thinking about you too." BAM! higher than the sky. but now, "i’d like that"..DONE! now you r up to "i’ve been thinking about you.. "

"i’d like that" doesn’t work anymore.

and then a few months past , whatever weeks, whatever makes u feel comfortable you say "i gotta tell you something.." you say this…. " i’m in love with you…" and nothing in the world sounds better than i’m in love with you and maybe she starts crying.

now what doesn’t work? "i’d like that" and "i’ve been thinking about you"

now fast forward u start sayin "i love you a lot", six weeks, six months, now u are like… "i wanna marry u, i wanna impregnant u with my love, damn! words just doenst work anymore..". and then u say this line, u know u’ve used this line before "i just wish they put a new word in the dictionary bigger than love because love just doesn’t describe what i feel."

and so then now he/she start askin "do you love me?" and you start going "of course i love you, i’ll say it twice, i’ll say it three times", and then you cross a really interesting point where all of the sudden comes "i hate you, i hate you". and they are saying "i hate you a lot" and she’s goin "we’re over!!" u say "no we’re not!"

now the words do not work at all, completely meaningless, it doesn’t work anymore,you are throwing punches under water and u know u r done..

you know what the moral of the story is? if there’s any… never ever underestimate the power of "i’d like that" !
