Norah Jones – "What Am I To You?" / Newton's Third…

“To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction…”
-Newton’s Third Law of Motion

A friend of mine recently devoted a post to the value of friendship. Personally, I can’t bear to offer more energy into a relationship than that which I am given in return. That is not to say we should not do good for the sake of doing good. It’s just that, after awhile, the lack of a favorable response becomes exhausting. It’s nice to get something back. Something to show the hope was not in vain. An equal reaction in the opposite direction…

What am I to you?
Tell me darling true
To me you are the sea
Vast as you can be
And deep the shade of blue

When you’re feeling low
To whom else do you go
See I cry if you hurt
I’d give you my last shirt
Because I love you so

If my sky should fall
Would you even call
Opened up my heart
I never want to part
I’m giving you the ball

When I look in your eyes
I can feel the butterflies
I love you when you’re blue
Tell me darling true
What am I to you

Could you find a love in me
Could you carve me in a tree
Don’t fill my heart with lies

I will you love when you’re blue
Tell me darling true
What am I to you…

Someone who insists on being there even during the hardest of your times… Maybe it’s selfishness or an issue of self-worth. I personally need the reciprocity to show me it’s not just empty words I’m getting back. Anyway, that’s just me…
