Maybe people are right, broken relationships can't be fixed.

All the words get jumbled together, all emotions get mixed.

It's kind of like a puzzle where that one piece just won't fit.

I try hard to make things alright, but I don't think I'll make it.

I tried to forgive and to forget, I tried my very best to pretend,

That everything is perfect, that nothing awful ever happened.

When it all came down to it, I gave up on thoughts of revenge.

I guess we just can't heal relationships when the people change.

It's funny how a tiny scratch can get permanently etched in your heart.

Anything and everything you do to fix it just keeps on tearing you apart.

So now I think I'll stop trying to hide the truth behind a convenient lie.

Maybe people are right; I'm hurting myself this way by bothering to try.
