How much more can one heart take

How much more before it breaks


How much love to mend a heart

How much time until it falls apart


How many tears can my eyes spill

Before they dry up and fall still


How much heartache, how much pain

Will it take until I feel again


How long will I fall through the clouds

Will I crack before I hit the ground


How many nails break on the wall

How many shrieks on deaf ears fall


How many wounds should I bear

How much more should I care


How much more could my soul take

How much more before I break.
