love lies in ruin
love lies in ruin
love lies in ruin
love lies in ruin

leave if you want
if you can decide
leave if you believe in paradise
and stay if you must
if you'll trust my highs
stay, never leave, never go

my love lies in ruin
and better still my heart has ceased to care for anyone
you want to seize her
then tell her that you love her so
testify to all that i have ever felt for this girl

so walk on the wing
on the faith of desire
walk thru this place
as if your own
and leave as a friend
as a will that won't bend
leave as you would again

thru all the seasons
that i lived, i know i'm exiled
i testify to all that i had ever felt
as a child

my love lies in ruin
my love lies in ruin

to all i denied
i resist and i cursed
to all let me say
thank you so
for love is my way
is the path i choose
for love ever young may i feel

my love lies in ruin
my love lies in ruin
my love lies in ruin
my love lies in ruin

    General CommentI can't believe I'm the first to comment on this song. Although I'm sure many a fans share the same thoughts. Never the less, wOw, for lack of a better term. Relative to the Glass House version, its Billys utterly raw emotion and jimmys iron clad timing which make this song to be poetry. Maybe such lyrics notion is that all things, such as love, must come to an end (and great loves will someday have to part: 0) Love may lie in ruin but it arose in rectitude. Billy -if you read this-"THANK YOU" for everything.
