HEARTBROKEN AND MENDED

Forgetting you have me a chance to open my eyes

And notice things I haven't before because I was busy noticing you,

Leaving every memory I had with you gave me a chance to

Make room for new memories,

Walking away from you gave me a chance to

Walk in new directions,

Looking away from you gave me a chance to see other people,

A new special guy that I would give anything to have,

A new guy to waste my time chasing.


I just don't understand why…

You made all those promises but you don't really fulfill them.

Like when you promised you'd smile for me

But all you did was glare or look away,

Like when you promised you're make me happy

But all you did was make me cry in the end,

Like when you promised me you'd stay

But all you did was walk away,

Like when you promised me you'd love me forever

But all you did was love me for a second,

Like when you promised me everything,

But left me with nothing,

Like when you promised me you'd keep your promises,

Somehow, that promise got lost in your words.


It was like I was trapped in a small, hard box,

And I was just waiting for someone to have the right key,

Just as I was about to give up, you came alone,

I thought you had the key,

I was so overjoyed,

But the sad thing was that you didn't,

But you tried opening me up anyways,

And that's what made me love you,

You tried and tried,

You got a knife and tried cutting the lock,

You got an axe, hitting the box's undefeated strength,

You carved your name on the box so I won't forget you,

My box has been hit so many times it got cuts, dents, holes,

But none are deep enough to reach me,

When you gave up trying to open me up,

I became sad,

I thought you'd keep trying,

But there you are,

Hitting another box,

Giving it dents and holes,

While I'm here in my box,

Hurt from all the hits.


Smiles can brighten up your day,

Laughs can make you brighter,

Love can show how bright you really are.
