another piece of my heart is gone
but it was badly welded to begin with
like two puzzle pieces that were never meant to fit
my heart was ready to be gone with it

this is the not the first offense, you see
you've left before with a larger piece of me
then wandered on home with my hopes high
but our hearts had grown too differently
and they never quite intertwined right

so this time around i was hardly broken
your claimed land was already abandoned
it was easy to believe i never loved you
because you certainly never loved me.

so it'll grow back twice as strong,
this little heart of mine,
i've taught it how to get along
i'll find a piece that fits just fine.
