Hearts Made for Breaking

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!

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.
