It is about giving someone all your trust just to have it broken

Standing here looking down 

What do I see inside my hands,

my beating heart right from the start 

I tried to give it to you I tried something new

but now I stand alone in the dark looking down at my heart 

holding it to my chest trying to catch my breath 

i drop to my knee's and beg it please 

to keep on beating its pulse fleeting 

I scream someone help me 

but theres no one around 

i try to put it back in, theres no use trying

it wont fit, my body has rejected it

my chest is closed leaving it empty 

but still look at what i see 

a bleeding heart left in my hand 

once belonging to a man 

what should i do should i just quit 

should i just abandon it 

or keep on trying 

nurse it back to health and try again later

but who knows maybe next time the pain would be greater....
