Life holds so many questions which can mystify the soul
love is the only answer i've ever understood
to feel you know another's heart will make you feel you're whole
but assuming that you own love means you only wish you could
to lose a heart you never owned can leave your soul tormented
there's nothing makes you sadder than a lying "i love you"
you pay with everything you are, which means the heart was rented
yet, still, would gladly pay again to find a heart that's true
so if there is a lesson here why do i never learn?
i keep on making payment but the debt is always due
still playing with fire, as if a child, i always end up burned
the price is too demanding for an honest "i love you"
once i had an honest love whose heart was truly mine
the beauty of our union was destroyed by tragedy
in later years her angel's heart returned to leave a sign
to let me know... when i return... she's waiting there for me
i feel, at times, so young at heart and yet so very old
that the prospect i may love again seems like futility
i promised once to try again to find a heart to hold
but if i fail, an angel will be waiting, still... for me
