I lost a young love once.
When it began I was a kid.
It died of injuries suffered
from all the childish things I did.
I fell so deep in love once
that it had me struck with fear.
Held that love so tight I lost it
in attempts to keep it near.
I lost a love before I had it,
and it was the strangest thing.
Looked just like love in the beginning,
but it turned out to be a fling.
Now I've lost so many loves
that its been hard for me to see
whether I've been losing love
or maybe loves been losing me.
