Choice or Dilemma?
You protest, “I’ll be dead in ten years.”
It may be truth, then I refuse to lose
you now to martyrdom, duty and obligation.
In our part-time love, lived in haste
Let me show you how we can recreate
A cherished, domestic simplicity.
A life to lead, not to be led and wasted
Blood ties will refresh and renew
an understanding that’s based in truth.
Journey from forbidden to the accepted
Through lands they wouldn’t let us dream
Pack your suitcase, set us all free.
