Love a Never Ending Game
Tears of joy, tears of pain
Love is a never ending game
Take my hand, take my heart
Hold me tight, in the dark of night
Kiss my lips with all your passion
Take hold of me with all emotions
Your love is all I desire; my heart is so on fire
What is this game you play that tortures me this way
One minute you find the beauty that I bestow
I see the beauty of your soul, and then you turn away
Once you have had your way
Is it for that other one you crave; the one who holds sway over you?
Why if you want that person so, do you torture me so?
Why cause these tears of joy, and tears of pain
Please let me go if am not the one that will hold your love!
This life I live is complex in many ways
Your strength has been a way to keep me grounded
But your deception leaves me in dismay; I lose all focus and all purpose of the day
What is this game you play; you must choose your way
I will not live this way; my life, my soul must be my own
If that person is who you desire, please leave me now
So that my path will lead me to a place of peace
A place where my heart can heal, a place where my soul can be renewed with the energy to live
Love like this I may never find again, but the freedom from your dominations will give flight to me, so set me free so I can live again
No more tears of joy, no more tears of pain
Unchain my heart
Lift up my spirit
Take your other lover and leave me be!
