You gotta spend some time love

Our shadowsHow I wish you could see the potential, the potential of you and me
It's like a book elegantly bound, but in a language that you can't read - just yet
You gotta spend some time--love, you gotta spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find--love, I will possess your heart

I am listening to the new Death Cab for Cutie Album. David pointed about the lyrics to this single a few weeks ago. I really like the line that I underlined.

I also really do think that love requires that you spend some time. I think David wishes it would have taken a little bit less time with me, but I was really scared. In the end our relationship has been all about spending time on things together, working through things together, and spending time having fun together. I don't know if I believe in instant love. I think there is instant connection, but that love and a working relationship are never this easy or instant thing. I feel like the value of a relationship has a lot to do with the time put into it.

And he does possess my heart.

Oh, I agree. It's totally a stalker song if you listen to the lyrics. Completely and totally.
