For Love and Love Only

I'm saving my tears
For something real
By real I mean one thing
Worth that much feeling
I won’t cry if you steal from me
If I do not heal or if I cannot see
I'll save my tears
For love and love only

I won't weep if life treats me unfair
Or from what you never gave me
Do what you desire, I will not despair
Even if you mock or enslave me
I won’t cry if you blame me
And I will not be ashamed
When my tears come easily
For love and love only

My tears won’t be bitter
They won’t come from anger
I will not be injured
When I am a stranger
I will not grieve
For life undreamed of
As long as I believe
Is in love and love only

I won't spend a tear on
Your scandals or weaknesses
I will serve but not mourn for
The helpless and dispossessed
I won’t bemoan what you don’t believe
Or what I'm bereft of
For I’ve lost nothing in love
In love and love only
I’ve lost nothing in love
And love only
I’ve lost nothing in love
