It burns in my eyes

It burns in my head

The thought of your happiness

fills me with dread

That my life is over

That my life is thru

For how can I ever

Live without you?

It's love in my heart,

Somewhere beneath it all

It's love that I dream of

Even when I fall

And when the night comes down

And all I see is dust

My hopes were tied up in your hands

And you have broken that trust

Don't hang out with me

If you can't stand the heat

Of who I am

And what I want

It's not the kitchen sink

To be soft and warm

to be hard and cold

To be hope for others

To be the one who's grown old.
