One Part Be My Lover
When he looks into her eyes He sees only the truth Telling him he's been living a lie over and over like a line in a song About all the love he let pass by. To her he might be the man of her dreams To find where she's been hiding inside Broken or battered, it really doesn't matter Her heart's like a wave and he's the tide. They're not forever they're just for today One part be my lover, one part go away. He's like a boxer who had to retire After winning but killing a man He's got all the moves and none of the courage Afraid to throw a punch that might land. Not too much later she can't meet his glance You see her start pulling away Over and over like fire and ice One is color, one is grey. They're not forever, they're just for today One part be my lover, one part go away. So if you know how Why don't you say'em a prayer They're need all the help they can get They remember too much about what went wrong It might be they should learn to forget. Forget themselves in each other And leave what belongs in the past Carry their hearts like a newborn child Cause it's only the moment that lasts. They're not forever,they're just for today One part be my lover,one part go away.
