YOU SAY ... ONLY TIME WILL TELL

YOU SAY ... ONLY TIME WILL TELL 

 

You say ... only time will tell. 

I say ... I want to hear your heart's bell. 

Know that I don’t need you.  

But my heart wants to.  

My being does not need you. 

But my heart yearns to love you....

 

Yes only time will tell. 

And only in time will all of me want you.  

My body and my soul. 

Never to take a selfish toll. 

For we’ve been through that separately with others.  

Their toll that smothers....

 

We know disillusion in fixing broken wings.  

And all sorts of other things. 

For we wanted to believe that fixed wings will stay. 

Only to see the love fly away. 

And leave us confused and bewitched. 

Wondering if love was an on-off switch....

 

Alone were we in that past. 
Wondering why it didn't last.
I am whole now and you're in my life. 
Waiting for you to mend your heart's strife. 
To heal the toll. 
Come to me when you're whole....
