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
