A GIFT

strong, that's what they say

i'm only complacent

and i will admit to the crime

of being too blind

feeling too certain

that you'll always be on my side

 

i often forget

your love is a gift

a gift

i take it for granted

i know you don't have to be here

you don't have to love me 

yet you do

you still do

 

weak, when on my own

confess i'm pathetic

befriended by panic and cold

and then you arrive 

my torment relenting

again i appear to be strong

that's what they say...

 

i often forget your love is a gift, a gift

trusts and lets me breathe, repairs every cut

and sting

i often forget your love is a gift, a gift

you don't have to be here, you don't have to 

love me

 

i know you don’t have to love me and be here

with me

you are a gift

i take it for granted and...

how can i forget your love is a gift

and you do
