A Broken Kid to Scream Out for Something

Another stolen lie,

Another painful passer-by

You knew you could get away

But who knew you could ever say

"I'm not a liar; I never stole your fire

You've got it all wrong, so let’s just get along

And let me stay a passer-by,

I just escaped with another heart-lie."


It’s been a few confusing hours,

and with will power,

I’ve got to say okay

And become again, on my way myself


Because you said you would again come hither to me,

But, fires been upfront this time - a lie

Again, again, again! I've got it all wrong, to have wanted to have gone to write a love song

But here me now, I do say

I would want you, again and again


But you say

"I'm not a liar; I never stole your fire

You've got it all wrong, so let’s just get along

And let me stay a passer-by,

I just escaped with another heart-lie."


I've got a heart-lie for you passer-by,

I love you so don't leave me

Let’s share a kiss, before we miss

The times of our lives


Because you say you were always there,

I want to make sure you really care

I want to know that you're not just another romantic face I've wanted


"You’re not a liar, you never stole my fire

I've got it all wrong, so let’s just get along

And let none of us stay a passer-by,


I lied; you never just escaped with another heart-lie. You were always mine"

As much as I love to say I’ve got the love I’ll always love the most,

I can't, it’s just another white lie


So to us, a vain toast

      Love gone awry with the simplest lie. Soulful and sad... Almost empty inside. But then hope arise. Nicely penned.

      Both pain and hope come together in this beautiful piece of work.
