Love Is Only Now

I have so much pride
I’m not able to dream
They make me say things
That might never return

I’ve changed but I’m still together
Am I rearranged or something new altogether
I’m too strong to settle for anything less
Even if tomorrow I don’t feel any better

I don’t know if love has a past
How much do I need to remember
Will it teach me about desire
Or only how to forget her

What’s scary is my life is working for me
I just know what I need to do
It’s the first time I’ve felt that way
It’s a simple thing as long as you stay true

I’m not gambling my life away
I don’t have enough time to win it back
I don’t have an attitude about life
I only know the things that I lack

I don’t know if love has a future
I hope that you’ll be part of it
The only way is to believe in it
My fears are all I will admit
