lifeblood: songs: lyrics: any single solitary heart


you've lost at love before
you never closed that door
this time its hurt you
for the last time

now only the lonely know
the pain of letting go
before you say no more
take my advice

just ask any single solitary heart
why winter night is longer
how a love can fall apart
why the world keeps getting colder
or where a teardrop starts
just ask any single solitary heart

don't ask the stars above
cause they've never been in love
they'll just remind you of
the first time

when you had confidence
in love's sweet innocence
now you have evidence
that love can be unkind

just ask any single solitary heart
why winter night is longer
how a love can fall apart
why the world keeps getting colder
or where a teardrop starts
just ask any single solitary heart
why winter night is longer
how a love can fall apart
why the world keeps getting colder
where a teardrop starts
just ask any single solitary heart
