Who Knew?

Love

Who knew that love could feel like this?
Honey, I’ll never tire of the way you light my fire
I’ve always read about the passion and the bliss,
But found myself alone, filled with an aching desire

For so long, I’ve been scared to death of falling in love
I’ve been afraid of the weakness it’s given me before
In the past, it seems, I’ve always been easy to get rid of
Finding someone who would stay was too much to ask for

But I don’t feel that way with you, my dear
You said you’re not going anywhere, and I’m trusting you
I’m safe in your arms and I don’t have anything to fear,
And you show me a side of love that I’ll never get used to

See, your caring, gentle soul simply astounds me
You’re my perfect man, what I’ve always dreamed of
My heart was locked in a gilded cage, but you’re holding the key
And the door opens wider with every admission of your love

Who knew that love could be an adventure?
One that’s filled with laughter and brimming with delight
We have so many journeys to undertake, of that I’m sure
So many songs to sing and great novels to write

Darling, I’m always going to be here by your side
Whether we’re walking through forests or resting in each other’s arms
I’ll heal your heart and dry every tear you’ve cried
I’ll never let anyone hurt you, I’ll keep you safe from all harm
