I don't want my freedom

I've only got myself to blame
It can happen to any one
You win, you lose
Oh yeah, I fell in love

It's a hard life
To love and live forever in each others hearts
To learn to care for each other
When you're in love
I try and mend the broken pieces
Ooh, they say it's just a state of mind

When your love has cut you down to size
Now I'm waiting for something to fall from the skies

Two lovers together
It's a long hard fight
To trust in one another right from the start

In a world that's filled with sorrow
It's a long hard fight
I'll look back at myself and say I did it for love (ooh)
