Love in vain

Dear you



They say Robert Johnson made a deal with the Devil. He gave his immortal soul for the blues. I cannot sleep these past few days: I have nothing to smoke and my sweet dreams have been washed down the drain you opened for them. So I lie awake and think about what I would give the Devil for my half of the deal. And I think, so long as he gives me love, what's a soul to me?

ITA with this. If you don't have love, your soul is worthless. I'd give it up for a few bars of Bach, because it's of no use to me.

But I part from you in that I don't think anyone, God or devil, can give you love. God knows he can't, and that's why he invented Jesus.
