Hi Tamaraz,

I hear the stanza as expressing that there's a "desire" present that, if acted upon, will result in one of the partners in
the song's relationship doing something that will destroy the "love" (present at least as a "vision" or possibility). Desire seems to be tied to be tied to betrayal, a further carrying forth of the crushing of vows mentioned in the opening stanza.
The consequences of acting upon the desire, the song character opines, would be going against humility (the subordination of selfishness/ego to the relationship). What do you think?
