Broken Dreams

VERSE 1
Don't love me if you're not gonna love me
Don't hold me when your arms want her
Don't kiss me when it's her lips you're tasting
Don't lie to me and hurt me more
Don't whisper words of a love untrue
Don't make me fall even harder
Don't touch my heart with gentle hands
When tomorrow you'll just forget me

CHORUS
I used to believe you when you said you loved me
I used to know your heart was mine
But now I think I'm just a template
A substitute for a lover gone
I used to know you wanted me
I used to feel safe when you held me
But now I know I'm just a shell
Of shattered glass and broken dreams

VERSE 2
A golden goddess, tall and pure
Emitting a light angelic and serene
The only one you'll be content to love
The only angel you'll live for
Why did you touch me with such gentle tenderness
Why did your words flow with such ardor
Why did you love me, just to make me happy
When your smile was all I ever craved

CHORUS
I used to believe you when you said you loved me
I used to know your heart was mine
But now I think I'm just a template
A substitute for a lover gone
I used to know you wanted me
I used to feel safe when you held me
But now I know I'm just a shell
Of shattered glass and broken dreams

BRIDGE
Smile, dear heart, even when my heart is breaking
Live your last with laughter on your lips
Think of me, even when your time is fading
My heart will follow
Forgotten and lost
Until my soul comes to claim it

VERSE 3
Abandoned by a truth you yourself could never speak
Scorched by an agony of an unrequited love
I never thought I quite deserved To die a death so hurtful
I never thought I'd be held back by the one who claimed to care
Don't love me if you're not gonna love me
Don't whisper words you'll never mean
Don't hold me close and push me away
Don't play with me
Say what you mean
Confess your need
Even if it isn't me

CHORUS
I used to believe you when you said you loved me
I used to know your heart was mine
But now I think I'm just a template
A substitute for a lover gone
I used to know you wanted me
I used to feel safe when you held me
But now I know I'm just a shell
Of shattered glass and broken dreams

I'll see you on the other side
Of my shattered heart and broken dreams
