For Those With Battered Hearts

You left with my heart in your hand,
And with my emotions hanging just by a strand.
Who knew that this love would turn out to be fatal,
I could have left but I just wasn't able.
As you walked away a part of me died,
And you left me with a missing piece inside.

This hurt,
This hurt,
Left a hole in my heart.
This love,
This love,
Tore our friendship apart.
And now I'm left with a gaping hole in my chest,
But again I guess it's all for the best.
This love,
This love,
Killed the good in me.
This heart,
This heart,
Hates what this person turned out to be.
This knife,
This knife,
Is still twisted in my back,
But this heart,
Oh this bruised and battered heart still needs its other half.

I stare at you with misty eyes,
I never thought that we would ever say our goodbyes.
Playing back memories just to pass the time,
How could I lose what wasn't even mine?
And when you turn back I'll be saying,
My heart is still yours for the taking!

This hurt,
This hurt,
Left a hole in my heart.
This love,
this love,
Tore our friendship apart.
And now I'm left with a gaping hole in my chest,
But again I guess it's for the best.
This love,
This love,
Killed the good in me.
This heart,
This heart,
Hates what this person turned out to be.
This knife,
This knife,
Is still twisted in my back,
But this heart,
Oh this bruised and battered heart still needs its other half.

My heart is barely beating,
Can you even hear my shallow breathing?
This is what you do to me when you leave,
How the hell could you do this to me?

This hurt,
This hurt,
Left a hole in my heart.
This love,
this love,
Tore our friendship apart.
And now I'm left with a gaping hole in my chest,
But again I guess it's for the best.
This love,
This love,
Killed the good in me.
This heart
This heart,
Hates what this person turned out to be.
This knife,
This knife,
Is still twisted in my back,
But this heart,
Oh this bruised and battered heart still needs its other half.

But this battered heart can't take your sick mind games anymore,
And its beats will slow to a stop when you walk out that door.
But it eases the pain in my chest,
Maybe this is all for the best.

This is really good, you have a great talent for song lyrics, and I like how you made sure to put in all the chorus's, not all people do. It's good to get in the details. 5/5-I love it!
