When the scars heal,
And the pain gets numb,
And the continuous sore in my heart gets unnoticeable,
And the photos I stuck in the bottom of my closet are thrown away,
And I don't find myself crying over something I can't do anything about,
And I find someone new to talk to,
And all the letters I wrote are forgotten,
And your face; beautiful, pretty, smiling at me all the time and your voice calling me, telling me you love me fades away slowly,
And your touch and holding hands for hours and hours loses its warmth,
And you become nothing but a short chapter in my life,
And I stop missing you,
And your cold expression doesn't hurt me anymore,
And your words good and bad stop holding meaning to me,
And I move on and find new things to do,
And I find my dream again and start working on it,
And I start to forget whether your name started with an R or an L,
And I stop hearing news about you,
Then I will smile once again.

I get so high around you
But I'm not on any drugs
So tell me do you feel the same
Do you float up into space too

Fly with me to Neptune
And to all the stars beyond
I'll hold your hand and you can hold mine

Take me to the end of your galaxy.

I smile at your question.
You hesitated, then nodded.
But I'm breaking inside.
And the me inside of me
Screaming at you
"I'm breaking"
Why couldn't you see?
Why can't you see me?
But I know.
It's not your fault.
I just didn't let you see.
Can I let you see?
But
Will you leave me if I let you see?
If you run away, please don't run away
I'll never be okay if you run away
Inside I'm grasping, and this way
I'll never be okay either way
So I say
"Actually,
No."

the scars on my wrist
keep increasing
look normal in public
inside i'm ruined
i'm breaking too hard i can't believe it
am i really the person i used to be
the bright cheery popular girl
broken inside
i dreamed a happy ending
now i just want a quick one
i can feel it inside of me
slowing down
ceasing to burn
and i don't want to stay here anymore

The steel cut through my skin.
The tears washed away the blood.
The smile covered my pain.

I didn't want to do it.
I didn't have to do it.
I did it.
But the satisfaction
You get from

That cold and sharp hunk of steel.

I'll now let go of the memories
The patchwork now falling apart in my hands.
Our memories stop here
They fade colorfully

Oh do you remember that day, what you said
The useless arguments that we repeated
Now lets part, it's a mess. I'm so sorry.

Tick tock, tick tock, you let go of my hands
Ding ****, ding ****, and you fade away.
Tick tock, tick tock, one step, two steps
Ding ****, ding ****, fall apart again

If I just hated, hated you to begin with
We wouldn't have met or said goodbye
But I would fall in, fall in love with you again
And spend the night in tears.

If I, if I, burn it all away
And end up erasing all of it
But I still won't, still won't, ever forget you
Why am I such a fool?

It's just not following you who always stood up and left first
It's nothing serious, just like our love.

Flick tap, flick tap, I delete you
Swipe tap, swipe tap, A. R. --> T
Flick tap, flick tap, your number and texts
Swipe swipe swipe swipe... erase it all
As my tears fall to the ground.

If I didn't, didn't know you at all
This would never have happened
But turns out we weren't, we weren't meant to be at all
Lets never meet again.

Let's end it, end it, end us now
Did you ever love me?
Now I will, I will, I will let you go
Although I might regret a little

If you'd told me, told me, everything at first
We'd have left each other with a clear mind
You had a lot of, lot of work until now
I hope you're happy after you leave
Yes, this is, this is, really ending
You never loved me to begin.

I won't hold on anymore to the
Mess I thought was love that we created
Now I won't love you anymore
Simple, right? Lets never meet again.
This is an English translation of the Japanese song Patchwork Staccato.

I'm lost in a maze
Called you
I'm trying to find the way out

You can't help me out
So I guess I'll figure out myself
Where I truly am

You won't, you can't
Help me
No, not anymore

Not when you've crushed me
With your sweet little lies
Me barely hanging on

No, now I have to get out
Because I can't bear to stay here
Anymore.
