BrokenHas the world finally beaten us?Broken by ferdicamacho
I never wanted to be one of the normal people
I never thought I'd let myself be corrupted
But now look at me - I don't even feel I have the right to fight it anymore
It's all gone and done for
When all is said there'll be nothing left of who we were, will there?
I fear we'll give up believing we could be more than this
More than working bees part of a beehive
Just minlessly going about money-making routines
More than sorry asses moping about a great love lost because of normal people's mistakes
More than regretfull souls keeping our dreams and hopes in a drawer
Has the world finally beaten us?
I don't want to believe it.
I don't want us to become strangers
Painfully exchanging business related words
I need to see you and see that there is still some warmth left, some life and hunger for a great future still present inside us
As I lay here heartbroken, hardened, numb and vulnerable all at once
I want to find the friend I have in you

The toughest blowLowered to the depths of hellThe toughest blow by ferdicamacho
but, love, do not despair
I still wish you well
Though stay with you now I do not dare
All I wanted was for us to finally overcome our past
Forget the bad things, stop making mistakes
Don't dither, we'll figure these deep aches
Or is this gonna be a battle to everlast?
Whenever we would fight
I'd remember that that wasn't really the end
Cause we were deeply linked and, try as we might,
We couldn't, despite the pain, let go and not mend
Now I've been feeling sick to the core
Just glancing at that picture of us
That sweet and pure thing seems of old lore
And I can't forgive myself for my fault, and thus...
Love, we were selfish not to see
The other one could laugh while apart
And that wouldn't mean we wanted to be "free"
But we took each other's joy and left instead a bad mark
Why do we do this?
Do we not want the other one to be happy?
We should stop poisoning our memories
And understand that there is a us, a you and a me
