Oh Love- how it sweeps in and grabs two hearts
It makes two souls never want to part
The excitement and wonder that feels the spirit
Negates any cynicism, it just won't hear it
There's courting, commitment, even marriage
Time brings a bundle in a baby carriage
Circumstances get harder and money gets tight
It often feels that nothing goes right
Words are spoken and feelings get sore
It just isn't the way it was before
The fighting gets frequent-- part of everyday life
He shuts down and she's a discontented wife
They both hurl around the word divorce
And after the battles, there's no remorse
The mind rules the ego and shuts down the heart
Husband and wife spend more time apart
Baby's in the middle; it's a cryin' shame
Mommy and Daddy are pointing the blame
Somthing's got to give, what will it be?
Could love be gone so completely?
Save it or leave it are the only two choices
Listen to your heart and no other voices.
