Learned to love


I rendered love unselfishly,
But you're the one who cut me deep,
Tears of blood I bled inside,

With heartfelt hands I reached for you,
You turned your back and closed your eyes,
And left me here alone to cry,

Pre- chorus:

The sun will still rise and shine for me.
But Letting go is half to fight.


I never knew love til I lost it all,
Standing here waiting for my world to fall.

I never lived til I learned to love,
Cuz without love I know I'm lost again.

Learning to love is half the fight.

Verse 2:

I take my time in loving life,
For my days burn with joy for me,
Renewed strength I find inside,

All nature seems to acknowledge me,
As I fall into the bliss of love never known,
I'm alive and live with hope again.


So learn to love and learn to live,
And Take this life for what it is,
Learn to leap and learn to fly,
Letting go of whats inside,

The stars are out to touch your heart,
The galaxies that fill your world,
These dreams that will never die,
When you learn to love your life..
