Love's A Double Edged Sword


(Music opens to the ABC News theme)

Next door a pretty girl crying for the love she had and lost
Her pain is so deep, I hear her weep
Her whole world convulses, in torment she sleeps
Her thoughts are unhappy, life’s so unfair
It’s tough being fifteen, hey we’ve all been there

Love’s a double edged sword
That heals or wounds the purest heart
It can bring you joy, or carve the deepest scar
Love’s a double edged sword, to be won or lost
Some have loved better, some have not
Love’s a double edged sword

By the window sits a lady drinking coffee from a long black cup
She looks so fragile, she looks so alone
Waiting for her love, but he hasn’t shown
It’s not the first time, it won’t be the last
Being stood up is such a pain in the arse
I know how she’s feeling, love is such a curse
But there are some things that are worse

Love’s a double edged sword
That can heal or wound the purest heart
It can bring you joy, or carve the deepest scar
Love’s a double edged sword, like Excalibur lost
Some have shown love better, some forgot
Love’s a double edged sword

From the theatre walks a lady dressed in diamonds and designer gear
Her husband left her, he died three years ago
Now she lives with her memories and cat Alamo
She knows she is lucky, she smiles a lot
She lives life in the heart and she minds not
Time is so precious, enjoy all that you can
Tomorrow you could be right there where she stands

Love’s a double edged sword
That can heal or wound the purest heart
It can bring you joy, or carve the deepest scar
Love’s a double edged sword, to be won or lost
It's better to have loved, than to have not
Love’s a double edged sword

Poem of the Day

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
