This Is Now My Heart


This is now my heart, In a world that’s torn apart.

I keep searching for a spark I keep searching.

What you left for me is but a hollowed memory

Filled with love’s debris I keep searching.


What is this pain I seem to hold. My angry bear it took control.

Those lonely nights my heart it froze.

I got nowhere that I can go.


Could you take me back again. Or dust me off and just be friends.

How does this lover’s quarrel end.

Is this where you leave


A painted storm inside my head. My favorite color, always red.

The loop it plays those words I said. I think I’ll put the bear to bed.
