So many reasons to be afraid
I think I just about gave up
until you came.
A leap of faith and beyond is what it takes
to make a victim stay,
Never knew love without conflagration;
it's a new flame with the promise of pain
doesn't blow up in my face.
Of the greatest passions I've known
there's a thin line between love and hate.
Never knew you would let me down
until you saw me as unreasonable
when all I wanted to do
was to turn this...
into something real.
Another lover is all you will be.
If the substance of your words
could match just one moment of our time together
love would be fertile ground
away from the quagmire of your lies.
Never knew I could fall
with a precedent set
that I could never know a love so strong -
if it were only in your arms I belonged.
Never knew why you were so resistant
never knew a feeling so unrequited
all of it leading
to your leaving tonight.
