Love is the highest risk we take

(by Maria Sherstiuk)

There is something real
Living in your soul
Hiding in your smile
That grows inside you.

It grows very fast
Coloring your world.
Making you alive.
It burns desire

Reared by your dreams…
Watered by your tears…
But it is detained
by your past.

It is detained by your past.
It is detained by your past.
It is detained by your past.

If you are really strong
To take the risk of love
After the deepest falls
And after slammed doors
Non realized hopes
You’ll comprehend my needs
You will respect my fears
You’ll appreciate
The risk I take.

You will accept the scars of all my passing years.

If you want to live in me,
If you want to dream with me,
If you want to go with me,
If you want to fly with me

Just let me know it
Just let me know it

Love makes us completely defenseless.
Love makes me completely defenseless.
Love makes you completely defenseless.
Love makes us both completely defenseless.
