The Lover and the Cynic

Broken hearted, single soul
Can't console, no control

Carefree contentment, sparkling eyes
Affection, attention, romance is alive

 
Memories, laughter, happy ever after
The scars, the pain, tears fall like rain
Love is blind, love is lost 
Love is hope, love is all
Open heart, open mind
Trust too easy and you'll fall 

The cynic is careful, the lover believes
They all deceive
Wear your heart on your sleeve

One knows the truth, one has yet to discover
The lover a cynic, the cynic a lover
