can't break what's already broken


and don't you know that—

without you here with me

i'm a desolated soul

waiting for your return;


but i wait day by day

still you aren't here—

i'm sinking in further

even this i can admit


and don't you realize that—

if you're not present

i lose myself in darkness

until you bring the light;


for your radiance brings me

the happiness i so need—

and the soothing love

i desperately want to feel


and don't you understand that—

i need you here to keep me sane;

to keep me from making mistakes

help me seek the truth of today


but at least you can't break me

more than i already am with

your absence now because you

can't break what's already broken
