I’ve got a heart that beats

But it’s making a mess

A red pool growing bigger in time

It’s the beat of our song

 

That love pours forth

Red drips on the page

Our story forever alive

Part of our hearts and in the books

 

You patch me up

I wait to heal

Your love is a band-aid

A mere temporary seal

 

Love stabs, love wounds

But the blood keeps pumping

Through my body and through that hole

Yet I’m still alive

 

These words make scabs

Flesh covering flesh again

To keep myself whole

Where a scar remains

 

Love scars, never gone

For once united, always a part

A dead X marks the spot

Of a buried seed, growing inward

 

You patch me up

I wait to heal

Your love is a band-aid

A mere temporary seal

 

Love stabs, love wounds

But the blood keeps pumping

Through my body and through that hole

Yet I’m still alive

 

Cage behind heartstrings

Our love stays captive

Two hearts together

Separated in new reality

 

Arms outstretched we see

A new embrace outside

That hugs the free

And the chamber stays deep

 

You patch me up

I wait to heal

Your love is a band-aid

A mere temporary seal

 

Love stabs, love wounds

But the blood keeps pumping

Through my body and through that hole

Yet I’m still alive
