Leaving Him

I know you think that leaving him will break your heart in two
I know that he means something no one else has meant to you
I know a love thatís kindled in desperation and in spite
will grow more strong than any love when everything is right
I know for all your hurting that haunts you through the night
your heart will know no greater high than loving through the fight

I know you think that leaving him will cause eternal loss
I know you think it makes a gap that you can never cross
you fear no one inspires you the way that he can do
and if you lose his freedom itís a prison for you too
you fear you cannot do the things that he has taught you to
you donít believe that you in fact can find the same in you

I know you think that leaving him will empty all your life
create a void of laughter and of loving and of strife
without him on your mind all day what will you think about
without him to give yourself to now where will you be devout
without him in your bed at night who will make you cry out
being with him gives a purpose that is making you so proud

I know you think that leaving him is just not to be done
you think itís giving up a fight you should rightly have won
you think you will not love again if he is on his own
you think you cannot find again the way that he has shown
I know that when heís not with you you just feel so alone
you never knew you had a warmth like that your heart has grown

I know you think that leaving him will never set you free
I know your heart keeps telling you that this was meant to be
you give him all you have that you can ever give away
he makes you smile he makes you cry and sees you through the day
canít face to be without him if it hurts you as it may
and all your hopes and all your dreams is just to make him stay

I know you think that leaving him will break your heart in two
I know that he means something no one else has meant to you
I know a love thatís kindled in desperation and in spite
will grow more strong than any love when everything is right
I know for all your hurting that haunts you through the night
your heart will know no greater high than loving through the fight
