Acceptance
(Marietta Schröder)

I let my mind just wander
but it always runs back to you.
I let my feelings slumber
but they waken on a cue.
And with a sinking heart
I finally depart from hope of love so tender
it went as far as illusions render.

When suffering gets too much
it turns around the wheel.
When heartache hurts too much
you will recoil and reel.
Waiting - I'm not good at all
it's nothing I can bear.
Acceptance of the good and bad
for me it's tear and wear.

Apart from sorrow and from pain
you gave me something precious
You woke my spirit and a vein
I feel awakened and ferocious.

I let my mind just wander
but it always runs back to you.
I let my feelings slumber
but they waken on a cue.
To ease my mind of sorrow
I should banish you from my soul
but still a feeling lingers
ready to blast light like burning coal.

Apart from sorrow and from pain
you gave me something precious
You woke my spirit and a vein
I feel awakened and ferocious.
