Why do you give up so easily?
Do you think it easy to lay
waste to the castle of love,
do you think love waits so eagerly?
Anticipates you as its arrival?
Love’s plans are not so easily made.

If you seek treasure, seek peril, it’s easier.
If you seek truth, seek faith, it’s easier.
If you seek beauty, buy it, it’s easier.

But if you seek love, you will pay
in pain,
in rapture,
in exposure,
in humiliation,
in glory,

but only if you play to win.
