Richard Carpenter, John Bettis

I know I need to be in love
I know I’ve wasted too much time
I know I ask perfection of
A quite imperfect world
And fool enough to think that’s
What I’ll find

    I Need to Be in Love

    by The Carpenters

    written by Richard Carpenter and John Bettis

    The hardest thing I’ve ever done
    Is keep believing
    There’s someone in this crazy world
    For me
    The way that people come and go
    Thru temporary lives
    My chance could come and I might never know

    I used to say “No promises,
    Let’s keep it simple”
    But freedom only helps you say
    Good-bye
    It took a while for me to learn
    That nothin’ comes for free
    The price I’ve paid is high enough for me

    I know I need to be in love
    I know I’ve wasted too much time
    I know I ask perfection of
    A quite imperfect world
    And fool enough to think that’s
    What I’ll find

    So here I am with pockets full
    Of good intentions
    But none of them will comfort me
    Tonight
    I’m wide awake at four a.m.
    Without a friend in sight
    Hanging on a hope but I’m alright

    I know I need to be in love
    I know I’ve wasted too much time
    I know I ask perfection of
    A quite imperfect world
    And fool enough to think that’s
    What I’ll find

    Wabi-sabi

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wabi-sabi

    Wabi-sabi represents a world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent and incomplete.”

    一時的であること、はかなさ、無常、移ろいやすさ。。。

    不完全であること、永続でも永久でもなく、完成にはほど遠い。。。
