I don’t want sin for a season, I want love for a lifetime.
It is a curious thing, this thing we call love.
We think we find someone who seems to fit us like a glove
We enjoy them, they enjoy us
We laugh, we cry, we feel,
there is give , there is take
We give in, we walk away, we come back again
There is love between us, yet the love cannot be allowed to grow
Cause the ground is shallow yet, too many rocks, to many stones
This man I have fallen in love with.
I tried to save my heart
He has allowed me in for a little while, for how long I do not know
He reaches out, he does not want to let me go
So I wait, yet I want to move on, do not want to waste my time
I feel him, I feel his heart, I hear his words
Conveying to me there is something deeper
Something more real, more concrete, more strong
Not willing to allow it to just fade this song in his heart
So I will wait for a little while, I will see if the waves will recede.
Not in a rush, waiting, Not running nor retreating.
