Keeping me captive, keeping me weak
I'm drowning in this emotion they call regret;
I'm only one soul, one heart
I beg to you.....Mercy;
Was your grasp so tight, so true
that even the heavens won't let me let you go?
I've lost myself in transition
become my own jigsaw puzzle piece;
Why does your memory haunt me
encompassing my every thought, my dreams?
I sit here, emotionally naked before you
I'm pleading for my heart, convicted by the past;
Your jury finds me guilty...guilty of what?
I'll live out this sentence in my own purgatory;
Life now fails in comparison
Left to scrape the remains of what once was;
One last prayer, will he hear my cries?
Release me from this cage of self destruction;
Where is the light that once shined upon me
to guide me to my place, to my path;
Take these crumpled pieces of what was me
Make me whole again, bring me back from the damned.
Here I'll wait, hanging from this ledge
holding my breathe
Where is the heart I once knew?
