Song Lyrics: A Sad Love Song

This is a song about grieving for a relationship that has ended - about not wanting to let go and hoping for a chance to try again. It is a heartfelt song, expressing deep emotion and deep feeling. The tempo is quite slow. I don't write melody, so this song requires a collaborator. In my head, I hear it as a haunting song, passionate and accompanied by an acoustic guitar.




Why Can't You Hear My Heart?


Do you still think of me

Or is it for you a chapter gone?

'Cause I can't let go so easily

I'm not so good at ending songs


I can't sit here and just pretend

Can't just shoot you outta my head

My soul is bleeding openly

Didn't see what was coming ahead


Oh why

Why can't you still feel me

Why can't you hear my heart anymore?

Let's give us just one more go

You know we've done it before


Can't face the end, so final

Dead dreams, like broken glass

I put my words on the line

For us, just for one more chance


Our love was truth, so real

Baby, we swam so deep

And my open scars can't heal

Can't you see it's you I need


Oh why,

Why can't you still feel me

Why can't you hear my heart anymore?

Let's give us just one more go

You know we've done it before


I don't believe in endings

And I know there's still hope in you

You shut me out, but I don't care

Can't you trust what we had was true?


Isn't it worth it, darling

To mend the empty days

Don't know if I can start again

Don't you feel the same way?


Oh if you try

Can't you still feel me

Can't you hear my heart anymore

Darling, let's give it one more go

You know we've done it before

Can't you, can't you still feel me

Can't you hear my heart anymore

Baby let's give it one more go

You know we've done it before
