Nothing Hurts Like This

I wore my heart upon my sleeve
to live a broken piece of dream
I fight back, fall in, fall apart
nothing aches like a broken heart

Set fire to me, I'll burn
to rise as bright as the sun
I'm drowning in an ocean of grief
Let me, so I can set myself free

It's hard, but it has to be
But how could I not see it coming
Not once, not twice, not thrice
The heart takes the cut precise

There is confusion, how do I act
all these emotions distract
Like dark, deep, dangerous end
That circles, like play-pretend

No shields, no armour, I need
It's a battle I win or lose, I bleed
I walk barefoot with pieces glued
Cause I got no chances to lose

It's funny how placid I fought
I could have let out the thoughts
A stronger self I got to build
Cause not all dreams go unfulfilled

I am glad how it'll lead me miles
It's just that it'll take a while
And when the darkest night hits
It breaks my heart to bits
