I Was Not Meant For Love

I must try to hide my love
Keep it under lock and key
For I was not meant for love
And love was not meant for me

My love is everlasting 
Unlike the changing season
My passion is so intense
It goes beyond all reason

Better to be without it
To live without constant fear
That the one whom I adore
Will make these hazel eyes tear

It’s better to keep myself
Tightly under my control
Than to give myself away
To someone without a soul

I was not made for love
And love was not made for me
It’s a sad and damning truth
All the same, it sets me free

Instead of being a dreamer
With my head up in the cloud
I’m a converted realist
My heart’s covered in a shroud

I’m dead to life and to love
What I tell you is so true
I was not made to be loved
Unless I am loved by YOU!

    I hope that whoever YOU is gets his act together because I have no doubt that you are meant for love.
