A heart is said to be “broken” at the death of a loved one.
How do you “fix” a heart that’s been broken?
How do you calm an anguish soul?
How do you wipe out the misery in this world?
Is there any way out?
Not every kid gets a loving family,
Not every soul rests in peace,
Not every heart is filled with joy,
Not every person has it easy.
So, what do you do, when all you can see is anguish?
When all around you is filled with grief,
When you look around, and you see families falling apart,
Doesn’t that make you sad?
I see heartbreak, can’t I glue it back?
Or is it beyond repair, what can I do to not make you sad?
They say “Be positive”, but how? There’s darkness everywhere I see.
All the beautiful flowers that wither away….Can I do anything to make them stay?
Because not everybody gets luxuries,
Not everybody has a place called “home”.
Not everybody knows what it’s like to “live”,
And not everybody knows the way.
And all I want to know is- Can you fix a broken heart?
I see pain, can I do anything to cover it up with a soft layer of love? A bit of hugs?
It’s not the death that tears me up, it’s the grief, the pain that fills the air in the aftermath.
I look around, and all I see is grief.
How can you dance in the rain, knowing it’s the cause of the flood in someone’s eyes?
How can you be positive in a situation you know is painful to some,
And it’s not the death that breaks me up, it’s the heartbreak and pain.
Not every child can see the world,
Not every heart can see the true you,
Not every “different” being gets loved,
They are all on their own.
And in the end, all I want to know is, Can you fix a broken heart?
Can you heal a torment?
Can you mend agony?
Can you wipe out all afflictions?
Can you make a fresh start?
Can you handle it while all’s falling apart?
Can you “fix” a broken heart?
