Why must lovers quarrel?

WHY MUST LOVERS QUARREL....
TELL ME WHY MUST LOVERS FIGHT....
WHY DO THEY CHOOSE TO SPEND THEIR DAYS....
BRINGING MISERY TO THEIR NIGHTS....
WHY DOES LOVE SO HAVE TO HURT.....
WHAT CAUSES ALL THE PAIN......
WHY CAN'T LOVERS LIVE TO LOVE, SO THEY CAN LOVE AGAIN .....

WHAT MAKES THE RIGHTS AND WRONGS OF THE GAME.....
WHO,S FAULT ON LOVES DEMISE....
WHO STARTS THE BREACH OF TRUST , YOU SEE ,
THEN COVERS UP WITH LIES...
CAN YOU SAY YOU ARE FREE OF GUILT .........
DEFENSE BE YOUR ONLY WAY ....
CAN YOU SAY " HEY , I ' VE DONE IT RIGHT , " OR
SLOWLY TURN AWAY....
CAN YOU BE SURE OF WHAT YOU SEE ,
AND STAND THERE IN ALL YOUR MIGHT......
DO YOU REALLY HAVE THE ANSWERS,
ON WHAT IS WRONG OR WHAT IS RIGHT...
AND WHY MUST RIGHT BE LIKE A WEAPON,
DAMNATION TO US ALL .........
AND WRONG WON'T STAND IN SILENCE ,
SURELY ONE OF THEM MUST FALL.....
LIKE RAMS IN THE WILD , TWO FORCES MEET
WITH BUT ONE THING IN MIND...
TO DOMINATE THE OTHER WITH WHATEVER YOU CAN FIND ,
NEITHER WANTS TO FOLLOW ,
YET BOTH AFRAID TO LEAD .....
THESE ARE THE TYPES OF PROBLEMS WHERE MISERY CAN BREED .......

HOW SIMPLE THE ANSWERS SEEM TO BE ,
WHEN YOU'RE STANDING ON THE SIDE......
BUT WHEN YOU BECOME THE LOVER ,
FROM THESE TERRORS WILL YOU HIDE,
OR CAN YOU SIT DOWN WITH YOUR PARTNER,
AND LIKE " FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND ".....
CARRY ONE ANOTHER WHEN LIFE MAKES HARD UNJUST DEMANDS........
WILL YOU UNDERSTAND THE FEELINGS ,
WHATEVER THEY MAY BE .....
CAN YOU TRY TO UNDERSTAND YOURSELF ,
NO MATTER WHAT YOU SEE...
SEARCH HARD TO FIND YOUR HAPPY OH ,
" SEEK AND YOU SHALL FIND " ...
REMEMBER , LOVE WORKS FROM THE HEART , NOT DRIVEN BY THE MIND !!
