Introducing... Lionheart, not lying about misheard songs

IT is amazing how the spelling of a word can make such a difference.

Don't even get me started on grammar.

No, this is strictly about words; more specifically, song lyrics.

We've all misheard lyrics.

I still sing 'I love Cecile' instead of 'Our Lips Are Sealed,' when the Go-Go's song plays on the radio.

No longer in the single stakes, Supermum has found her Superman, so for the past two months I have noticed a lot more the emotion behind any song.

There is a song by Of Monsters And Men called King and Lionheart I have always liked.

Until recently I thought the words were Lying Heart.

Discovering the correct wording has made a whole difference to how I see the song.

As with any new relationship there is joy as love blossoms and grows, but there are always learning curves to encounter along the way.

With 'mature' relationships there are more hurdles to jump.

There are children and ex-partners that come into the mix, which sometimes makes for a tricky combination.

You have also experienced heartbreak that comes with past failed relationships, so the idea of starting again can be scary too.

That is where the King and Lionheart come in.

Instead of being scared to try again, we all need to be a Lionheart, to be brave and take a chance.

Why? Because when you take a chance on love you might just find someone who makes life more worth living.

Someone who makes you smile when you think of them.

Someone who makes you laugh with joy.

Someone who makes you want to be the best you can possibly be.

Alone we might feel that we are indeed strong enough, but when you come together you might find you are invincible.

None of that can happen if you don't take the chance.

Growing up I had great role models with both sets of grandparents who, even as they aged walked arm in arm, were tender and kind to each other and expressed their love.

That's what I wanted so I'm glad I kept looking.

I'm lucky to have found my Lionheart.
