The rhythm of love

Where the river of dreams meets the tide of despair

Across the creek of commotion and lost love affairs

Where broken hearts drown in the tears of neglect

And the bells of betrayal toll for those who'll be next


Where the long lonely nights tick by ever so slow

Where the pain love inflicted bars sleep from the door

Where the cheated all go for some rest and respite

To a place called Delusion where hope thrives on lies


Where a lie is a good as the truth any day

On the nights when you know love is fading away

Can't be helped I suppose it's the way that we're made

She didn't come home guess she must be delayed


The rhythm of love runs fast and runs slow

Can't say which is which 'til he doesn't come home

'Til the house is so quiet you can hear a pin drop

And a note in the post say's it's over – full stop
