Hopeless Heart

(1991 / New Zealand)

A Painful Romance


Why does it hurt so much?
Every time we touch,
I don’t understand this
It was just a kiss

My heart feels like it’s caving in
Like it’s being stabbed with a thousand pins,
I don’t care how much it hurts, I need you
I love you and I know you love me too

Why do I feel this way?
I wish I was okay,
It’s not that I don’t love you
Because I do

I don’t know what’s wrong
I wish I was strong,
But it hurts, it hurts so much
Almost as if I was punched

When I’m with you everything’s okay
I wish that’s how it would always stay,
But when you’re gone
It feels so wrong

If it hurts this much when I’m with you
I don’t want to know what if feels without you,
I don’t ever want to let you go
I hope you know and I hope it shows

I never thought I would ever feel this way
Though I always hoped and prayed,
That one day someone like you would come along
And make me feel as if I belonged

I’d rather this pain
Which at most only cuts into my veins
Than the pain when we part
Because that would break my heart.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
