Shades of Abandoned Love

I can feel your hand upon my knee

Deceived once more by the clown inside of me

My head tells me it’s time to make a change

But my heart is screaming I need you, something strange

Love was found

Rekindled

And then lost

Sitting here trying to count

The cost

Of an abandoned love

Everybody’s wearing a disguise

To hide what they’ve got left behind their eyes

But me, I can’t cover what I am

Wherever the spirits go I’ll just follow them

Love was found

Rekindled

And then lost

Sitting here trying to count

The cost

Of an abandoned love

I’ve given up the game, I’ve got to leave

The pot of gold is only make-believe

The treasure can’t be found by men who search

Whose gods are dead and buried deep within the church

Love was found

Rekindled

And then lost

Sitting here trying to count

The cost

Of an abandoned love

We sat in an imaginary place and we kissed

I asked you please to cross me off your list

You looked at me with a smile upon your lips

Your heart it heaved towards me in another script

Love was found

Rekindled

And then lost

Sitting here trying to count

The cost

Of an abandoned love

One more time at midnight, near the wall

Put aside your unspoken fears and your shawl

Please come out from the dark room where you sit?

Let me feel your love once more before you abandon it

Love was found

Rekindled

And then lost

Sitting here trying to count

The cost

Of an abandoned love
