My Melancholy Lamentation

You are like the wind
To hold, you would be impossible
You are like the sun
For your love, I'd stop a bullet from a gun
You are way too hot to handle
You are like the light that comes from a candle
You are like the clouds up in the sky
I'd jump that high, yes I would try
You are like the sands
You just seem to slip right thru my hands

You are like the rain
That washes away all my pain
You are like a bird
You're like the sweetest sound that I've ever heard
You are like a star
O so close but yet so far
You are like the day
That brings forth life in every way

You take away my heart
Every time that we are apart
If only I you would love
I'd get down on my knees and thank God above
I see heaven in your eyes
When you are alone the moon cries
You mean everything to me
This is why I can't let it be
I won't ever push and shove
I'm begging you please return my love
Bring happiness again
You're more than a lover, you're my best friend

I am captured by your spell
I'd never bid thee fair thee well
For you my heart I would save
For it's your love that I crave
I can't get you out of my mind
For your love is an extraordinary find
If only you'd give to me
For you'd set my soul free
Love's words can not convey
So that is why I lament every day
