MAYBE LOVE

I N S P I R A T I O N


A song of gentle optimism. I play this in DADGAD and capo on third fret. This song probably needs a bigger voice than mine. We live in hope! You can hear the track on Soundcloud.


Maybe Love

There are far horizons, where a traveller stands,

Casting eyes across deserted sands,

And there are regrets to overcome.

Rivers in flood can prove too hard for some,

And there are miles of empty spaces.

There are wild and windy places,

Chorus

But there's a road, leading to your door.

There's a road, though there are tolls to pay.

There's a light in your window,

Here's a man looking for a role to play,

Maybe love, maybe love will find a way.


There is darkness when shadows cast their spell,

There is no heaven if there is no hell

And there can be no laughter if there are no tears,

Though sometimes it can be hard to see past the fears.

When the dark clouds roll across a thunderous sky,

There are millions of answers to the question why,


There are those who work against the common good.

Best intentions get misunderstood,

And there are alleys, which are blind where some,

Would plunder innocence for every crumb,

And every rose bears a prickly thorn,

And a smile can hide a heap of bitter scorn.
