Find a New Heart To Destroy

By , Pinckney, MI
V1: Why does your mascara drip
Like black crystals
That paint your face
When you're the one
Who burdens me with the thorns
Of the rose you were supposed to be
Another finger prick
And I'm bleeding
My love
The drops you don't catch
As they fall
The dead love of what
Wasn't meant to be.

Chorus: You could have at least caught me!
Let me know when you were planning
To throw my heart out the window
So I could have
Said my good-byes
Had time to whisper one last prayer
Before I fell.

V2: You're words say sorry
But your eyes say otherwise
This confusion is burning a hole
In the black vortex
Of nothingness
That was meant to be
My lifeline to beat in my chest
But it's gone still!
Where's my pulse?
Fingers gripping my wrists
But I know
It's not there.

Chorus: You could have at least caught me!
Let me know when you were planning
To throw my heart out the window
So I could have
Said my good-byes
Had time to whisper one last prayer
Before I fell.

V3: Where does hope begin?
Because I know I have fallen
From chance
To the depths of gone
This is where "had" began.
The past tense of our devotion
Starts now
As you stand before me
Your hands clean
While I grip my heart
And watch...
The love fall.

Chorus: You could have at least caught me!
Let me know when you were planning
To throw my heart out the window
So I could have
Said my good-byes
Had time to whisper one last prayer
Before I fell.

V4: Turn your back
Walk away
I know you want to
But I've got you transfixed
Questioning your motives
What you don't know
Is that you've done your part.
Now let me cope.
As you walk away.
Give me a chance
To do my half of this deal
You turn
And I drop my heart
As you walk away
From everything that could have been
I walk towards
Everything that will be
Knowing your chapter has been read.
It's time to burn the pages
And start my story again.
From scratch.
Before I fall.
Fall.
