but you never knew
that secretly my mind was a warzone
just waiting to take over.

when I was convinced you would break my heart,
but I ever knew you secretly
engraved a heart on your wrist
everyday to remind yourself
that everyone deserves to feel love.)
I admit that you always owned my heart
since we convinced ourselves to believe
that we are bulletproof,
but when I saw you shoot the trigger
I knew there was no such things as fairy-tales.

because it reminded me
that I could always hold you high
whenever we were broken
just to feel.)
(Broken hearts aren't supposed to beat,
I'll never stop loving you.)

Dead Memories.My mind keeps on replayingDead Memories. in Scraps More Like This
memories of us each and every night
as I lay restless on my bed,
laying my head on a pillow
as I sing myself to sleep.
I am lost in the shadows
as I'm trying to find my way back home,
but I know that my home was always with you.
I told you that I would change,
that I'd paint the sky black for you
so it can match your broken heart.
I told you that I'd catch a rainbow in a heartbeat for you,
but I know that I was never good enough to be yours.
All I ever wanted was for you to say the words ''I love you,''
but we've always just been a dead memory
living in the past.

Just hear my voice in your heart
and know that I'm with you tonight.''
It seems like only yesterday when I saw your face.
(I just want to call your name
but I know you'll never answer again.
It's so hard to say goodbye,

You were always the one who would look into my eyes
and make me believe in life again.

but you were more of a part of me than you ever knew.)

as she wills herself to forget about him,
but it feels like so long ago since she's ever heard ''I love you''
since she feels like her heart is silently dying
because the edges are cracked
as she silently hums her favorite song,
but once she finally realizes that you always sang her song,
she cries herself to sleep
until she can't feel anymore pain.
Whenever she wakes up,
she feels an aching in her chest
as she looks into the mirror to see circles under her eyes
that are covering up her beautiful blue eyes
that had you chasing for her.
(and she never has felt so lost and alone before.)
She wonders if she was ever strong,
because now she finally realizes that you were the only thing
that ever made her feel like she was on top of the world.

when your lungs feel collapsed
and your heart feels like a battle wound
because you can never feel again?

because I knew I was a fighter
since I never had a chance to be anything else.
I always had to wash your scars off for you
and be your little solider
as you cried in my arms
because you said that you lost your heart in the war.
It always killed me when you cried,
I'll never be the same again.
You always pleaded the words ''please be better than me''
like they were a part of a broken song
that came from right inside your heart,

in the most dangerous ways
to try and twist my heart

because our world is like walking on fire,
but hell is nothing compared
to living without you.

you were just too blind.)

but that's only because your smile
was like one in a million.

since your smile has always made my heart skip a beat.)

waiting for you to come home,

Nothing hurts her world.)
