This is a song about conditional love:
ARE WE LIVING HERE
"We played the flute but you did not dance,
We sang a dirge but you did not cry." (Matthew 11:16-17)
I'll give you this if you'll give me that
In the marketplace of conditional love.
Are we living here ?
Are we dying here ?
Are we ailing here ?
Are we crying here ?
They "love" the rich and the famous ones
They loathe the beggars and the homeless ones
I'll give you "love" if you are what I want
In the market ways of conditional hearts.
They "love" the pretty and talented ones
They loathe the hookers and the useless ones
I'll give you "love" if you do what I want
In the marketplace of conditional minds.
