Hearts Are Broken
You touched my face and said goodbye, and looking back, you met my eyes. Looking back, regret perhaps? You left me wondering why.
Another love who claimed your heart? Did you swear to her you'd never part? I'll never know, I love you so...
My eyes fill up burning tears, tracks of sorrow for all the year. I never even had a clue, for all I ever saw was you..
How can a light that burned so bright, turn to darkness overnight? Can fall to pieces on the ground, my broken hearts in tatters now.
Tattered, shattered, ripped to shreds, a broken thing now halfway dead. You left me gasping for each breath, drowning in this little death.
I rise up from the bed we shared, and look into the bathroom mirror to try and see what's wrong with me that you should walk away.
I look into wet eyes so blue and see the me that you saw, too. My inner self stared back at me, and told a bitter truth.
I see there's nothing wrong with me, no reason why you set me free, no reason that you broke my heart. I've been the same right from the start.
I refuse to play the game of taking on ME all the blame, of wondering why you didn't stay. My heart is good and strong.
So like a Phoenix I will rise, wipe the teardrops from my eyes, and never will I compromise the person that I am.
For I've been faithful all this time, loyal, true and always kind, a gentle soul who's love is blind, and I will heal this heart inside.
So walk away is what I say, I'll live to see another day, another love will come my way, and you'll be soon forgotten.
I'll put my heartache on a shelf, and live to love despite myself. My head I will hold high and proud, and shout "I LOVE YOU!" clear and loud.
