P love


I have never doubted the value of platonic friendships (love) between men and women. As traditional gender lines become blurred, it seems increasingly apparent that division by gender is a ridiculous cultural notion to begin with. This past week I had many conversations with someone I would consider a good friend. He felt that it was often in natural for men and women to have quality platonic relationships (our relationship being, more or less, the exception), and I feel that’s a shame. I think of all the incredible people who will never meet and develop friendships because they are self-limiting, and I think we could do better and be better for it 🤝

Boy, you never saw the light in a woman’s eyes  with whom you wouldn’t spend the night 

You say it’s the way that things have always been 

But if you want, guess I’m here to be your exception Your exception  

Just let me love love love love 

The way I love love love love 

And if you love love love love 

The way I love love love love 

You’ve found a friend 

You’ve found a friend  

And when I think of what you’re missing 

The words from lips that you’d rather be kissing 

I don’t envy you at all 

The love you won’t accept makes the world so, so small  

Just let me love love love love 

The way I love love love love 

And if you’d love love love love 

Just a little love love love love  

I’ll be there in your darkest hour 

Don’t underestimate the power of platonic love 

I know, it’s like picking a flower 

You wanna own it, but then it’s dead and gone

  Oh, my my love love love love 

Just let me love love love love 

The way I love love love love 

And then you’ll see my my my love 

You’ve found a friend
