When you take the plunge
But the waters too deep

Or the silver lining of a cloud
has turned to rain

What if a book
had no cover?

Or you had no socks to pull up

Or if your troubles
won't all fit in your kit bag

What if they can't find the right lock for the children who are the key to the future?

What if laughter
doesn't cure them?

And a thousand words
don't paint a picture

Or crying solved world hunger

Maybe wishes on a star
don't really come true

And we need more than a dream that is really a wish our heart makes

Or maybe saying something mean is better than saying nothing at all

But one thing that would tear me apart

Would be to learn that the path of true love
runs smooth for those who it's true for

Because to me loves not all the splendour it's cracked up to be
