How to Love You

For the first time
You were the last one
But don't let it get to you, baby
'Cause I was just having fun

I was never lonely
You were just the only
Light I could find
On this dark and empty street

'Cause nobody knows how to love you
They only see what they want instead
Nobody knows how to make love to you
You're just a means to an end

And all you've got
Is a secret garden
With all your life
You try to guard it

The scattered hedges
Discarded flowers
The love for yourself
Is your hidden power

Wake in the morning
I won't be there
