Stop Hurting People
A love born once must soon be born again A plain that died, leaving cinders to be fanned By the wind and thrown flame Flames like tongues impassioned in a moment's burst Tell me, my friend, why do you stand aloof from your own heart? The truth confronts you, the truth confronts you as the sea Crushing with out detail Impassioned and detached Killing with love and power in God's name People, stop hurting people; people, stop hurting people Love conquers poses, love smashes stances, love crushes angels into black So you, without question, know your first love is your last And you will never, you never, never will, never love again I always wished to walk with her into restaurants (a clammy tale) To be seen beside her at the public bar foot rail I always wanted to be matched with her Yet her beauty was so different to mine My "beauty" needs an understanding and a knowledge of what I am Hers is enough earned through eons; for that is what true beauty is Time's gift to perfect humility May I be matched with you again I know the match is bad But God help me May I be matched with you again I know the match is bad But God help me May I be matched with you again I know the match is bad But God help me Without your match there is no flame People, stop hurting people People, stop hurting people People, stop hurting people People, stop hurting people
