what is this love lyrics – blue rodeo

what is this love
that i leave behind
how can i turn
from the tears in your eyes
what is this world
where we always pretend
that it is worth it
worth it in the end

what is this life we share
that i just throw away
is this love
that causes so much pain
what is the promise
that i leave behind
why can’t i
just lie beside you again

what’s goin’ on
how’d it get so wrong

what is this dream
that i’ll never find
what is this prayer
that’s stealing my mind
what is this deal
that i’ve just made with fate
and i wonder
if i have left it too late
