"Love's Heartless Jest" as written by and David Alexander John Mcpherson....
Is love a wondrous mystery or is it just a cruel joke
Full of painful history, did I burn it all to smoke?
Love reveals it's depths when the ship is going down
My heart is parched and starved for a cup I did not fill

And this will never heal
Sorrow confides in joy, but I'm listening still
To the cries of a helpless boy
The boy becomes a man
A man who can stand on his own two feet
He has a heart that burns but a heart that won't melt

Sleeping in the light, awake in the darkest night
Please don't worry darling, I'm not going anywhere
But when you cast me away I will not try to fight the waves
This song I'll never sing, this song it cries in vain

And she thinks I'll never change
Sorrow confides in joy
But I'm listening still
To the cries of a helpless boy
The boy becomes a man
A man who can stand on his own two feet
He has a heart that burns but a heart that won't melt

And I hope you felt every word
You know where I am now
