But what if?

Falling in love is where the what if comes into play.

A state where one sees with clarity. Unclouded reality.

But there are things which cloud this vision...

Desires - if you are filled with desires - sight is impeded because your accurate perception of reality is clouded by the things you crave, things you have to have, things you need...etc -

Fears - the things you fear will certainly prevent you from seeing true reality - you are almost blind because of fears...

Beliefs - your beliefs - a belief is a CONCLUSION - in most cases - people erroneously believe that their beliefs are rock solid facts and that their beliefs make them correct - when in reality - truth is fluid and reality is ever-changing and if you have fixed beliefs you might miss truth when it is right in front of your eyes...

Prejudice - we pre-judge everything large and small and these prejudices prevent us from seeing because we are looking at things from memory - to see unclouded reality - we must see things afresh in this present moment - not from our memory of them or from our labels/categories we have created on almost everything

So, as one of my songs I wrote many years ago says...

Drop your desires...
Understand your darkest fears...
Get loose from your beliefs...
Expose your prejudice...

Only then will you see -
An UNclouded reality
To love is to see...yes..to love is to see...

just this old geezers take...

"Never did feel this way before
Never did get up and walk the floor
If this is love then give me more
And more
And more"

The Love that can be defined is not Love but Randy Newman thinks he knows what Love is.
