"Once You Love" as written by and Steve/crane Earle....
A long time ago, there laid a man,
He had the world in the palm of his hand
Sultans and kings beat a path to his door,
Had everything but he still wanted more

One day in spring came a lady so fair,
And he'd never looked on a beauty so rare
But he didn't trust her,
So he locked her away,
The gold lost its lustre when the love died that day

Once you love, once you trust it,
Once you give, your soul is bare
One false move and you know you're busted,
Once you love, you care

I knew an old man who lived all alone
A sad little house at the end of the road
Sat on his front porch, in an old rocking chair,
Everyone swore he'd gone crazy down there

But no-one comes near, so how could they know,
He lost someone dear to him once long ago
He remembers the laughter, still tastes the tears,
Still calls her name out after all of these years

Once you love, once you trust it,
Once you give, your soul is bare
One false move and you know you're busted,
Once you love, you care

You can keep it all inside,
You can run but you can't hide
When you think it's safe outside,
Look behind you love will find you

Once you love, once you trust it,
Once you give, your soul is bare
One false move and you know you're busted,
'Cause once you love, you care

Once you trust it,
Once you care
Once you trust it
Once you care
Once you trust it
Once you care
Once you trust it
Once you care
