For those who know true love

I know that a lot of people are "in love" but have no idea what true love is. Here is a song that could help show you. And if you have true love, you'll know be able to appreciate the words. May the newly "in loves" realize that love is a choice, a wonderful choice, but a very very hard choice.
Love Is A Good Thing...A Hard Thing...but a Good Thing

It knocked me down,
it dragged me out,
it left me there for dead.
It took all the freedom I wanted
and gave me something else instead.
It blew my mind,
it bled me dry,
it hit me like a long goodbye,
and nobody here knows better than I...
...that it’s a good thing.
Love is a good thing.
It’ll fall like rain on your parade,
laugh at the plans that you tried to make,
it’ll wear you down till your heart just breaks...
...and it’s a good thing.
Love is a good thing.
It’ll wake you up in the middle of the night,
it’ll take just a little too much.
It’ll burn you like a cinder
till you’re tender to the touch.
It’ll chase you down,
swallow you whole,
it’ll make your blood run hot and cold.
Like a thief in the night
it’ll steal your soul...
...and that’s a good thing.
Love is a good thing.
It’ll follow you down
to the ruin of your great divide,
and open the wounds that you tried to hide.
And there in the rubble of the heart that died...
...you’ll find a good thing.
Love is a good thing.
Take cover, the end is near.
Take cover, but do not fear.
It’ll break your will,
it’ll change your mind,
it’ll loose all the chains
of the ties that bind.
If you’re lucky you’ll never make it out alive...
...and that’s a good thing.
Love is a good thing.
It can hurt like a blast from a hand grenade
when all that used to matter is blown away.
There in the middle of the mess
it made you’ll find a good thing.
Yes, it’s worth every penny of the price you paid.
It’s a good thing.
Love is a good thing.
Do not fear.
