when i was young
i believed my heart was shaped
just the way they portrayed it
on the television
and it was painted red
like a brick house

but lately i've learned
it's been sprayed black
from the bruises it's taken
it's shaken
i was mistaken
you make it pulse at times
but without you it's dead
without the beat it used to have
the chains have held it down
from falling out of my chest
it can't hold on any longer
it's dead and blackened
from your disgusting way
of loving me

mayday mayday
i'm going down
i was shot with an arrow
the engine has failed
i'm burning! burning …
someone explain
the pain
it's a shame
to have to ask you
to tell me the truth
do you love me?

was it fate?
is this a joke?
am i a fool?
for loving you?
am i doomed?
why can't you answer me?
i haven't even sewed your lips shut
to stop the lies
not yet
so answer me!

lately i've learned
it's been sprayed black
from the bruises it's taken
it's shaken
i was mistaken
you make it pulse at times
but without you it's dead
without the beat it used to have
the chains have held it down
from falling out of my chest
it can't hold on any longer
it's dead and blackened
from your disgusting way
of loving me

love me
kill me
just shoot me
i'm burning in your eyes
throw me the gasoline!
watch me burn!

I like it, great theme and choice of words. But they need to add a genre for the songs, if i read it i make it sound klike a rock song almost, but what if you had thought of it more as a slow saong, just a thought

but nonetheless good would love to read more

We think that you should make the begining more interesting. But still it's good!

Very powerful. I feel related to it but can't find the words to describe it. It takes you by storm with emotional feelings you've felt before but have never realized you had. Great Job.
