Corner Of Love and Heartache


Here I am on the corner of love,
the corner of love and heartache,
which way will I turn, let's go see where love takes,
will love be a smooth, level road,
or will it bumpy and rough,
will I be toting a heavy load,
will I have love enough,
will I be going down the heartache lane,
wondering just where you are,
will my heart be full of pain,
or wishing on a star,
how I wonder which way to turn,
afraid to take a chance,
love is a fire that can give you a burn,
or it can be a ballroom dance,
love doesn't care if your rich or poor,
or healthy, wealthy and wise,
it will come to any one's door,
sometimes in disguise,
no matter where you find love,
heartache can be around the corner,
I would rather be in love,
and a heartache scorner,
do I turn left or do I turn right,
I know that I love you with all of my might,
is love a oneway street or does it go both ways,
let me be on the road to love, not on the lost highway,
heartache is a deadend street where people often stray,
I want to go down the road to love and I want to go today.

For the lords who lay ye low?
