I lived but I lost Love

Iím having a hard time admitting
Iím not the man I thought I was.
Iíve come up short when it mattered most
I have failed when it comes to love.

I ignored what you were feeling.
I put my needs first.
Took the last swallow of water.
While you died of thirst.

I saved myself, deserted you.
I lived but I lost love.

You found rescue in the nick of time
In the arms of another man.
He gave you the last of his canteen.
You left grief in the desert sand.

I ignored what you were feeling.
I put my needs first.
Took the last swallow of water.
While you died of thirst.

I saved myself, deserted you.
I lived but I lost love.

Yes he gives without a thought for himself.
Heíd rather die than for you to see harm.
He is everything that I never was.
And I am the man with a selfish heart.

I ignored what you were feeling.
I put my needs first.
Took the last swallow of water.
While you died of thirst.

I saved myself, deserted you.
I lived but I lost love. (2x)
