Love Glorious
William J. Hall - February, 1999

  1 Daybreak -
  2 Freezing rain -
  3 What's become of us?
  4 We lie awake,
  5 We bite, we blame,
  6 We carry on, we fuss;
  7 Ain't it a shame
  8 We still don't know how to trust?
  9 Ain't love glorious?
 
  10 Against the ache,
  11 Across the chain
  12 We still reach out to touch;
  13 Afraid we'll fake
  14 This what became
  15 Compassion from the crush.
  16 While we proclaim
  17 Karmic justice such a bust.
  18 Ain't love glorious?
 
  19 We raise the stakes
  20 We stake our claim
  21 We get the most from what we take
  22 We minimize the pain
  23 For what we make
  24 For what we gain
  25 Of glorious
  26 Love
  27 Of love glorious
 
  28 And when it breaks
  29 We see it plain
  30 Scribbled in the dust:
  31 The cars, the place,
  32 The pocket change,
  33 The family friends and such
  34 Stand back, take aim,
  35 Baby, kill me if you must -
  36 Ain't love glorious?
     
  37 We raise the stakes
  38 We stake our claim
  39 We get the most from what we take
  40 We minimize the pain
  41 For what we make
  42 For what we gain
  43 Of glorious
  44 Love
  45 Of love glorious
