Love Is Everything

Maybe it was to learn how to love

Maybe it was to learn how to leave

Maybe it was for the games we played

Maybe it was to learn how to choose

Maybe it was to learn how to lose

Maybe it was for the love we made

Love is everything they said it would be

Love made sweet and sad the same

But love forgot to make me too blind to see

You're chickening out aren't you?

You're bangin' on the beach like an old tin drum

I cant wait 'til you make

The whole kingdom come

So I'm leaving

Maybe it was to learn how to fight

Maybe it was for the lesson in pride

Maybe it was the cowboys' ways

Maybe it was to learn not to lie

Maybe it was to learn how to cry

Maybe it was for the love we made

Love is everything they said it would be

Love did not hold back the reins

But love forgot to make me too blind to see

You're chickening out aren't you?

You're bangin' on the beach like an old tin drum

I cant wait 'til you make

The whole kingdom come

So I'm leaving

First he turns to you

Then he turns to her

So you try to hurt him back

But it breaks your body down

So you try to love bigger

Bigger still

But it... it's too late

So take a lesson from the strangeness you feel

And know you'll never be the same

And find it in your heart to kneel down and say

I gave my love didn't I?

And I gave it big... sometimes

And I gave it in my own sweet time

I'm just leaving

Love is everything...
