​A Love That Cannot Be

This song is by The Dignity Of Labour and appears on the album Tired Hands (1993).

Remember when you couldn't understand
Why she brought you to the ground?
And as your pillars crumbled into sand
She turned away without a sound

Now you try to gather your emotions

Take the heart away and what remains?
Tears for a love that cannot be

Don't surrender to the past
Remove those chains
Set your tired body free
Take the heart away and what remains?
Tears for a love that cannot be

Now the tattered bonds have been broken
No more are you punished and enslaved by your regrets

Don't surrender to the past
Remove those chains
Set your tired body free
Take the heart away and what remains?
Tears for a love that
