Sweet Abiding Love

I've had love depart, I've had my fill
Of love that breaks your heart and breaks your will
I've searched from the start, I'm searching still
For traces of
A sweet abiding love

I've known shattered dreams, I know their names
Pretty girls, it seems, play silly games
Down the line your schemes go up in flames
Like remnants of
A sweet abiding love

Better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all, they say
I've loved and lost a time or two
If that's the cost for love that's new, I'll pay
Come what may

Dark clouds bring the rain and fill the well
Dark skies still remain but will dispel
Time can heal the pain and time will tell
The story of
A sweet abiding love

Better to have loved and lost
Then never to have loved at all, they say
I love and bleed and start anew
But now I need a love that's true today
A girl who'll stay

When deep, deep hope inside has died and gone
And the long, long night goes on and on
True, true love will light a brand new dawn
The promise of
A sweet abiding love
