Hurtin' Again

I feel hurt and deceived,
Broken and ill-received.
I just wanna smile again,
And as I see it,
That is my only sin....
So be it.

Princess, hold that wand you wave.
Take me, break me
Make me your slave,
Just so I see
Perfect love's face.
Just so I finish the race.

Love is give and take,
And caring for caring's sake.
Love is a lurker, a persistant whisper in my ear,
Yet it runs far whenever I come near.
