Can you guess what song these lyrics come from?

The lyrics I listened to while scrubbing the hell out of the bathrooms:

---------------------------------------------------
Ah...
Tell me we can stay
Tell me we can stay oh please...
They are the words to say
The only words I can believe...
Hold me in your arms
For just another day
I promise this one will go slow
Ohhh...
We have the right you know
We have the right you know
---------------------------------------------------

I like the sound of those words. We have the right. We have the right. Those words move me.

This is how I keep my sanity during hours and hours of cleaning. I keep telling myself, this is for my beloved. No one I love or care about is going to be welcomed into a dirty bathroom. This is for my beloved.

And then I sing the lyrics along with the tape as I scrub...

I promise this one will go slow.
We have the right you know.
We have the right you know.

Hmm...

... in my case, the project was finishing up college, and the song was Bjork, _Hyper-ballad_... same thought, though.

Re: Hmm...

I have never heard that Bjork song. How is it the same?

Re: Hmm...

The sense of, "I'm doing this thing, even though I don't really want to be doing it, because I'm building something; something that's going to be valuable to me, and something for the person I'm going to eventually marry, even though I don't know whom that will be."

I used to listen to the first two songs on the album (Post) on the way in to school every morning, at pretty high volume. In hindsight, I was probably more than a little depressed... listening to those helped a lot. (The song in question is the second).

Re: Hmm...

Ah yes. NOW I can relate. Not just this instance, but it my own history.

Haha, I torment my roommate sometimes with that song

I think the title is "The One that You Love". It is by Air Supply, Baby!

Re: Haha, I torment my roommate sometimes with that song

We have a winner! Yes, it's Air Supply. But don't tell anyone. I'm pretty sure my Goth card will be torn up for this offense.
