Kevin Ayers – Given And Taken lyrics

So I give my heart to you
Though I can't be sure
You won't take it and break it
And hurt me
I've been hurt so many times before

We can play those games of love
Like other people do
But that's not me or you
It's just everyone else
Is all dreams and I want something new

And there are no guarantees
That can set your heart at ease
'cause no one ever knows
How the feeling comes and goes
When you're sure it's so strong
It can never go wrong
It'll always go on and
Then suddenly it goes

Only brave hearts live their love
Weak hearts hide in dreams
Living lives in romance
Leaving danger and chance
To the warriors of love

And there are no guarantees
That can set your heart at ease
'cause no one ever knows
How the feeling comes and goes
When you're sure it's so strong
It can never go wrong
It'll always go on and
Then suddenly it's gone

So I give my heart to you
Though I can't be sure
You won't take it and break it
And hurt me
I've been hurt so many times before
