want to know why i act heartless?
because i gave you my heart,
you crushed it and kept it.

You can't fight
for a place
in his heart
if
he
doesn't
have
one

It was my father who left me,
To discover a place of his own,
Lonely and disheartened I felt,
For a place called, "unknown."
Baffled was I,
As to why he suddenly left me,
I trembled alone in fear,
Was I a goner soon to be?
Where have my hopes gone?
Withered away to stone,
Leaving nothing but the past,
For a place called, "unknown."
Why do I feel resentment,
My father had a horrifying tone,
Had left me heartbroken,
For a place called, "unknown."
My heart beats like thunder,
As I shiver to the bone,
My father ruined me,
For a place called, "unknown."
Where will I go from here?
Too much my father had shown,
A martyr my father will always be,
For a place called, "unknown."

The exact day... He took a ride in that hearse
Down King st. And First
I was hurt
I tried to inflict that pain elsewhere
...
It didn't work
It made things worse
Made me know that I was gonna get put in the past tense
Makes a little sense why I don't have sense
I been tense every since then
But the things I do; don't invoke as amends
So am I hurt, or am I jus selfish?
I'm just lost
I'm just helpless
So I only do what I know
What I was taught
What they showed
Who is they?
Should I repeat something I learned from them?
I try to consider what I learned from him
But the words he spoke is not audible, to a mind that can't think logical
A heart that is sorrow
And a life that doesn't care about tomorrow
Is that even a life?
Well I'm alive
But I'm not ripe

I love to do what have been done to me
I don't like how slow she sings, but I help keep the record on repeat

Contribute to the hostility of the streets, which make each corner so bleak
Keep families weeping
Throwing away possessions
Cleaning
Sweeping

Bringing congregations together,
Tearing mutual amities apart

Not valuing life
Maybe I will when the light shines on me

Until then my path is dark
...
He's dead , how do I follow my heart?

This is for the people who fill the streets. With no where to go and the town they call home is broken into many pieces. I come from a difficult background but I don't let that define me. I move on and try to do whatever's necessary to be healthy at body, heart, and mind. There's hope , but we have to go get it. It don't wish on us. So someone out there feel me on this and can relate. One love

People call me heartless
But never wonder why
Even though I'm smiling
I really want to cry

People call me heartless
They cannot understand
When I look back to the past
It's footprints on the sand

Memories washed away
With the flowing of the tide
I want you to greet me again
With arms open wide

People call me heartless
They can never comprehend
When I was there with you
I thought it'd never end

But as was sure enough
You went, left me behind
I wish I had gone with you
If fate had been so kind

People call me heartless
I remember what I heard you say
"I'm off to join the army,
We'll meet again some day"

I waited every day for you
Until I got the letter
I knew it was for worse
But hoped it was for better

I opened up the envelope
And read what was there wrote
The words 'your lover is deceased'
My breath caught in my throat

I remembered what you said
On that summer night
You told me that we'd meet again
But you had to take your flight

People call me heartless
And maybe it is true
I no longer have a heart
For it belonged to you

I put the gun up to my head
In my eye formed a tear
I used my voice to comfort me
"I'll see you soon my dear"

I pulled the trigger quickly
Said one last goodbye
Thought about deaths impact
The people that would cry

But the world doesn't matter
The only thing I want to see
Is for me to be with you
And you to be with me

Everything was black
Then came a blinding light
My life flashed before my eyes
What a breathtaking sight

People call me heartless
But they don't understand
I couldn't let you walk alone
On the beach with all the sand

Now that I am with you
I can finally be content
I understand those words you said
And what they truly meant.

There's this thing
where my heart should be.
It's cold as ice,
hard as stone,
and broken into millions of pieces,
as small as sand.

It's supposed to be
loving, compassionate,
and kind.
But instead it's
hateful, deceitful,
and selfish.

It should be vibrant,
filled with color,
from red to green,
from blue to orange.
Instead it's as black
as the darkest of nights.

It was my father who left me,
To discover a place of his own.
Lonely and disheartened I felt,
For a place called, "unknown."
Baffled was I,
As to why he suddenly left me,
I trembled alone in fear,
Was I a goner soon to be?
Where have my hopes gone?
Withered away to stone,
Leaving nothing but the past,
For a place called, "unknown."
Why do I feel resentment,
My father had a horrifying tone,
Had left me heartbroken,
For a place called "unknown."
My heart beats like thunder,
As I shiver to the bone,
My father ruined me,
For a place called, "unknown."
Where will I go fro here?
To much my father had shown,
Had left me heartbroken,
For a place called, "unknown"

For someone so heartless,

For someone so heartless,
My heart hurts quite often.
A painful presence,
Not easy to ignore.

But who cares about a bitch,
A whore,
A heartless,
Heartless girl?

How could you be so heartless?

I thought I'd be able to sleep
If my thoughts, I refuse to keep.
Now more feelings start to peep;
Making me want to weep.

It's all because of you,
This is all you know to do.
There's nothing new,
You never changed nor grew.

I thought of doing something
To keep this from happening.
But it didn't have any meaning,
To you it was nothing.

It's all pointless.
All that I've done are timeless,
But still, you made it all worthless.
How could you be so heartless?
