So much suffering and sorrow
Lend me a heart, let me borrow
I’m all numb from the pain
Scars heal but never fade
I feel only with my jaded brain
Some days I don’t feel quite sane
I see a light at the end of the tunnel
Always turns out to be into a mirage
So near, yet so far
I can’t trust this heart of mine
Always such a let down
It breaks into unnumbered pieces
When it love but shouldn’t
When it trusts but shouldn’t.
