Are hearts just made for breaking
To tell others you came out strong
When you can still feel the pain?
Is the heart made for bending
To test your adversities
When everything remains the same?
Broken pieces on the ground
Hard to see when there’s no one around.
This porcelain heart breaks for the last time
If it breaks again I’ll surely die.
Someone mend me back together
Oh God, I can’t take this forever.
Something has got to give in
A change in course, a new direction,
Or stay focused on the right path.
What curse has hold of me – leave!
The agony is insane
Be gone with your deadly wrath.
Hearts are not made for breaking
Nor are they for anyone’s taking.
If this heart breaks one more time
It won’t again be able to shine.
