"Broken Man"

I'm a broken man
Afraid to let anyone in
Believing only in pain
Because it feels so real
I want a miracle to happen
But miracles can't happen if you don't believe
I've lost all hope
I'm alone

Want for someone to hold me tight
Love me for who I am
A broken man
Without a reason to keep fighting sometimes
I've changed
Pain made me someone else
I want desperately to change
But it might be too late

Emotional torture
When I see someone happy
Jealousy kicks in
Making me wish for that other life
But I am a broken man
Nothing will change
Because I cannot find hope anymore
Why should I bother trying
When pain surrounds me
Making it hard to breathe
Making me shake
Making me want to close my eyes
And wishing that I could just disappear

My life is passing through my fingers
And I cannot stop it
This misery
Made me build a wall around me
And as time went on, on and on
I closed myself in
Not letting anyone in
I'm afraid if I will let any more pain
I might break down
Fall down in silence
Even though I don't believe
I would pray for someone to end this
Release me

I cannot be saved
If I don't let anyone in
But the pain works like a barrier
Cutting me deep
Until I stop feeling
I can't remember how happiness feels anymore
I don't want pain, no more, no more, no more!

I'm a broken man
Afraid to let anyone in
Believing only in pain
Because it feels so real
I want a miracle to happen
But miracles can't happen if you don't believe
I've lost all hope
I'm alone 

The End
