Sleeping Lions – Believing It lyrics

Eight years ago to this day
I saw my mother throw love away
And everytime I become content
The "love" just ends in hurt
Nine years ago my mother laughed
Until he went and broke her heart
And only now can I see it repairing
Now all I am is lonely.

I'm at the point of believing it
That love just does not exist
Because I look around at everyone
And nobody really means it.

Ten years ago I was happy
My father helped me every day
Until two years on he went away
The thought still keeps me awake
The years have just changed me
As does every minute passing, so
I'll let go of love and reminisce
And now all I am is lonely.

Prove to me love is real
I need to see it's not material
That ignorance doesn't rule minds
That I'm not behind enemy lines
Show me that my love can exist
I'm just going out on a limb
But I don't think you can
No I don't think you can
