The Truth In Love
Can you not see the hurt in her eyes,
It comes with every new tomorrow.
Don't you see if you leave her reaching for you at arms length,
her heart screaming your name,
your relationship can and will never be the same?
A wild rose is your love,
beautiful yet piercing -
longing to be tame.
For this are you willing to surrender your precious fame?
So you see it isn't all that it's cracked up to be,
romance and poetry.
When you wake in a cold sweat because she isn't there.
You reach for the phone -
suddenly there's no one to call.
Was it really worth your one kiss love affair?
The relentless pain inside your empty heart.
The girl on the other side of the room
from whom you thought you'd never part.
So now you know -
Though you'll never admit it.
There's nothing worse than a broken heart.
