I’ll Still Love You

Onto the page trickles a single tear drop
Into a heart rushes an ounce of blood
Out of the west whispers a breath so faintly
Over the clouds rushes a hush at dusk

In a spring sky on a shooting star
Under a blue moon’s fading light
One last token for a fairground ride
Hold this losing boy tonight, and she says,

“I’ll still love you if you have nothing but your broken heart left”
I’m getting older so I ask her to remind me every day
I’ll still love you if you have nothing but your broken heart left
So I say, “baby take my hand and lead me away”

Somehow we still come back to find each other
After the lies that we both told ourselves
Truly your trust is stronger than all my sadness
All of my heart is waiting for one more chance

In a spring sky on a shooting star
Under a blue moon’s fading light
One last token for a fairground ride
Hold this losing boy tonight, and she says,

“I’ll still love you if you have nothing but your broken heart left”
I’m getting older so I ask her to remind me every day
I’ll still love you if you have nothing but your broken heart left
So I say, “baby take my hand and lead me away”

Onto a page
Into a heart
Out of the west
Over the clouds
All of my heart
