This song is so new that I have absolutely nothing recorded for it yet. I started out with the music, and knew I wanted the song to be about unrequited love – but even so, not with despair. Before I met my wife, there were many times I felt the pain of a broken heart along the way. Somewhere though, I decided to resolve that every romance would naturally end up in failure – except for the last one. But if I withheld my heart at any point along the way to not get hurt, then it would make that last love an impossibility.

How many times can you mend a broken heart?
How many more times can you fall in love,
Give your all & give it right from the start?
What if I were to run and hide, were to lock inside the key to my heart?
Could anyone ever find it there to ever leave me bare again in the dark?
How many times do I need to get past
Every awkward dance, every failed romance
Till the love that I know will last?
I won’t give up on you, I will wait for the day…
When I’ll look into your eyes and realize that every love dies
Until the last love – and that last love – is you…
Every time it hurts so bad – as much as it ever had before –
(But if it) didn’t hurt, then what was it worth and how did I end up with more?
How much longer? I don’t know how much stronger I can get…
(I feel like) giving up, but I must believe that we just still haven’t met – so…
The hope of finding you will see me through once again
(Through the) darkest hours and till a new love flowers
I might just see you then – so…
