the pain of the past
lives in your eyes
and your face is full of sorrow.
you say you don’t think you can love again…
but i believe in tomorrow.
i believe the pain
will subside & disappear
as our hearts entwine together,
and we build our trust and open up…
and believe in one another.
i believe in a love
that’s so real it knows
that pain cannot live there,
that forgiveness and passion and tenderness…
are alive in this love that’s rare.
that the pain of your past
is washed away with my prayers
your walls – my embrace give a shove.
(and) i believe your heart will beat again –
as you’re surrounded in my love.
