She never loved the way she vowed, she wears her ring for show

She gave her heart to other men and left me all alone

Now, I raise her kids who are not mine, and I love them as my own

She never loved the way she vowed, she wears her ring for show

 

I gave my heart, I won’t take it back, it’s hers always to keep

She’s been abused by other loves, but she’ll be loved by me

I will go to her and seek her out, I will buy her from the streets

I gave my heart, I won’t take it back, it’s hers always to keep

 

I do not ask for sacrifice, the price is far too much

But I will pay that price for her, despite her wandering heart

I will mercy her and bring her home, I’ll give more than she deserves

I do not ask for sacrifice, I only ask for love
