A Crystal Heart… A song of loss

A CRYSTAL HEART

There’s a subtlety in her smile

That can brighten the gloomiest of days.

And that sparkle in her eyes

Can chase the blues away.

But did you know

That underneath

There’s heartache and there’s pain?

She hides it well –

Never to tell –

When will it be too late…?

 

Inside she’s crying…

A struggle deep…

The pages of her life are torn.

While her broken heart still beats.

Screaming –no one hears her…

Inside a battle roars…

Be gentle with a crystal heart.

The cracks can hold no more…

 

Another day…

Another smile…

Another putting on the mask.

For those who need her for awhile.

They don’t know and they don’t ask.

Never do they ponder why.

Is it fate or destiny?

That makes her want hide her eyes

Before anyone can see…

 

Inside she’s crying…

A struggle deep…

The pages of her life are torn.

While her broken heart still beats.

Screaming, but no one hears her…

Inside a battle roars…

Be gentle with a crystal heart.

The cracks can hold no more…

 

Too late did we notice.

Lost forevermore.

Signs, we never saw them,

Now we’re saddened to the core.

What would she have us learn from this?

Oh, memories of her smile.

Goodbye now — goodbye kiss…

Goodbye for awhile.

 

Inside she’s crying…

A struggle deep…

The pages of her life are torn.

While her broken heart still beats.

Screaming, but no one hears her…

Inside a battle roars…

Be gentle with a crystal heart.

The cracks can hold no more…

Oh please…

Be gentle with a crystal heart.

The cracks can hold no more…
