After a while you learn the subtle
differences between holding a hand
and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn’t
mean leaning and company
doesn’t mean security,
And you begin to learn that kisses
aren’t contracts and presents
And you begin to accept your defeats
with you head up and your eyes open,
with the grace of an adult,
not the grief of a child,
And you learn to build your roads
on today because tomorrows ground
is too uncertain for plans
After a while you learn that even
sunshine burns if you get too much.
So plant your own garden and decorate
your own soul, instead of waiting
for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can
endure…that you really are strong.
And you really do have worth.
Just tonight i will stay and we’ll throw it all away
And if I, I am through, Then its all because of you
Just tonight I wont leave , and I’ll lie and you’ll believe
Just tonight I will see that its all because of me.
