Borderless Love

Walls of thunder, skies of blue / Above, The Walls of Jericho
Thanks to my good friend Charlie from Prescott, Arizona for sending this song by the Flatlanders.
Listen to their song Borderless Love.
The words are so especially relevant right now.
__________________________
Walking the line between pleasure and pain
Biding my time between loss and gain
I’ve run out of roads, I’ve traveled them all
Down at the border by the one-sided wall
Down at the border, facing that wall
Racking my brain for the cause of it all
No one to point to, no one to blame
I can’t be the only one stuck in this game
Borderless love, the land of the free
Borderless love, how far can you see?
Borderless love, there’s no border at all
In a borderless love there’s no need for a wall
When I feel what I feel, when I see what I see
Why do my heart and my head disagree?
A one-sided wall, is it all in the mind?
Who can see more than one side at a time?
A wall is a mirror that can only reveal
One side of a story that passes for real
But break it all down, it all becomes clear
It’s the fearless who love and the loveless who fear
Borderless love, the land of the free
Borderless love, how far can you see?
Borderless love, there’s no border at all
In a borderless love there’s no need for a wall
Over, under, around and through
Life is love and love is true
Over, under, around and through
Walls of thunder, skies of blue
