Open the door to my heart
You will see the light is off
Canít find the switch, my heart is a loft
That no one is venturing into.
Ignore me then, so what if it hurts me and its hurting me.
If my heart is a boat
Then it is struggling to stay afloat
On a treacherous sea.
Donít feel strong today
Feel like Iím watching life pass me by
Better not cry
Got to feel strong today.
My faith is flickering like candles
Burning holes in my heart
Wish I could go back to the start
And be naÔve again.
So what if it hurts me and youíre hurting me
Want to hold my head up but you make me look down
Youíve turned my smile into a frown Ė
Broken smashed up heart.
Donít know where I fit in, feel like the missing piece of a jigsaw
Made up of a million different astounding colours, struggling to find my place
Canít hide the hurt in my face
Trying to catch up with life.
This is the restless longing of youth
A story of a heart longing to be loved
Looking up above
But thereís no answer.
Iím not a ghost so donít look through me
Iím not an illusion so donít pretend you canít see me
Iím not beneath you so donít look down at me
Iím not a bad person so donít look away from me.
Mirror gaze tormenting me in the storm of life
Have to keep faith even when the wind blows the candle out
Have to keep my eyes up in this life full of doubt
Have to stay strong.
