Over email, I received a video of Rod Stewart’s version of “Have I Told You Lately That I Love You” song with Jesus Christ all over the video.  This is a more accurate representation of the song as written by Van Morrison.

The song is actually widely considered to be about Van Morrison's relationship with God and religious convictions.  Instead of Rod Stewart’s version on romantic love.

It’s amazing how we can turn any thing into “romantic” love.  We are obsessed with “eros” love.  

My song “Tell Me” — tell me what you want — is often mistaken for eros love.  This video was the idea of the director, not mine.  I didn’t correct him on his interpretation of the meaning of the song.  I figure, if we’re ready to hear, or experience spiritual love, then: we shall experience just that.
