It's about that difficult final decision about the love that will never be.


Give My Heart Back

My heart no longer lingers on a string, nor around a finger or platter of things
Nor on a sleeve of a shirt I once wore, nor on the horse I saddled for chivalry, for sure
It does not beat hither for I am aware, joyful nights abundant in love are rare
Darkness has swallowed in hallowed despair, the vacant position you left in my care
Thus I call with open arms to you, return my poor heart, for I have few
And leave my dreams from which I long, to escape the seduction of your prong
I lay down my sword that melts to glance, for with you I decide to forfeit my chance
One must realize to first be in the game, thou must first learn of my name.

"Darkness has swallowed in hallowed despair, the vacant position you left in my care"
