Song Description

You don't truly appreciate love until you had to love without all the pleasantries, when there's no money, when they smell bad, when you are both unhappy. If you still love each, then it's settled. That to me is truth.

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this song as a tribute to Pop Standards, and great American songwriters like George and Ira Gershwin

Lyrics

Gershwin (A.Jacobs)
Puppy love is too shallow
Infatuations gradually fade away
Trueness of the heart is stronger than feeling
Affairs shouldn't be taken lightly

You never had a true love until you've seen them in their drawers or at their their weakest, lowest moments or when they've acted out of character
Then you begin to realize
This ain't no game darlin', this one's for life

chorus
All else is clay, but our love is here to stay
I guess Gershwin said it best
So how do you test your mettle?
When the dust clears, who's left?
Only you and me honey, we've settled

Crushes are just that, none too subtle
And lust only lasts for so long
Full commitment takes some special people
Willing to obey their vows

You ain't really had a true love until you've washed some dirty laundry or helped them get well when they were sick Then you begin to understand That no matter what, this one's for keeps

chorus

Gershwin knew what he was talking about True love is hard to find Don't take that love for granted Embrace it (mama) Come to papa do
