Lyrics

In the time when your word was true
You gave your heart to the ones you knew
And at the dawn of every day
There was a light that you gave to me

You gave yourself to a love that conquers
Gave everything to a love that conquers

Then you came and you came real close
You gave the heart what it wanted most
You took your time and you made it clear
Maybe time will erase some things

You ran away with a love that conquers
You ran away with a love that conquers

Too long in the shadows too long in the dust
Give yourself to a love that conquers
