The Only Love

 I can relate
 The story of my life
 No brighter hope
 No stronger emotion
 I believed I could die over you
 How you could ever
 Break down and never see me through
 Through my darkest night
 And as I lie awake
 One prayer within me burning
 And there's no price on what you hold
 Till it's gone
 And it keeps moving on
 Where is my heart
 You know I will be waiting to be
 A part of you
 You'll never feel the pain
 How can you say to me
 That I should go on living
 I left the only life I had with you
 The only love
 No use in me pretending to be
 A part of you
 And you the heart of me
 How can you say to me
 That I should go on living
 I left the only life I had with you
 So we agree
 To let each other go
 No long goodbye
 Just your way and my way
 And I can stand how you cried to be free
 High as the wind blows
 But not enough to bring you home to me
 And only lonely knows
 You see my open arms
 You know my flame is burning
 But I'm too blind to see the end has begun
 And it keeps movin' on
 The only love
 No use in me pretending to be
 A part of you
 And you the heart of me
 How can you say to me
 That I should go on living
 I left the only life I had with you
 The only love
 One love that will not die
 I may sorry that I built my
 World around you
 The only love
 Is only you and I
 There will be others who would
 Leave you as I found you
