He loves playing guitar even if he can't play the chords just right.
She loves words but she's a slow reader.
He loves the rain even though he's afraid of thunder.
She loves running, no matter the distance.

He hurts her; she loves him anyway.

Protect your valley of freedom from those who wish to seize it from you.

So tight it chokes us
And he wonders why
I’m slipping away
