Can You Let Love Take Control?

 

“Let Love Take Control” as sung by Hall & Oates

Letting love take control of your life can be a lesson in inability for many of us. We want to be in control. You want to be in control. They want to be in control. Some people do not want to be in control of themselves at all They choose to hover in the atmosphere….breathing in and breathing out without accomplishing not one task on any one day. So many people…so many personalities.

The doers and the non-doers…it seems like we might have more doers these days, but in a rather negative way. I would dare to call them control fanatics. In my way of thinking…you can only really take control of yourself.

 

*You can attempt to influence other people in positive ways, but there is no guarantee that they will listen. Therefore…you have no real control on someone else and their positive attitude.

 

*You can attempt to tell someone to gain control of their temper, but there is no guarantee that they will listen. Therefore…you have no real control on someone else and their temper.

 

*You can attempt to tell someone to strive to attain total self-control, but there is no guarantee that they will listen. Therefore…you have no real control on someone else and the extent of their self-control.

One solution is to…

“Let Love Take Control”

…as sung by Hall & Oates in the video at the top of this post. When I really began reading and listening to the lyrics, they made me stop and think how I feel about the meaning of control in our lives.

“Let Love Take Control”

 

I’m a soul surviving

Love give me all or nothing

I used to wake in the morning and say

Can I get through another day

Look around, I see everybody’s running

Trying too hard to make the money

But we forgot the taste of honey

Oh babe, can we lose the confusion

 

Let Love Take Control

Sweet Soul got a hold on me

Let Love Take Control

Sweet soul got a hold on me

 

Little things can get you down

Getting caught up in the run around

Gotta live in the here and now

Oh babe, gotta lose the confusion

 

Let Love Take Control

Sweet Soul got a hold on me

Let Love Take Control

Sweet soul got a hold on me

 

You can’t control your destiny

Love laughs at all your plans

Just let love show you what you need

You know I understand

Don’t let the weight lay too heavy on you

Gotta let it go, hold onto that sweet, sweet soul

 

Let Love Take Control

Sweet Soul got a hold on me

Let Love Take Control

Sweet soul got a hold on me.
