Song for the Broken Hearted

Song for the Broken Hearted

Ezra Blackwood

Who knew that love would have such a bitter taste?

And the bliss of ignorance could never be replaced?

That the day would come where I would have to set you free,

Or that when you left you’d take the better part of me,

And while they say the brightest stars leave the blackest holes,

They forgot to mention it would ever be this cold,

Alone,

With nothing left to hold (no, no).


Still, part of you won’t seem to go away,

Reminds me how I hate this each and every day,

And I’m well aware of all the consequences,

I see how loving you has left me so defenseless,

So you can keep that broken heart that you quietly stole,

You can take those broken dreams, but you won’t take my soul,

No, no,

This love has taken its toll (on me).


And, maybe it’s true; we’ve made every mistake,

But, baby, you’ll still be the hardest habit I’ve had to break,

I’ll turn my head to the skies, pray that love leave these eyes,

Cause now I know how much a heart must break before it is wise,

Seems like when we love, it just leaves a scar,

And all the new cuts cover where the old ones are,

We couldn’t have known, we would lose much,

But that doesn’t mean I won’t still miss your touch,

No, no

I’ve just got to let you go (don’t go).


If you asked me right now, I’d have to say that I’m fine,

Then drown all of the lies I’d tell inside this bottle of mine,

Because the truth is, my dear, I can’t handle these tears,

Or feeling like we’ve hurt enough to last a thousand years,

And how the bed that we shared, is still made up on your side,

Can’t stand looking back and wondering if we really tried,

No, no,

I guess now we’ll never know (no, no).

Regret

In this moment of silence

Don’t pity me my pain

It’s here in isolation

I fall on your disdain

For all that pulls me under

I know there is a Hell

There’s nothing I know better

I know it all so well

Shamed into my solitude

And left with little care

Lost within my speechless grief

My glorious despair

I had hope and I believed

But yet the sun still set

And darkness fell upon me

To bathe me in regret

I Need You

Thought that I’d be better off alone

Thought that I could hide

Pretend that I am fine

Can’t make it out here all on my own

And hard as I may try

Need you here by my side


Gets harder every day

Count the seconds I’m away

Never thought a heart like mine could break


Can’t go on

With nothing but a memory of you

Can’t hold on

I wonder if you feel the same way too

Can’t be strong

Without the one I need

To get me through each rainy day

And make it okay

I need you


Never felt quite this lost before

Like I’m walking in place

Searching for your face

And all the things that I am sorry for

I didn’t understand

The good thing that I had


Gets harder every day

Should have never walked away

How could I have made such a big mistake?


Will never find another

Made for each other

I know we were

Was so sure

Loved everything about you from head to toe

Your heart and soul, I hope you know

Every piece of me, misses what we used to be

Now i see


Can’t go on

With nothing but a memory of you

Can’t hold on

I wonder if you feel the same way too

Can’t be strong

Without the one I need

To get me through each rainy day

And make it okay

I need you
