I am not broken

For now I’m just bent

From all the words I’ve spoken

And all the time I’ve spent

I don’t know what to do

I write this in hope my words get through to you

But you hide behind your walls

I don’t run away when your gate falls

I want to get through to you

What have we come to?

 

Sometimes you don’t notice

How much your words sting me

Here’s the diagnosis

Don’t run away from me, please

Sometimes you don’t realize

How much your words heal me

It leads me to theorize

I think we’re meant to be

 

I am not broken

For now I’m just bent

From all the words I’ve spoken

And all the time I’ve spent

I don’t know what to do

I write this in hope my words get through to you

But you hide behind your walls

I don’t run away when your gate falls

I want to get through to you

What have we come to?

 

I think I fractured last night

You left me feeling worried

You said you were my knight

But sometimes the princess takes the lead

I’m trying to forgive you

I will need a little time

Can we begin anew?

The blame is all mine

 

I am not broken

For now I’m just bent

From all the words I’ve spoken

And all the time I’ve spent

I don’t know what to do

I write this in hope my words get through to you

But you hide behind your walls

I don’t run away when your gate falls

I want to get through to you

What have we come to?

 

Your apology

Made me feel bittersweet

I love you

And you love me

 

I don’t want to scare you

But I have a feeling

And I think you feel it too

That we’ll one day be sealed with a kiss and a ring

I imagine our future together

You said you dream of it likewise

You make me feel better

You leave me hypnotized

 

I am not broken

For now I’m just bent

From all the words I’ve spoken

And all the time I’ve spent

I don’t know what to do

I write this in hope my words get through to you

But you hide behind your walls

I don’t run away when your gate falls

I want to get through to you

What have we come to?

 

What have we come to?

I am not broken

I’m trying to get through to you

(Get through to you)
