Slave to the Soul
by   TDO

I wanted just to be with her, to sit and talk alone
I hoped to take her hand in mine, and hoped a love would grow
I thought of kissing her soft lips and feeling her hand in mine
I dreamed of spending my days with her until the end of time

A slave to my soul I'll always be
Never doing what's safe and right
I'll be loving her for the rest of my life
on my mind each day and night

I knew her past held memories- of things I'd never learn
I knew her mind was not made up and that I might get burned
I put my guard up, once or twice, and tried to keep her away
I tried to run, I tried to hide but I kept thinking about that face
I had to give another chance, for what was meant to be
I exposed to her to my everything, my love was plain to see

A slave to my soul I'll always be
Never doing what's safe and right
I'll be loving  her for the rest of my life
each day and every night

She seemed to be having second thoughts after I explained it all
She seemed to be wanting someone els,e even after watching me fall
I had never felt as wonderful as when she held me near
I had never kissed a kiss so sweet that it took away my fear

She treated me with cruelty
and inconsiderate play
I saw it in her eyes- the lies
I saw them every day
The logical side of me would step in
and tell me to get away
and then my heart would interrupt
and love would make me stay

A slave to my soul I'll always be
Never doing what's safe and right
I'll be loving  her for the rest of my life
in my soul each day and night
