How the heart aches

How the heart aches

In the darkest night

When life seems so complicated

And I wish I could be sedated

To sleepy slumbers.


Loneliness makes the saddest chord

Heartache cuts the string

And all I can see is confusion

How to get the fusion?

How to be me


When everybody wants me to be someone else

I could read a hundred books and tell you

About a million artists, a million stories about

The world and cities and why and how and

Who but Im just me just me.


The sky has no colour tonight

And I long for the shore of an island

For purples and reds and pinks

And for my heart not to be sinking

On drowning boat out on the sea.


How life takes you into its claws

Then throws you back out so quick

How the world goes so slow yet so fast

How the heart breaks

How the heart aches.
