It still feels like a dream
Something that I will perhaps still wake up from
There is fog in my eyes I don't see clearly
There is something I always wanted desperately
They always said that I need to let my guard down
Who would've known that my heart would get broken the first time I did
I should've known what you were up to
I was slowly crawling my way out of this pit of sadness
You said you loved me and you just dragged me right back
This may sound like madness
I spent all my life protecting my heart
The walls you broke with just your smile
I am still grieving the death of my heart
You made your moves so smart
I could've never known all your promises were lies
The way you kissed me gave me direction
It was nothing but perfection
I am lost again.
This trauma you've put me through seems surreal
So if I'm dreaming, someone please wake me up.
I am broken down
Everywhere I go I wear a frown
My heart is broken
I tried to put my heart together
But what do you do when you don't know which piece belongs where?
I am still alive because my body refuses to give up
I have been dead inside
But maybe one day I'll feel better again.
