There are a million songs about unrequited love, about how it hurts. But she's grateful for unrequited love, and wishes she can teach the skill. What skill? The ability to focus amid the dissonance. See, if one's declaration of love isn't reciprocated, there's a world of pain that's dodged. Have you watched Flowers? Deborah suggests to her husband, Maurice, that maybe love is the answer to his sadness. And Maurice says that love makes his sadness worse. The catch to the upside of unrequited love, however, is that it can be addictive. As everything. You go through life dodging pain.
