Your Greedy Heart

print

I have waited long in silence while you realize your dreams
But you take and take and take love, never turn a hand to me
Like a teardrop in an ocean, grain of sand upon a beach
I could journey on forever to a heart that’s out of reach.

   Oh, what more can I give you that I’ve not already given
   I have only one heart, one life to live
   You take what I’m a-wanting, I’m mindful of your greed
   My lifetime is too short to give you all that you need.
    The walls of love are tumbled ’round me left me standing by myself
