Tear a star from out the sky
And the sky feels blue
Tear a petal from a rose
And the rose weeps too

Take your heart away from mine
And mine will surely break
My life is yours to make
So, please, keep the spark awake

Would you take the wings from birds
So that they can't fly?
Would you take the ocean's roar
And leave just a sigh?

All this your heart won't let you do
This is what I beg of you
Don't take your love from me
