I'm not a mathematician But I know how to divide And subtract I saw you subtract your heart From this chamber Leaving apathy To count in its absence
Not to say I wasn't to blame But the numbers don't add up And the scars don't match the wounds Now I'm left being A fraction of the sum The value that came Undone.
A common denominator - Excuse the bad pun - Wasn't fear of loneliness Supposing we only made love To warm ourselves Is a distortion of the truth In spite of what we said If those words had no substance Then I might as well have Fallen into a different Destruction
I'm not sorry And I would want you to know That not everything is squared By you feeling brand-new - Thinking I was old news -
I don't need to tell you A fraction of the sum Still has a beating heart It's just not the same As it once was.
pretensions will lure you into a false sense of peace. if you let them.
