Breaking Hearts

by Shawn Allen

Sometimes I think too much
About all the wrong things.
Some days I sleep too much
When I should be singing.
Sometimes I give too much
Say too much
Feel too much
See to much
And I’m setting myself up
For the big fall,
The big fall.

And I’ve come this far already,
Can I go all the way?
Can I give you everything in me
When I know what will happen, already?
If I tear out my beating heart
And hand it to you
You’ll only give it back
Missing a piece,
Breaking my own heart.
Is it worth it, in the end?
I believe,
I believe it is.

Sometimes I want too much
Of all the wrong things…
