A heart that bleeds
that’s what she always wanted
A heart that bleeds
that’s what she needed
to understand
that there’s still something left inside
that there’s still life inside

She had read about it
connections that exist immediately
feelings that go beyond one’s mind
She had dreamed, hoped
but didn’t believe it

Until that day
when she met him
Scarred for life
the smile seldom, too precious
One moment, one conversation
Could the stories come true after all?

She wished she could
overcome concerns
She wished she could
have her head in the clouds
But she can’t get rid of it
the voices of the past

And as much as she tries
to hold on to him
the memories fade
the feelings are hurt
and she reaches into the void
All that remains is a heart that’s bleeding.
