All my life I've been living with heartache.
Trying to do my best to keep my mind straight.
Always being backed up against a wall.
Watching out for the ones praying on my downfall.
And oh! Like a river, these tears do flow.
Looking both ways, confused on where to go.
Every step I take, every move I make--
Time and time again, it's all a mistake.
But Papa said don't cry my dear.
Don't you waste another tear .
You have nothing to fear; not even fear itself.
'Cause you'll always have me; even if there's no one else.
This love thang ain't easy .
It's worth it with the right one, please believe me.
You'll fall in love and believe that it's right.
But you'll never know its real til it shines in the light.
I try so hard to protect myself from the heartache.
And that heartache; becomes a headache, that I just can't take.
But oh! When the time comes, I will receive.
The love that I believe, is out there for me.
