When one's life has hit rock bottom At the ripe old age of nineteen When the apple of life has gone rotten And hopeful plans wither to faded dreams
When one's confidence is shot And one's hope has slowly waned When one's faith in love is all but lost And one's self-esteem's been drained
When one's spent their life to overcome The pain of losing their one true one When one's reached out to touch only ice To be judged and rejected once, twice, thrice
When one's messages are deleted unread And pictures cannot fill the hole in one's heart When the only chance to hear your voice is in one's head One begins the onerous process of falling apart
When healing has begun and the dull throb doesn't beat one jaded When the sunlight breaks the clouds for the first time in dark ages When the black hole ***** a little less and the stars aren't so faded One will still be here waiting to hear an answer sought by fools and sages
Some things you just never get over, Even after all the stages of grief, and all the healing, The simplest things can still smack you right out of your body, A phone ringing, for example, why am I still waiting for that call?
