Writing My Heart Out

W

So I woke up this morning
Tired as always
Same old regrets in my mind
Same old sorrows in my heart
Headaches, nightmares, give me a break
All this pressure is just too hard to take

For once I wanted to hope
Hope the day would turn out differently
Hope the pain wouldn’t ruin all again
Found myself a reason to get up
Sat at my desk, gathered my thoughts
Out of my brain and into paper 

This morning instead of mourning
I’ll write my heart out
To make sure I’m still living
I’m writing my heart out
As long as I am breathing
I’ll write my heart out
To find reason and meaning
I’m writing my heart out

So it happened again tonight
Never felt this happy in a while
Surrounded by love — oh I felt seen
Am I not worthless after all?
Oh, I wish it could last forever
But I know I’ll sabotage it all again

Party’s over, and two seconds later
The Devil’s back on my back
‘You don’t deserve this’, he whispers
But not today, Satan, not today
I will remember this feeling
I will not let myself forget

Tonight instead of hurting
I’ll write my heart out
To remember I am loved
I’m writing my heart out
Not to think about dying
I’ll write my heart out
Tonight to ease the pain
I’m writing my heart out

Shit, here we go again
Fool, you let yourself love again
You happy now? Fell for the wrong guy
— I mean, he’s perfect, you’re the one who’s bad
Hey, big surprise, he doesn’t love you back
Guess they never fall for the lonely damaged guy

Look at yourself, in tears again
As if you could afford crying
Over someone else
Don’t love others until you love yourself
Stop crying now and do what’s best for you
Save your tears and let your love come through

Today instead of crying
I’ll write my heart out
To contain my feelings
I’m writing my heart out
Pouring my love into paper
I’ll write my heart out
Not to feel hopeless
I’m writing my heart out

So I’ll write my heart out
I’m writing my heart out
Taking my broken heart, making it into art
I’ll write my heart out
I’m writing my heart out
Lyrics and poetry so I don’t go crazy
I’ll write my heart out
I’m writing my heart out
In the middle of the night so I can go to sleep
I’ll write my heart out
I’m writing my heart out
Before the day breaks and before my heart breaks
I’ll write my heart out
I’m writing my heart out

This time I won’t let it control me
