What happens when your chest is empty?

When your heart has been taken?

How are we supposed to feel when we know we’ve been trapped?

When we’ve become today’s Tin-man…

When the tears won’t fall

When your heart can’t break

Call me with your sorrows

Sing to me

I will find you

I will send you an angel of Hope

And pray you hear my thoughts

They consist of only you

I dare you to call on me

To lift yourself and find me

Follow your un-breakable heart

Until you find the day you feel

I have crossed the world many times

To find your eyes smiling

Holding tomorrow

Holding a picture of us

Spinning on the edge of the world

The ecstasy overcomes me

And I fall into your arms

Fall into your skin

Throw my heart against the wall

Watch as it shatters

Like a falling tear bursting against your skin

If I have you, then I have life

No longer afraid

Break away with me

Throw the antidote into your box

Of stow-away memories

Spin me ‘round

On the edge of tomorrow

Where nothing is guaranteed

And everything is us
