your face says words that you don’t mean
your eyes went places they’ve never seen
you’ve been lying, it’s been feeling
belief like I have never felt
my heart, my head, my mouth, my chest
they’ve been talking
but they haven’t said your name
your place was dark, I got my own
my heart, my face, needed the sun
and I’m still standing, I’ve been loving
someone who knows how to love back
with a heart that isn’t stained with black
its been pounding, its been feeling someone else

I keep my heartbeats to myself
I could only hear the sounds you made
now my silence finally gone away
I get to feel myself again
my face, my eyes, are to begin
my heart, once closed, is opening

my chest has grown, rest inside
still can’t reach, your leaves look bright (?)
they’ve been dying, I’ve been feeling
belief like I have never felt
my heart, my hair, my mouth, my face
they’ve been talking, they’ve been watching someone else
my place is bright it is my own
my heart, my face, get lots of sun
I’m still standing, I’ve been loving
someone with something you don’t have
I cannot love someone who’s sad
It’s been growing, I’ve been loving someone else

I keep my heartbeats to myself
I could only hear the sounds you made
now my silence finally gone away
I get to feel myself again
my face, my eyes, are to begin
my heart, once closed, is opening

what does it take to give
what do you want? what do you need?
what other promises you can’t keep?
how does it feel to take
what you want, when you fake
you will learn in someone’s face

I keep my heartbeats to myself
I could only hear the sounds you made
now my silence finally gone away
I get to feel myself again
my face, my eyes, are to begin
my heart, once closed, is opening
