break my heart

wandering through my feelings finding myself alone
searching out a meaning to carry me home
i was looking for my life in you till illusion broke apart
now i realize the truth breathe in my own heart

i was leaving my dreams behind slowly going out of my mind
misery all the while and i didn’t know why
caught in forever schemes till my body screamed
i have needed you far too much
crying with or without your touch
with or without your touch

so break my heart babe break it one more time
come on and break my heart till i know it’s mine
break my heart babe how many times till my soul flies?

fear of losing what i never owned shut the door to all i can know
my way on an open path all for sadness and a greater wrath
so i had to turn the bend let that part of the journey end
seeing joy in a simple way of letting go and embracing the day

now with my feelings here made all the more real
finding strength in my core to know for sure
wanting you less is loving you more
wanting you less is loving you more

so break my heart babe break it one more time
come on and break my heart till i know it’s mine
break my heart babe how many times till my soul flies?
