You with the past at your back and the future unsure Asked for the chance to try love once more Well aware of the consequences should the dream fall through You threw down your last defenses wanting to try something new Wanting to try something new
You found me in a sea of confusion drifting with the tide Living on love that had long since died But every time that I touch you, baby I feel a little more alive And I'm reminded how much you've made me Believe in the love that survives You know, we must believe in the love that survives
Oh lessons learned are like bridges burned You only need to cross them but once Is the knowledge gained worth the price of the pain? Are the spoils worth the cost of the hunt? Are the spoils worth the cost of the hunt?
Borne on the first warm winds of feeling newly found Fly but remember don't look down Take as much as you think you ought to Give just as much as you can Don't forget what your failures have taught you Or else you'll learn them all over again Or else you'll have to learn them all over again
