Waiting for my Heart to Break

I know we are not as close as we used to be
every condescending remark we threw at each other
will come back to haunt us eventually
Rain begins to fall, swirling in the winds of change
as we begin to become obscure in each other eyes
it’s the disease I have been acquainted with so many times

This is all that I can take
waiting for my heart to break
It burns deep inside
Our shallow pride
All I can forsake
while waiting for my heart to break

Silence befalls us, I wonder if we’ll ever speak again
locked in our separate ivory towers, I am becoming tired
what happened to us?
Rain begins to cascade, I am still waiting for the change
even though we have faced our own adversity
I never realised how different we are...

This is all that I can take
waiting for my heart to break
It burns deep inside
Our shallow pride
All I can forsake
while waiting for my heart to break

I am impatient, it’s just who I am
Maybe you are not as devoted as me
Least we formed a legacy
for the ages to behold

This is all that I can take
waiting for my heart to break
It burns deep inside
Our shallow pride
All I can forsake
while waiting for my heart to break
while waiting for your heart to break

The End
