With hollow eyes and angry words you handed me your heart
There were so many broken pieces
I wanted to fix it but couldn’t start.
I don’t know how to piece it together
And bring a smile to your face
I think mine is breaking too
Just to know you are in pain.
My words are but an echo
That you hear but don’t understand
My hands are no more than two
That cannot carry your pain and hold your hand.
I want to help but don’t know how
I can only curse my own misgivings
How can we both cry out for help
And be burned while we are living?
I know I’m not the person you want
Nor can I give you what you need
I can only tell you what is real
While your heart stays with me.
The sun does set, and always rises
We hold this to be true
I promise that as the sun does rise
One day you shall rise too.
I know that in the dark we find
What scares us to the core
I know that it seems endless
I know there are things we can never be sure.
Continue crying out
As I cry out for you
Don’t ever stop searching for yourself
And know that love follows you.
I know your heart is heavy
That is why I carry it for now
Continue to search for yourself
So that your own love you can allow.
I know my words may be meaningless
I can accept this to be true
But I mean it with my whole heart
When I say that I love you.
