The heart is a beggar
Always in debt
And for this you wish
We had never met
Trapped in your heart
A seductive web
A curse
a kiss
A silent death

Passion and pain
Hard to abstain
Touched by a heart
My loss your gain
Confused by love
The old refrain
Not to last
Only to pass
Pass on through

Trying to move on
Trying to hold tight
Trying to see
Without a light
Taking your hand
Or taking the lead
Taking it hard
When it's time to leave

Forget the past
It's a jealous path
And a future with you
A painful view
Baby it's true
Just a distant dream
Just a fork in the road
Are we moving too fast
Are we moving too slow

Tell me are we here to play
Tell me are we here to stay
Is there a future
Is there a future
For us baby
I want to know right now

(Repeat Chorus)

Taking your hand
Or taking the lead
Taking it hard
When it's time to leave

Oh baby smile for me
Oh baby smile for me
