  • I?ll start this broken heart
    I?ll fix it up so it will work again
    Better than before
    Then I?ll star in a mystery
    A tragic tale of all that?s yet to come
    Fingers crossed there will be love

    But I get carried away with every day
    And every fantasy
    the deeper the wound,
    the harder I swoon and wish that that was me

    So much to say
    But no words to convey
    The loneliness building with each passing day
    But I?m getting used to it, you have to get used to it

    I?ll devise the best disguise
    A brand new look and take them by surprise
    They?ll never guess what?s not inside

    I?ll express myself with ease,
    With confidence and character complete
    With fingers crossed they?ll talk to me

    But I get carried away with every page
    In every magazine
    The cheaper the thrill
    the deeper I fill my head with blasphemy

    So much to say
    But No words to convey
    The loneliness building with each passing day
    But I?m getting used to it, you have to get used to it

    I?ll destroy this useless heart
    I?ll fuck it up so it?ll never beat again
    Not just for me but for anyone

    But I get carried away
    with every phrase and made up malady
    The longer I hide behind these lies,
    The more I disintegrate

    So much to say
    But no words to convey
    The loneliness building with each passing day
    But I never get used to it, you just have to live with it Writer/s: JESSE MACK JOHNSON, JOSHUA ALLEN CAIN, JUSTIN COURTNEY PIERRE, MATTHEW SCOTT TAYLOR, TONY RICHARD THAXTON
