Pull out my heart like a pin

November 1, 2007

Pull out my heart like a pin
and toss this love grenade.
Watch it explode, lying broken
like the promises you've made.

Since you have left me
I have fallen,
and broken like your picture frame.
Lying in front of denying forces
knowing you'd forget my name.

Break me, break me
shatter me into one thousand pieces.
Leave me, take me
all your lies give me no reason.
I have fallen overboard
and your reasons make the burden more.

Prominade across the fragments,
and try so hard to hide the pain.
I can see it in your eyes,
right through this lonesome masquerade.
Please do me a favor,
don't wait and let it fade.
Do it quick and do it now,
break everything we've ever made.

Break me, break me
shatter me into one thousand pieces.
Leave me, take me
all your lies give me no reason.
I have fallen overboard
and your reasons make the burden more.
