There are forces in me that leave nothing to chance
the choice is not mine but it's own,

for it's own self-protection
it molds my direction
and in time I can see that I've grown.

Never again will I put up with pain
for the sake of the victim I see
as I struggle each day I'll put sadness away in hopes that my heart can be free

I do have a man that I love very much and a part of my heart he's become
the laughter we share is not found everywhere so to this conclusion I've come

I'll give what I can and I'll stretch out for more
but when weary I'll rest out of sight,
and if love seeks to find me
and the forces that bind me
then I'll wonder this time "Is it right"?

I won't jump the gun, no I won't just assume
but each day will take care of itself
and if passion does blend with true love from within then the hearts self-protection will melt.
