An open wound, an open heart,

The one that you just tore apart.

So carelessly and vain,

And didn’t bother to explain.

Music pouring from inside,

A long sad song I try to hide.

What am I supposed to do?

I can’t stop thinking about you.

The music box you gave to me,

Is now a distant memory.

Because you’re gone and I’m still here,

You are my pain and every tear.

Hurt is all your picture brings,

Wishing to be you and not feel a thing.

To have your skin and quench my thirst,

Instead you left me at my worst.

You’ve been a secret and nothing more,

I’ll love you always, my paramour.

But you have hurt me so recklessly,

I can’t forgive what you have done to me.

I was the biggest of your mocks,

It’s time I close the music box.
