Love (Like It’s Supposed To Be)

You’ve been holdin’ your heart as a prisoner
Thinkin’ you will never be free
To let your heart go
And love, like it’s supposed to beYou’ve been burned in the past
And you’ve sworn love can’t last
You’ll never play the game again
Some will lose, some will win
And you can’t survive losin’ again
You just can’t see…love like it’s supposed to be

The pains in your heart only strengthen
The walls you’ve neem buildin’ around
Once you wanted to fly…
Now you’re playin’ it safe on the ground
You laugh as your friends dream of love that won’t end
Cuz you know that it can never be
And yet, deep down inside, you’ve been waitin’ for someone like me
Now, can’t you see…love like it’s supposed to be

You yearn to be cared for
For just who you are
And you’re tired of playin’ a part
But I see the treasure you’ve locked in your heart
And I hold the key
