For the Sake of Love:

This time,

This place:

Another beginning, mayhap

I just hope there's one more left

We went farther,

We hurt each other,

We may never get past the last

We must try,

For the sake of love

Dreaming empty dreams,

Alone without you

I see you in another's light

The rose-colored glasses gone,

I still see you as a solid woman

With aspirations like anyone else,

But I also see how you stand on

Your own, with no help,

No guidance

We went farther,

We hurt each other,

We may never get past the last

We must try,

For the sake of love

I say not that we had it right,

That everything was satisfactory,

That is far from the truth

- And you know it

But this beating heart,

Is not whole without you

Every night, I cried alone

Knowing that society

Does not understand this

Does not wish too,

But I know

We went farther,

We hurt each other

We may never get past the last,

We must try,

For the sake love

I say not that life is wonderful for it

─ I doubt that, I doubt that greatly ─

Do you not see?

I am alive for the first time,

In all my life

Alit with hope,

Alit with love,

Alit with trust,

As I hand this heart of mine,

Into your keeping

Do not let me hurt you,

Do not hurt me

We went farther,

We hurt each other,

We may never get past last,

But we must try,

For the sake of love
