We all know love can bring joy and pain. Is it worth it? Pondering that very question.
Love's rush came like a summer storm
I couldn't have stopped it if I tried
Friends forgotten in the tempest of new love
Like being carried away by the tide

Promises made that were soon forgotten
Won over by another's charms
Blinded by love that knew no bounds
To last forever in each others arms

Falling in love with her was so easy
Letting go without fear of what might be
Head first with reckless abandon
It's only in hindsight that you see

Giving my love without any thought
A fool and his heart are soon torn apart
The darkness that came out of her light
I wish I had known who she was from the start

A case of want versus need
And what we had to offer each other
Isn't that what human instinct commands?
The search to find the perfect lover

But perfection is so very rare
And true love even less so
That doesn't stop a lonely heart searching
Desperate in hope, rather than taking it slow

But there are those who are not so inclined
They live for the chase, but not the prize
Heart breakers, soul stealer’s and players alike
Looking me straight in the eye as she told her lies

How can you know until it's too late?
Like a moth that flies into the flame
Easy pickings for someone so beautiful
And all to easy to point the finger of blame

When all I want is for this pain to end
Should I wish that I had never met her?
But then losing all of the memories
Of the good times that we had together

Love and broken hearts go hand in hand
It's enough to drive a person insane
To give up and spend the rest of our lives alone
Or get up, dust ourselves off and try again
