YOU TOOK MY LOVE

You took my love and then you threw it away,
You took my heart and now my heart is passe.
I thought that you came from out of nowhere,
That you were mine right from the start.
You sang me a song from out of nowhere,
A melody that broke my heart.
You lit a flame that filled my life with desire,
I played the game and then got burned in the fire.
It hurts to confess that I miss you,
But I'd give my soul just to kiss you.
You took my life the day that you took my love,
You took my life the day that you took my love.
