The Difference (comes down to you)

 

2007 S.H. Gilbert

 

Love can be a skiff in a gale

Blowing into eternity

Never quite certain

When it'll be curtains

If your heart will leave any remains

 

And there's no rescue hail

Nothing to lead you free

Always in motion

With barely a notion

Of what your future contains

 

And it's all so different today

So easy and I'm not sure why

I'm feeling so blessed

I'd never have guessed it

The difference comes down to you

 

Love can be worse than barbed wire links

Took me through scars beyond score

It's not something was that mentioned

When love had my attention

Till it happens I thought it was lore

 

And hope's a loose string I think

I forget feelings I had before

Cause I couldn't express it

Would just make a mess of it

And the woman would walk out the door

 

And it's all so different today

So easy and I'm not sure why

Could be the weather

Or that we're together

The difference comes down to you
