Broken but Alive (Loner)

When truth and lies become one,
who can you trust;
where do you run?

When death turns to life,
and light turns to dark.
What do you know, the apocalypse starts.

When love goes crashing into the sea,
who you gonna turn to;
when your left standing lonely?

I’m just a loner,
Fighting to be free.
I’m just a loner,
So why can’t you let me be?

What happens next,
When you’re put to the test?
Do you actually confess?

Do you hide your life?
Do you hide your scars?
Do you hide your strife?

Show them who you ARE!

You’re a painting in the attic
waiting to be dusted off.
You’re an old memory
waiting to be thought of.

You’re a loner,
Standing in the dark.
You’re a loner,
With a broken heart.

Don’t cry for me,
I’m already too far gone.
Just set me free,
I’m livin all alone.

Broken but happy,
I keep on livin life.
Aren’t we all just tryin to survive?

I lay awake so I won’t dream of you at night.
Yeah you are a dagger in my heart.
But I’m alive, and I promise you I will survive.

I’m a girl with feelings, not just your backup plan.
And you no longer have me in the palm of your hand.

I’m a loner,
standing in the dark.
I’m a loner
Yeah you no longer got my heart.

Thanks. This was after a breakup and I felt so alone... I had to write something to get the thoughts out of my system. I'm glad you liked it.
