How Far Will You Go For Love

How far will you go for love
First maybe just a kiss then a hug but as emotions being to tug
your heart becomes a little looser
Hoping you'll never have to hear the truth of the matter

But your trying to hold it together
You're trying to hold on to your own values because people are trying to sway you
But never
Never say never because
Then never becomes
I'd never thought I'd be here
Fallin so deeply in love
That I need you so near
Drowning in emotions
You'd thought you'd never shed these tears
Guess life showed you different
Conflicting emotions
That's what I call indifferent
Because now your back is up against the wall
& everybody is secretly hoping that you'll fall
Face first
Hands buried in the dirt
But you won't let them see you down
Or see you frown
Because you're stronger than that
But you fall victim to the fact that you want so badly to be touched not physically but emotionally
to find someone who knows how to satisfy your deepest desire
Or more so to inspire your heart that is heavy & refuses to love

But you find yourself between his sheets
Wondering how you fell this deep
& how you lost the sanity you were trying so hard to keep
Tell your friends everything was okay
When they were trying so hard to reach you
But you ignored them all
Later realizing how far you'd fall

So How far will you go for love
First it's maybe just a kiss then a hug but as emotions being to tug
your heart becomes a little looser
Hoping you'll never have to hear the truth of the matter

& even though you say it doesn't matter
You know the truth
Secretly hoping to find love more than anything
Waiting for the day you find security in a ring
That will hold it all together
No matter the weather
For better or for worse
Hoping that once your decision is made
You'll have no remorse
Hoping to find the source of your hidden pain
But you've locked it all away
But one day you'll have to expose yourself
Because one day someday you'll be loving someone beside yourself
& they'll be looking at you
Or more so looking into your deeper being
So you can lock it all away but one day
There will be a day when you'll have to stand on your own
Better yet you'll be standing alone
You'll have to love yourself instead of loving someone else
Because the someone is there to complement you
Not enhance & work miracles upon you

So ask yourself . . How far will you go for love
First it's maybe just a kiss then a hug but as emotions being to tug
your heart becomes a little looser
Hoping you'll never have to hear the truth of the matter

Because it's real easy to want love
But not many are willing to work for , hurt for it, & try for it or better yet strive for it
Love isn't a winner takes all but it's about who is willingly to give their all
Because you're either all in or your out
You either know where your headed or fall in to unconscious doubt
By then your headed south on a road you can't recover
But at the end of the day I can't tell what is sadder that we long for love
Or that we long for love but can't love ourselves

So ask yourself , how far will you go for love.
