I've only just begun to see the truth,
You locked your heart away with no living proof,
'Cause everyone is hurting, including you,
So why bother with love?

Forget all of the battles of your youth,
'Cause growing up is a crime of passion, it's true,
But to really grow you've gotta love,
No matter who hates you because...

The consequence of love and hate is war,
But if there's a fight to fight I'll fight for sure,
I'll fight because your heart is more important
to me than the sword,

Let me show you what this life is for,
To always love and hold to hope and more,
And let it out so hearts can grow up free
and be uplifted!
