Did you move because of it?
Did you get up and leave your
Welcome bed? Your hearth so warm,
Your lover so near and dear.
Did it tempt you again with sweet
Promises of tomorrow?
Tomorrow so new, so bright,
Seducing your heart and sight.
Did you know, did you know the
Fair price you would have to pay?
If you did, would you do it
Anyway? Any time, night or day.
And all of this, if all of
This World could be yours? Would you
Clasp it? Would you love it? Could
You take the pain of it all?
