What Love Means to Me 2

Love, what would that bastard know
He wouldn’t know the first thing
To have or see love grow
Or ever know what it can bring

No wonder he lives alone
Why would anyone want him
How could anyone call him home
He even looks like a crim

I can see why he doesn’t see his children
Why would you even let him know
They would have to be someone elses’ kin
That is the story that we will sow

They say that he is mad
You would have to believe what they say
He would have to be all bad
To have ended up that way

They say he was once married
A beautiful thing, who would have thought
They say it is the pain he carried
Since with another she was caught

You can’t blame her for seeking another
He wouldn’t have an ounce of passion to give
It would drive anyone to take a lover
Even if it was with him she chose to live

They say that he does nothing
Just sits and thinks alone
Forever always constantly thinking
Of how he lost his home

He has had other loves and friends
And they say has sons and a daughter
But that is where the story ends
I wonder what he would have taught her

They say he is happy by himself
Just taking each day as if new
Doesn’t care about tomorrow or wealth
Or who he will be speaking too

He says that he still can love
Everyone and all he has met
He doesn’t pray for love from above
And only has a few things to regret

He thinks that the only thing of love
Is to be able to let it go
Not to keep it wrapped in your glove
Let it free and it will grow

It doesn’t matter if love fails you
Or if you find yourself alone
It is there in everyone else too
And should always be invited into your home.
