The great constant in life is loss, sorrow and regret
Why do you have to add to it
Can things not be different between us

Is there not enough loss and sorrow in this life
Can we not just get through this
I am here and ready to do the work

Let us turn this problem into a new beginning of hope
I’ve had a lifetime of tears I don’t need another lifetime all over again
If we just get through this I know things will be better on the other side

I am begging, pleading with you.
No more loss in this life. I cannot handle another loss
I can do better. I know I can do better
Will you simply not give me this chance

Reconciliation is better than a loss any day
Not another thousand nights of sorrow
Anything but another night of sorrow

Loss of heart, a loss of joy, a loss of another night sleep
How can this world handle so much loss
So much sorrow, so much regret

I guess I will have to settle for tears
I guess I will have to settle for pain
I guess I will have to settle for emptiness
I guess I will have to settle for loss

I want to live with integrity I want to live with heart
