Heart Given Heart Taken
The heart is given
The heart is taken
Twisted and broken
Served to you on a platter
So you can remember over and over again what had happened
You give your heart hope there the one
They take your heart
They twist and pull
Why is it so hard
To find the right one
Why is so hard
To find an honest one
Why is it so hard to find a caring one
You give your heart
They take it in
They hold onto it
Until you run out of what they want
They toss it back
And throw you to the curb
Make you feel like dirt
For ever loving them
You take your heart and mend it once again
Swearing not to give it out again
That person walks in
You think they are perfect
You offer your heart
They take your soul
They treat you right
They make you feel loved
They lie to your face
They cheat behind your back
They walk on your soul
They use you for you have
They pull the heart strings once more
Then lie to you a little more
They have taken the time to get to know you more
They guilt you into more
Make you feel bad for wanting to leave
You put up with abuse until you have enough
You run away far far away
You keep on running scared of what has just happened
Never ever want to give your heart out again
Will keep it in a box
A tightly secured box
Where no one can have it

Umm don't even ask where that came from.
