Thousands of Pieces

This was mine


I loved this

I loved him

Now he is gone




Your name is written on my heart


If you loved me

You would not do this

You would not

You would never have hurt me

Not on purpose


It’s all my fucking fault


I am the liar

I am the cheat

I am the one who breaks the dreams



I am black

You are white


Now I am coal

You are a shining diamond

You are a sparkling clean shining diamond

And I am filthy coal

Dirty filthy coal

I am the earth

You are the sky

You are up there

And I am down here

You are the one with the knife

You are the cutter


And now it is me who is bleeding
