lyrics

At first,
You’re all anticipation:
When will he call?
Is she the one?
Where could this lead?

At first,
It’s all exhilaration!
Starting to fall . . .
Gathering speed . . .

And you’re flying!
Reaching!
Soaring!
Drowning in happiness!
Dreaming!
Risking all!
Now that you’re falling in love!

In time,
A love begins compounding
Through all the things
That bring you close;
Making you more.

With time,
A love becomes astounding!
Like wings . . .
Helping you soar . . .

And you’re trusting.
Sharing.
Growing.
Helping through compromise.
Building.
Giving all.
Finding a partner in love.

But still,
Your passion can forsake you
When tensions start to grow.
Frustrations overtake you.
Emotions overflow.
And ‘though you don’t mean to,
Your tempers can blow . . .

And you’re shouting.
Straining.
Pleading.
Glaring through arguments.
Fighting.
Losing all.
Reaching the bound’ries of love.

Losing.
Coping.
Aching.
Tortured by loneliness.
Grieving.
Letting go . . .

So now,
‘Though many things remind you
Of what you’ve lost;
Things gone awry --

Have faith,
‘Cause someone new may find you.
And when they do . . .
Maybe you’ll try . . .

And you’re healing.
Seeking.
Dreaming.
Choosing to risk again.
Hoping.
Moving on . . .
For love!
