What is love?

What is love, but a burden
that leaves you uncertain?

So many nights
I would leave on the lights
to show you I was still there.
Was I not enough?
without me are you better off?
What is love?

Is it worth
that I gave you the heaven and earth?
did I give too much
till there was nothing left?
Was I the purpetrator of your heart's theft?

What is love,
but an illness,
but a drug
and you are the dealer?
I though you were my healer.

It leaves you with joy,
and when it's gone,
you're lying like a boken toy
that was just played.
till the joy fades
Is it worth, was I not enough?
What is love?
