Lovers Never Learn

Painted pretty pictures in a line
He doesn't’t know what’s real or what is lost in his mind
He thinks of her often but he’s blind
Twisted leaps of faith so unkind
Raptured by the love he had inside

She once was a vision in his eyes
His passion was so bitterly and nakedly disguised
Like a light held deep within his heart
Surrendered dreams, lovers pulled apart
Giving up was easier than being scarred

And the lines have been drawn
The web’s been spun
He's in so deep, there's no hope of return
Now the roads been lost
And the bridge’s burned
Only the devil knows what lovers never learn

Winters crocus buried in the snow
The promise of a springtime he will never know
Starry, starry night hangs darks and deep
Over places where secret lovers sleep
Where fates of broken hearts lay cold and weak

And the lines have been drawn
The web’s been spun
He's in so deep, there's no hope of return
Now the roads been lost
And the bridge’s burned
Only the devil knows what lovers never learn
