I have found the deeper love and lost it in a blink
And the brand it made upon my soul I find forever sinks
And within that brand a battle takes place that the world has yet to see
A calling like a trumpet comes from my depths for a love that is calling

The vivaciousness of it all brings a rush to the blood flow
A strength in my heart and a call to my brain that causes my legs to go
The underlying conflict in the yonder depths of this body creates a warmth unknown
Forcing me to take action in the world I am in

But oh, the thing I fear. The thought that plagues the back of my mind
When the gunpowder ceases and the cloud of smoke settle whatever will I find
A wounded heart is one thing, but all battles come at a cost
And what will I do if I in the turmoil that the gain and the wager have both been lost....

Love is a battlefield... And the only way to win is to fight on...
