Where Is Your Heart?

I wish I could take all your troubles away
I'd bear your burden, steer clear of the gray
Our hearts fell at different rates, they've gone and unhooked
Now it seems far too late for a second look

Where is your hand? Where is your heart?
I wish I had known right from the start
If only I understood why you turn your back when I reminisce
Every shot I get, I inevitably seem to miss

You see through me like a ghost, I can't hurt you anymore
Through my endless pleading, all I'm left with is a heart oh so sore
I left you once, how could I leave you again?
Unstable my heart, jumbled in the head

Dampened down, through and through
Our last moments are up to you
You promised the stars and I lost track of the ground
Sending me deeper with each strum, every sound

Where is your hand? Oh, where is your heart?
I wish I had known right from the start
If only I understood why you turn your back when I reminisce
How do I become something that you would miss?

You see through me like a ghost, I can't hurt you anymore
Through my endless pleading, all I've got left is a heart oh so sore
I left you once, how would I leave you again?
Unstable my heart, you've got me jumbled in my own head


Where is your hand? Where is your heart?
A game of mutual deception has been played since the start.
