LOVE'S NOT DEFINED THIS WAY

She's like a tiny kitten
In a little child's hands
You must watch her carefully
By now, you should understand

If you really love this girl
As you've always claimed to do
Then why don't you protect her
Not find trials to drag her through

~~~*Chorus*~~~
She's a singing stream...
Runs pure and sweet...
She believes in ruby slippers
And she loves fairy tales
Rainbows aren't just colors
But a promise that won't fail..
She should not feel broken
Seem haunted and afraid..
How can you claim to love her
Love's not defined this way
~~*~~

She follows, but she's fragile
And there's danger where you lead
If you can't keep her safe boy
Then you'd better set her free

Don't say things that are ugly
When she's beautiful inside
I don't think you deserve her
But she's loved you all this time

~~~*Chorus*~~~
She's a singing stream...
Runs pure and sweet...
She believes in ruby slippers
And she loves fairy tales
Rainbows aren't just colors
But a promise that won't fail..
She should not feel broken
Seem haunted and afraid..
How can you claim to love her
Love's not defined this way
~~*~~

~~*Finale*~~
It's so hard to see...
A pretty running stream..
Blocked off
Not free~flowing
No outlet for it's dreams...
You're the dam
Where's your shame
Love's not defined this way
~~*~~
