Mensagem:  This love has taken its toll on me....

One, the song composer perhaps, envisions or envisioned "this love" not as one arising from a perfect relationship but as one that somehow caused him trouble, made him feel bad for as long as it lasted. Thus, his choosing and then using that particular idiom in his lyrics. For judging it proper at least. Or befitting the occasion.

Does explaining away at it ever have a chance of helping?
