This Is the Third Time We Have Tried This Love
This is the third time we have tried this love,
And this will be the time that it will last.
Our back and forth is buried in the past.
Now will never end, as time will prove.
I've learned through all the fights and separations
That happiness depends on having you.
It took some time to see that this was true,
Beyond all other dreams and speculations.
But now it is the rock on which I stand.
I know it, and the knowledge brings me peace.
I need no space for rambling or release.
All I am I put into your hands.
Love me well, for I'm completely yours.
The way is clear; I have no other doors.
