"You Have The Right to Remain Silent" by Perfect Strangers 1Perfect Stanger/pinterest.com

You have the right to remain silent
Anything that you say as I hold you against me
Will forever be a secret between us two
I’ve been wanting you but you didn’t know it
And now that he’s gone at last I can show it
If your heart is tired for the rest of your life
Lay your love on me…

An excerpt from the popular hit song of the band, Perfect Strangers. When everything falls wrong in the wrong place, expect for an emotional fallback. Nevertheless, everything will surely go back to the right place as long as your loved one is right beside you…

If everything goes wrong, love is the answer…

Just because you fall in love with someone doesn’t necessarily mean they’re a good partner for you to be with over the long term. Love is an emotional process; compatibility is a logical process. And the two don’t bleed into one another very well.

It’s possible to fall in love with somebody who doesn’t treat us well, who makes us feel worse about ourselves, who doesn’t hold the same respect for us as we do for them, or who has such a dysfunctional life themselves that they threaten to bring us down with them.

Moreover, it is possible to fall in love with somebody who has different ambitions or life goals that are contradictory to our own, who holds different philosophical beliefs or worldviews that clash with our own sense of reality.

Furthermore, it’s possible to fall in love with somebody who sucks and who also sucks our happiness.

That may sound paradoxical, but it’s true.

About the song…

Written by Brenda and Cal Sweat, “You Have the Right to Remain Silent” is a country song recorded by American country music group Perfect Stranger. It was released in February 1995 as the second single and title track from their album You Have the Right to Remain Silent. The song was their only Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, reaching number 4 in August 1995. It was also their only entry on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 61.

Check out and sing-along the lyrics of this song.

Can I have this dance my you’re looking pretty
Is there something wrong did he leave you hurting
I don’t mean to pry but that tear in your eye gave you away

If you don’t want to talk we’ll keep it quiet
But sometimes a heartache hurts worse if you hide it
I think there’s a chance one slow dance might ease the pain

You have the right to remain silent
Anything that you say as I hold you against me
Will forever be a secret between us two
I’ve been wanting you but you didn’t know it
And now that he’s gone at last I can show it
If your heart is tired for the rest of your life
Lay your love on me

So many times my eyes have held you
Tonight please give my arms that chance
If you don’t feel the need for conversation
We’ll just let our hearts talk while we dance

You have the right to remain silent
Anything that you say as I hold you against me
Will forever be a secret between us two
I’ve been wanting you but you didn’t know it
And now that he’s gone at last I can show it
If your heart is tired for the rest of your life
Lay your love on me
