Can the world stop turning just for me?
Can they all stop breathing for a moment?
Can I listen to the sound of my dilapidated soul
And find something just a tad kindred?
Have you ever believed in miracles?
Have you ever experienced pain?
Truth be told, I’ll be titled a liar
If I said I knew how much it actually ached.
According to the grapevine, you need heartbreak
To really feel your heart break.
And here I am, lying to myself and everybody else,
Being labelled a deceitful hypocrite.
So, can the laws of nature be defied for once?
Can I find some solace in seclusion?
Can I let corporeal pain overpower the intangible
And revive an ingenuous cadaver?
