(Love Is) The Only Surprise

Dreams they die in the blink of an eye
These things we do just to get by
I can’t believe what I see with my own eyes
Love is the only surprise
I never will learn to kill
this pain inside though I’ve had my fill
I think the world is made up of treachery and lies
Love is the only surprise
If I could I’d take you
to a place you’ve never been
Somewhere between a marriage
and the seventh deadly sin
I would keep you company
you’d never feel alone
As we broke every law
that was ever carved in stone
It’s come to this one last kiss
I can’t believe that’s all there is
But every time I see you something in me dies
Love is the only surprise
I’m not taking bets on how good it gets
I’ve known love with no regrets
When I get to thinking that I gave away the prize
Love is the only surprise
In the end we never mend
A lover can’t become a friend
Even though they tell you that it never dies
Love is the only surprise
