Love is the gentle smile on the lips of beauty...

Paradise is just a state of mind...

                           What now?

Well, what now, fool? so, where do you go from here?

Lost on the way to where? Don't know, path's unclear

You had to know it'd happen, you've sure been here before.

You can't pass thru the portal unless you've opened the door

Can't just ease into love, take it slow and protect your heart

Can't hold back a part of you, to lean on when the pain starts

Can't you learn to hold back a bit of yourself, and still keep it real

To put your faith in your good judgement, not "how good it feels"?

Brace yourself for the heartache, when she drops you flat on your face

Cause she's only playing with your love, you're a "rest-stop" in her race

When she's done with you she'll be gone, there you'll sit alone and lost

You gotta learn to protect your heart, keep it safe whatever the cost

You love the girl, and you want her, and your reasons are pure and true

That's good, my friend, but it means nothing if the lady doesn't want you

"Put it all on the line" and "risk it all", is fine when you are young and strong

But to put at risk, your heart, mind and soul right now can only be wrong

It takes so long for a tender heart to heal, and the pain will cut to the bone

It can shatter your world, squash your spirit, You're safer just staying alone

The lonliness that now drives you, and the empty longing for love that you hate

Could put your life in a tailspin send you whirling, right through hells front gate

Be careful, songman, go slowly, take care of your heart and watch what you do

The terrible longing for love can cut like a knife, but losing a love does too...

                               THE TRUTH

WELL, JUST ABOUT NOW IS WHEN I START TO CHOKE

AS I REALIZE IT'S SO LATE, AND JUST GIVE UP HOPE

ONCE AGAIN YOU TOLD ME, LOOKING INTO MY EYES

"I'LL BE THERE"...KINDLY DECEPTION? OR JUST LIES?

SO I'M ALWAYS LEFT TO WONDER, AS IT HAPPENS AGAIN

DO YOU LIE SO I WON'T ASK YOU HOW, WHY, OR WHEN?

OR DO YOU REALLY THINK IT PROTECTS MY BROKEN HEART

WHEN TIME AFTER TIME, WHAT YOU TELL ME FALLS APART?

WHY CAN'T YOU JUST BE HONEST WITH ME AND LAY IT ALL OUT?

CAN'T YOU SEE MY PAIN WILL NEVER END, I'M ALL FULL OF DOUBTS

PLEASE...THE TRUTH CAN'T HURT US NOW, LET THE LIES FALL

IF THE LOVE'S GONE, OK, TRUST AND RESPECT CAN HEAL US ALL

C'MON, BABY, DON'T TELL ME YOU WILL IF YOU AIN'T GONNA

DON'T GET MY HOPES UP FOR NOTHING...SAY YOU DON'T WANNA

TRUST ME TO DEAL WITH THE TRUTH, NO MATTER WHAT IT IS

I'VE HANDLED ALL THAT'S HAPPENED, FOR OVER FIFTY YEARS

IT'LL TEAR ME UP TO LOSE YOU, BREAK MY HEART, THAT'S FOR SURE

I'LL CRY OVER YOU AND I'LL MISS YOU, BUT SOMEHOW I'LL ENDURE

I DON'T EXPECT LIFE TO GIVE ME EVERYTHING I MAY DESIRE

BUT, IN THE END, I'VE LIKELY FALLEN LOWER AND RISEN HIGHER

SURE, I LOVE YOU SO, AND IT HURTS LIKE HELL TO LOSE YOU

BUT I KNOW IF IT HAPPENS, IN TIME I'LL KNOW WHAT TO DO

IF I CAN SEE IT'S FOR THE BETTER, CAN TRUST IN WHAT YOU TELL ME

THEN WE'LL HAVE CLOSED IT OUT WITH HONOR, RESPECT AND DIGNITY...
