Afraid to love;
It is a tremendous burden to bear,
To have somebody.
Afraid to lose,
It is a pain unlike any other,
The soul’s malady.
Happiness is a precarious possession,
To a heart soon to be destitute of love.
For there is a fate worse than death
To live, but never whole again for another breath.
One moment he was safe and sound.
The next one they laid him to the ground.
And they called it fate.
To which we men are bait
Sometimes life without them is impossible
Fate taking them away is unforgivable
And it’s like nobody cares
When you’re lost in one of your worst nightmares
Nothing’s forever maybe you can pretend
For the beginning of everything there is an end
Once a man has crossed life’s stages
He becomes one with the ages
At one point we’ve got to move on
This one life isn’t for long
Don’t ever think they’ve just disappeared
They’re right there in your every tear!
