"You Have Your Reasons"



Well you gave me all your reasons
And I tried to understand.
And now you walk away
Leaving your footprints in the sand.
We travelled here together
And now you leave alone,..
Would I have ever come here
If Iíd known?
It took so long to get here,
Now in this desert far from home.
Would I have ever come here
If Iíd known?

~

So long ago, it fades in time, I fell in love again.
It didnít seem to matter then, it happened just the same.
I heard the warning voices in my mind.
I felt the call of memories long since left behind,
But still I put my heart in trust with you
Not caring it might be a careless thing to do.
And every night we spent in laughter,
Never questioned what might be.
I held you close till I could feel you
Even when you werenít with me.
And I could trust you not to burn me
Even with the fire of passion.
Everyone I knew was saying
Love was going out of fashion
But I didnít care,Ö
As long as you were there,Ö

~

Suddenly the fire has faded nothing more to say.
I didnít see what happened, it happened anyway.
The warning voices now are silent in the air.
I would call out to question, but thereís nothing there.
I built my life around my love for you
Not caring it might be a careless thing to do.
Everywhere you touched me now
Burns like hell.
Every precious moment now
Recalled too well
They said that you were dynamite, I lit your fuse,
Now look whatís happened to me, whatís the use?
My life has blown apart,..
But still itís this,..
Iíd sacrifice it all
For just one more kiss,..
