CAUSE & DEFECTS

© J.A. Storey -Taylor 30/11/2002



Baby, take me by the hand and

Help me try to help you understand

How much you hurt me.

Please see, if I'm to own the shame,

I cannot, will not, carry all the blame.

Too costly, that's too high a price

For having dared to live with you

In paradise.


Baby, look into my eyes and

Help me try to help you realise

How much you hurt me.

Please see, as a matter of course,

All of my problems were worsened by yours.

Too costly, the emotional sacrifice

For having dared to live with you

In paradise.


We all bear scars, we all bare flaws and

Every single one of them contributes to the cause,

That the mirror of life takes and reflects,

Showing, all too clearly, the effect of our defects.


Baby, truly, can't you tell

How you helped my heaven become a living hell?

How much you hurt me?

Please see, the damage that was done

Came about through two lives, not just one.

So costly, when to know the only vice was

In having dared to live with you

In paradise.


We all bear scars, we all bare flaws and

Every single one of them contributes to the cause,

That the mirror of life takes and reflects,

Showing, all too clearly, the effect of our defects
