All Or Nothing


Not for me
half-measures
in life or love
I wouldn’t know
how to live a little
love just a bit
Holding back
is a game
I never learnt to play

All or nothing
that’s the way
I do it
Yes, I risk
a river of tears
for a heart
that keeps breaking
I use hope
to glue it together
each time

You wonder how
it’s all so easy for me
But you can’t know
how hard it is
for the only thing
I don’t wear
on my sleeve
is my pain
