When relationships hit rough times we dis- cover if the love is real, When the pretense and the willingness to please fade, or when stressful situa- tions complicate our lives, then two people find out just how genuine their love is. The song reminds us that when hurt enters a relationship, "that is when we must start believing in the one thing that has gotten us this far." We need to ask ourselves: How can nay response be loving? Could love make a difference in how we get past this pain? The song suggests that we let love "melt our defenses" and "bring us back to our senses." This v Iii I,. 11 el2 JR lip 2.
