Where's this love you talk about?

currently: listening to "Do You Love The Ones That Look Like You" by Molly Jenson and Jon Foreman off the album Maybe Tomorrow

"Are you lonely?
Are my scars too deep?
Or do you have them too?
Or do you only love the ones who look like you?"
[Do You Only Love The Ones Who Look Like You? - Molly Jenson and Jon Foreman]

Love.
Something I don't understand.

There was a time where I thought I was in love. When colours looked so much brighter. Whenever I closed my eyes, he was there to hold me. I got warm chills everytime he was near.
But then, I was told it wasn't love. I was only 14.

I find myself thinking of what love is all over again. Like, love, lust, and everything inbetween. Nothing seems black and white anymore. It's a big fat grey lump of confusion. (Because if confusion was any colour, it would be grey.)
And so when I'm in confusion - the lyrics and poetry come out.

I want to know you.
I want to hear your words.
I like being close, but I want to be clear.
There's not enough clarity for me.

If people fall in love
I just keep tripping over.
There's a weak bridge, there's unstability.
I can't say I'm head over heels with this.

I just don't know the signs anymore.
Messing with emotions, all on a stir.
Everything is unclear, I'm never sure.
Understanding this, understanding you.
Teach me something new.

There is no way to explain myself.
But then there is no way to explain what's going on.
I just really don't understand love.
