Lust And Love
Aren't The Same


One foolish moment can destroy
A chance for lasting happiness
With someone who loved you
Until you made a foolish mistake.


Lust and love aren't the same
Love comes from inside hearts
While lust is an outward thing
That often causes regret and pain.


A man who truly loves a woman
Won't surrender to physical lust
And destroy her sacred trust because
Lust and love aren't the same.


True love is a beautiful thing
But a moment of lust isn't love
And often destroys love because
Lust and love aren't the same.
