Lionheart

All things must break.
All things are outgrowing
the shapes that they take.
Life just keeps going.
And our bond may break,
against all of my hoping.
But my heart won’t break.
It will only break open.

All things must lose.
The war’s not behind us.
The mistakes we ignored
are going to hunt down and find us.
But if it’s you I must lose,
let me lose you with kindness.
For my heart won’t lose.
It will just lose its blindness.

So roar, lion of my heart,
till you know why love is real.
Roar, till you know why you have to feel
every bit of this deep inside.

All things must stop
and lay down their burdens.
The clenched fist must drop,
the eye close its curtains.
And our love may stop,
but of this I am certain:
my heart won’t stop.
It will only stop hurting.

So roar, lion of my heart,
till you know why love is real.
Roar, till you know why you have to feel
every bit of this deep inside.
