Did you know, when you took my heart,
That what you'd do to it might make it come apart?
And did you think for a minute that I'd give you any less than I can?
But you didn't want it at all, my friend.

When you said it was love, did you think I'd be hurt?
And when it seemed like a dream, it just fell to the dirt.
And when you said it was love, did you think that it might reach an end?
Now only you can change that, my friend.

(bridge)
And in the winter I lost everything,
Like the summer loses Spring.
One day it's here, but soon it just gets lost.
But one day you may return,
When you finally come to learn,
That the gift of love is worth much more than it costs.

And if you should return, rather than leave me alone,
I just might cry, just to see you back home.
And if it all came true, and we had a love like God might send,
Then all might be right once again, my friend?
Once again, my friend.
