HEAVY LOVE

I don't know what you're crying about lately
You feel it all
Did you feel me hanging
Haven't felt you in a long long time

It's time to see that time is changing
It's hard to know
If games are playing
Who can tell the truth when they're sitting in a lie

And everyone has spoken freely
Expert advice
When I'm the only one kneeling
Melancholy heart, can't say that I feel fine

Don't be so hard, 
Love
Don't be so heavy,
Love
Don't give up,
Love
Even on your last day
Don't be so scarred, 
Love
Don't be so very hard
To love

Head hung low, marred in disbelief
Even a cheater
Will judge a petty thief
Held hostage, while he's looking for something new.

How many times have you been empty-handed
Wind blew you down
Then asked why you're not standing
Freedom took more than it could offer you
.
Don't be so hard, 
Love
Don't be so far
Love
Don't give up
Love
Even in the middle of the pain
Don't be so necessary,
Love
Don't be so very hard
On love
