When new beginnings falter
And hope has slipped away
You close your eyes to fight the tears
From the hurt that's there to stay

When the seams of your heart are swollen
And pain yearns to be expressed
You know you can't kill the feeling
So you dwell in its caress

When your scars are like your souvenirs
The past insist to remain
Don't know how to fight the evil
To be strong and press on again

When emotions become entangled
You're lost in blinding light
You succumb to the mere possibility
That what you wish for... just might...

When worlds seem to collide
And in the heat you miss your turn
You fall back to reality
Where your heart's left to burn
