Happiness of Love – Run to My Lovin’ Arms

In most of these songs, the singer expresses “normal” affirmations of happiness. In others, however, the singer’s happiness is expressed in unusual ways: as a commitment to nothing more than one-night stands (“Baby I’m So Glad It’s Raining”), as an allegory of drug addiction (“The Habit Of Lovin’ You Baby”), as masochism if not madness (“Everything Under The Sun”), as the end of the singer’s own anguish (“A Good Love,” and “I Can Make It With You”), or as the way to end the anguish that the person the singer loves has suffered (“Turn To Me”).
