Love Is Never Wasted

I am a fan of the band Coldplay. I think they are one of the best bands of the last 15 years or so. they have great music and lyrics which can cause one to reflect about life.

One of their best songs, in my opinion, is "Fix You" (video below). Even though I really like the song, I think it has a couple of lines a disagree with. One of them is "I will try to fix you". I don't want to get into the problems of trying to fix others, which I do all too often, but I will say it doesn't ever work.

But, the bigger issue is with the following:
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?
Love is never wasted. Love is a gift to another person and will be good for both the one who is loved and the one who loves. Loving another person fulfills what we are made for. Our love is always going to be put to good use by God, as long as we allow him to change our hearts in the process.

Just a thought.
