The Pathetic Ruin

I should have known right from the start
That some day we'd be apart
It was just your unforgiving heart
Your unforgiving heart,

You know I was never that smart
When it came to affairs of the heart
I was foolish enough to believe in what I heard
Emotions that preyed upon my heart like a scavenger bird,

I remember driving all night in the rain
Just trying to outdistance all the pain
Like a child betrayed about to go insane
Like the blood pumping through my veins,

Like an engineer on a hellbound train
What did I ever have to gain?
Like a head on crash in the opposite lane
Forgive me for these words I cannot contain,

It seems in this world love comes to those who leave
To them heartbreak is just a minor pet peeve
Thinking about all the lies I actually believed
Sadder now than I could ever have concieved,

If God is supposed to heal all wounds
I couldn't have prayed enough or prayed too soon
I begged and begged and begged like some buffoon
My life is nothing more than a pathetic ruin,

I should have known right from the start
That Some day we'd be apart
It was just your unforgiving heart
Your unforgiving heart.
