no step to answer

what holds him

claimed a heart

that seeks devotion

there on a concrete map

he’d always know

stood the bittersweet

antonio

could not leave

the life that chose him

repeat the words

he left unspoken

now  you can walk his street

and never know

love’s retreat

or the bittersweet

antonio

chorus :

    when you’re bruised

    but awake to where you stand

    you hold what’s certain

    what it takes to make a man

    flood or drought

    believe or doubt

    to give and understand

    the answer,  the retreat

    for the bittersweet

                                 antonio

bridge :

  blinded by day

  no phantom of a moon

  a love that travelled  silent

  from where it shone

         now there’s no map

                  back to the moon

chorus :

    when you’re bruised

    but awake to where you stand

    you hold what’s certain

    what it takes to make a man

    flood or drought

    believe or doubt

    to give and understand

    the answer the retreat

    for the bittersweet

                                 antonio

can’t mend a time

that’s broken

leave out  the hours

that won’t be forgotten

can’t redraw a line to love

now devotion

will never give enough

to be complete

for the bittersweet

                        antonio

no, he’ll never give enough

                    to be complete

the bittersweet

                        antonio
