I wish I knew how to quit you*

Although my heart breaks at the thought.

But neither of us has a clue.

I gazed into your eyes and knew

This crazy love would come to naught.

I wish I knew how to quit you.

Sunshine, rain, and winter’s ice blue

In a maze of feelings we’re caught,

But neither of us has a clue.

Deep in my heart, my love is true

No matter how hard my mind fought.

I wish I knew how to quit you.

Now it comes, the turn of the screw

With pain and regret my life’s fraught

But neither of us has a clue.

Turns out I should have fought for you

I miss you and the love you brought.

I wish I knew how to quit you

But neither of us had a clue.

*From the film Brokeback Mountain.
