Ooh now and that’s it

Love is often placed by some of my favorite artists in either one of the two ends of the relationship continuum: ecstatic joy or unavoidable pain. Both depictions please me immensely.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about this issue, and Antony‘s lyrics in Epilepsy is Dancing speak straight to my heart:

Cut me in quadrants
Leave me in the corner
Cut me in quadrants
Leave me in the corner

Ooh now, it’s passing
Ooh now, I’m dancing
Ooh now, it’s passing
Ooh now, I’m dancing

To be honest, I thought the last part went: Ooh now and that’s it. How appropriate.

And here’s the video with the entire song:

There is virtually no love without suffering.
