The Price of Love

You say you like to watch me sleeping
It's the only time I'm at peace
The chasm between us seems to deepen
As silence fills the void between

The million times I've called your name
To have the sound whipped aside
Recriminations, deceit and blame
When last did I see you smile?

It's hard to walk away
Harder still to stay
Torn in two, wishing you'd
Come back to me the way we were
Before the silence
Before the frost
We knew love's worth,
Not it's cost

But now...

I'm not so sure

You used to say that you would love me
Forever and a day
You'd be the sun high above me
You'd drive my fears away

But now our ship is sinking
Love is many miles away
What's the use of all this thinking
When our words get in the way?

It's hard to walk away
Harder still to stay
Torn in two, wishing you'd
Come back to me the way we were
Before the silence
Before the frost
We knew love's worth,
Not it's cost

But now...

I'm not so sure

I'm not so sure
