Song for the Broken Hearted
Who knew that love would have such a bitter taste?
And the bliss of ignorance could never be replaced?
That the day would come where I would have to set you free,
Or that when you left you’d take the better part of me,
And while they say the brightest stars leave the blackest holes,
They forgot to mention it would ever be this cold,
With nothing left to hold (no, no).
Still, part of you won’t seem to go away,
Reminds me how I hate this each and every day,
And I’m well aware of all the consequences,
I see how loving you has left me so defenseless,
So you can keep that broken heart that you quietly stole,
You can take those broken dreams, but you won’t take my soul,
This love has taken its toll (on me).
And, maybe it’s true; we’ve made every mistake,
But, baby, you’ll still be the hardest habit I’ve had to break,
I’ll turn my head to the skies, pray that love leave these eyes,
Cause now I know how much a heart must break before it is wise,
Seems like when we love, it just leaves a scar,
And all the new cuts cover where the old ones are,
We couldn’t have known, we would lose much,
But that doesn’t mean I won’t still miss your touch,
I’ve just got to let you go (don’t go).
If you asked me right now, I’d have to say that I’m fine,
Then drown all of the lies I’d tell inside this bottle of mine,
Because the truth is, my dear, I can’t handle these tears,
Or feeling like we’ve hurt enough to last a thousand years,
And how the bed that we shared, is still made up on your side,
Can’t stand looking back and wondering if we really tried,
I guess now we’ll never know (no, no).
