Someone Once Asked Me

Someone once asked me if I knew what love is
I only do now, but I always thought I did
Now I know, I’ll never let it escape me
I’ll allow it to grow, and see where it will take me.

I once let it go and now I find it so heart breaking
This dunce had to grow, and allow it to be his making
Now these eyes go to and fro searching for the same thing
Like a million eyes I know this searching can bring aching.

It’s a killer laying low, hurting while your waiting
Always thinking of the one let go, and how hard it will be replacing
I scarred her man I know, till she was done waiting
Then it hits a harder blow, when you know, you let her face the same thing.
