Is this all the love you can give me?
The most that your heart can afford?
You know that I love you
Do anything for you
Why can’t you give any more?
My head says to leave, find someone new
Someone who loves me the way I love you
My heart says to stay, never give up,
Go back each time to the one that I love
People tell me that I’m wrong, but they’re not me, how can they know?
I have no strength, I can’t break free, so strong the seal binds you to me.
It hurts a little less each time, each time you make me say Goodbye
Is it because deep down I know the feelings that you still deny?
Together we’re so very right, the way it’s meant to be
What do you think alone at night to make you turn from me?
If only you would let me in, let me share your life
Let me reach you, let me teach you, show you what is right.
It’s in your voice, it’s in your smile, I see it in your eyes
The things you do, the things we share, that’s how I know you truly care.
But caring isn’t love you say, you can’t give more, I shouldn’t stay
And yet you miss me when I go; just call me back, I’ll run to you
I know that you want me, your body can’t lie
It’s never been like this before, that much you can’t deny
But wanting isn’t needing and needing isn’t love
Love’s selfless not selfish
Tender and true
You don’t know what it’s like to love like I do.
Why ask me if I’ll wait for you? You know you needn’t ask
I’d wait until the end of time if I thought you might be mine
Don’t look at me that way, raise my hopes too much
Lead me on with words, burn me with your touch
And if this is all you can give me
The most that your heart can drag forth
I’ll take what there is
The little it is
It may not be much
It isn’t enough
But maybe one day you’ll feel more.
