A Young Fool's Lullaby
You are going to break my heart
You are going to tear me apart
You are going to play me like a fool
Through all of it I will die to keep my cool
You will laugh in my face, I swear it
Seeing the adoration in this young fool's eyes
You play me like a simple game
I dance to your tune
Even though I know you do not feel the same
Where is my sense, where is your compassion?
They say you give and you receive, I give you all I can
You give me scraps of your love
Believe me when I say you are my only man
Can I trust you as you trust me?
Is this all you give my darling?
If not to who do you give the rest of your affection?
Faraway across the sea you long for a stranger's kiss
Your eyes begin to wander as temptation breathes into your mind
Will you leave what I give behind
When you cannot fight any longer?
Will my memory stop making you stronger?
These are questions that have replaced the shadow o'th' earth
My darling how can I trust you when I see only shadows?
Show me your true self
If we are meant to be together I swear I will not leave you side
Prove to me that there is where you yearn for me to abide
I will stay forever if you only ask
Why do you hide behind a mask?
Are you afraid I will not accept you into my arms?
The mask you hide behind will push me away in time
I will be unable to stay
Please do not be afraid......I will not leave against you wishes
I am asking you to let me into your heart
Tis the lullaby I sing each sleepless night
