I never thought to fall in love,
No romantic notions I held.
My heart was closed, all boarded up,
and I wasn't letting anyone in.
But somehow you made it without trying.
Your smile, your laugh, your voice, your eyes;
All of the things about you,
They all carved their way in.
Logic told me to fight it, this could not end well;
But anyway I surrendered,
scared but full of hope.
You could have had all of my heart,
and I'd have your back as I held your hand.
But dreams are not for waking,
my fear won out and hope is gone.
No answers, no remorse, no goodbye.
Just dropped and forgotten,
Like somebody's garbage.
You had my heart.
Heartbreak is giving someone the greatest gift you can give,
and watching them throw it in the trash as they walk out the door.
