8 The Message Monthly m for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana --- On The Record--- Fear restrains trust in others WILL YOU BE THERE? I'm lying beside you/Just thinking about us/Too tired to go to sleep/And too much in love/I know I'm crazy/But I can't close my eyes/I'm worried you won't be there/In the morning when I risedWill you be there?/Who do you dream about?/Are you alone in your sleep?/To whom will you reach out?/Oh, let it be me/Oh, baby you're my obsessionMy addiction, my drug/Don't want to be without you/When I wake up. CNS COLUMNIST I (REFRAIN) Will you be there in the morning?. /Will you be there when I want you?/Will you be there when I wake up?/Oh, I need you to be there/In the morningJWill you be there? Well you are so close to me/But I feel so alone The more I touch you/The more I want/Don't know what to do/About me loving you/But I pray to God/That you feel it too/You're my ob- session/My addiction, my drug/So let the can- die grow/Into a great fire of love. (REPEAT REFRAIN) Wanna love you forever/Don't want a love/That is now or never/Can't you see that you've got me/Down on the floor/I want more, more. (REPEAT REFRAIN) Written by Robert John "Mutt" Lange Sung by Heart Copyright (c) 1993 by Out of Pocket Productions Ltd., Zomba Music Publishers Ltd., Capitol Records Inc. Heart's new CD is titled "Desire Walks On." Climbing the charts off this disc is their cassingle "Will You Be There?" If you are looking for advice on how to build a successful relationship, you'd best look elsewhere. Perhaps the song is meant as a parody of ro- mance. Whatever its intent, the song serves as an apt description on how not to have a relationship, that is, unless you want to be bonkers! The girl in the song sees her partner as "my ob- session, my addiction, my drug." She asks him: "Who do you dream about? "Are you alone in your sleep?" Clearly, this woman has not learned that trust is fundamental for love to be real and lasting. While there is nothing to take seriously in the song, it does raise this question: What should one do when being overcome by feelings of jealousy and possessiveness? Jealousy may be natural but it is rarely helpful. Behind most jealous feelings lies fear. The fear may never be expressed directly, but it often acts to control another and the direction of the relation- ship. Control takes all the fresh air out of love, leaving romance with a stale, stifled future. i" iii If you find yourself acting in jealous, ways toward another, look clearly at Be honest. Try to identify the fear that your trust. After some time of honest, clear your thoughts and concerns with your ner. This might be scary, for one could feel nerable.
