For love lost and shattered hope,
First a broken heart, now a length of rope.
How much pain can one heart take
When day after day it continues to break.
Happiness evades me, peace cannot be found,
Sometimes in my sorrow I feel I will drown.
If only I could turn back time
I would find a way to keep love mine.
That this would happen I could not see
Sometimes love stays, sometimes it flies free.
Tears fell for a while but now they run dry,
No matter how sad I cannot cry.
So long have I kelp my emotions tied
That now a part of my soul has died.
From songs of despair to songs of love
From sorrow below to hope above,
I fear that happiness I'll not find again
Before I meet my final end.
Thou I hate this pain that ebbs with each breath
Which do I fear most, is it life, is it death.
My dreams may remind me of happier times
But then I awake and always find -
