TEACHER

Do you think Love is only a problem ?
Something to cause delay ?
Is Love just a tie you resent and deny?
Something to get in the way ?

Do you like to sample contentment ?
Visit to feast at her table ?
But you just can't sign up for committment ?
You're sorry... but you're not able ?

Chorus
Well, Love is always a Teacher,
who'll leave you alone, if you choose.
On the cold day, when you can't reach her,
she'll teach you about the blues.
And - if you refuse her lessons,
someday she'll grow distant and cold.
You'll miss her tender blessing,
in the night when you're tired and old.

Yes - Love demands your attention.
She too must be nurtured and loved.
But you'll get back more than you've given.
She'll show you the Light from above.

Yes - Love can hurt when you lose it.
And yes, the heart pays the cost.
But it hurts even more to refuse it,
and wander the world like the Lost.

Chorus
Love is always a Teacher,
who'll leave you alone, if you choose.
Then one day when you can't reach her,
she'll teach you about the blues.
But if you will give her your heart,
though in time it is battered and bruised,
Love knows the healing Art,
and can make it new with her Truths.
