A Place to Perch my Hope

Love’s not easy
Love’s not free
It takes a toll on
You and me

I’m not stupid
I’m not blind
I know that sometimes
You’re unkind

Love’s not heaven
Love’s not God
Love is painful
Love is odd

I’m not a dreamer
Just a girl
I know that you
Can’t fix the world

Love’s a chance
For me to cope
Love’s a place
To perch my hope
