Shipwreck Of Love

Rick Lang

From the port we climbed aboard our new-found ship of love
Two restless hearts beat as one
We set sail from the harbor of bliss & happiness into a sea of heartache & regret
…with no warnin’ of just what lie ahead

In love’s unchartered waters we drifted far off course
Our differences churned like the undertow
Angry waves of deceit came crashing on the deck,
felt our helpless ship begin to list
…and I wondered how it came to this

Tossed by the troubled winds I knew we wouldn’t last
Our ill-fated ship was sinking fast
Next thing I remember I lay washed up on the shore
Just another victim of….a shipwreck of love
