All in love is fair

……………………
A writer takes his pen
To write the words again
That all in love is fair

‘All in love is fair’ adalah satu dari 9 lagu Stevie Wonder dari album ‘Innervisions’ yang dirilis pada tahun 1973. Album keenam belas Stevie Wonder menyajikan aneka isu, dari soal penyalahgunaan obat terlarang, tentang kemarahan sosial, dan tentu sja tentang cinta. Seperti pada banyak album Stevie Wonder, lirik, komposisi, dan produksi hampir seluruhnya digarap sendiri. Selain itu juga penggunaan synthesizer yang belum cukup populer pada masa itu menjadikan album ‘Innervisions’ menjadi sorotan.

Satu hal lain yang lantas menjadikan album ini banyak dibincangkan adalah peristiwa yang mengikuti rilis ‘Innervisions’. Tiga hari pasca rilis, persisnya 6 Agustus 1963, dalam perjalanan sepulang konser di Greenville, Carolina Selatan, Wonder mengalami kecelakaan hebat. Selama empat hari ia berbaring dalam koma. Peristiwa ini menyedot perhatian media, teman, dan para penggemarnya.

All In Love Is Fair
by Stevie Wonder

All is fair in love
Love’s a crazy game
Two people vow to stay
In love as one they say
But all is changed with time
The future no one can see
The road you leave behind
Ahead lies mystery
But all is fair in love
I had to go away
A writer takes his pen
To write the words again
That all in love is fair

All of fate’s a chance
It’s either good or bad
I tossed my coin to say
In love with me you’d stay
But all in war is so cold
You either win or lose
When all is put away
The loosing side I’ll play
But all is fair in love
I should never have left your side
A writer takes his pen
To write the words again
That all in love is fair

A writer takes his pen
To write the words again
That all in love is fair
