Heartgaps

Written by Dean Palya Jr, BMI

Heartgaps

She said she loved me, that’s why we should take it slow
My heart on fire buried underneath the snow
It was simple things
Like how she woke up when the sun came up, and stretched out all her toes

By now she’s halfway around the world I suppose
I hope shes careful on those god damn icy roads
It was the little things
Like how I kept her bottles in the shower, if ever she comes home

I was living in make believe
Break my heart quickly please
If there’s any light, if there’s anything like
What we had, baby come back

I said I loved her, and that she should do what’s best
My tears they choked me and they took away my breath
I won’t forget
How she looked back in her side view mirror before she finally left

And then I put back all the pieces to my heart
I wish she’d sent me back all the little parts
To close the gaps
I couldn’t figure this out on my own, without her clever hands

I was living in make believe
Break my heart quickly please
If there’s any light, if there’s anything like
What we had, baby come back

It’d been some seasons since I tossed the photographs
I was doing fine though my heart still has the cracks
It was dark inside
Until that day you passed me on the street and looked into my eyes

I swear I saw beginning, middle, and the end
And for the first time, the light came from within
And suddenly
I was thankful for the cracks she left, so I could share the light I had

With you

I'll share the light I have with you
