"Hearts a mess" as written by Walter Andre De Backer, Irving Burgie and William A Attaway....
Pick apart
The pieces of your heart
And let me peer inside
Let me in
Where only your thoughts have been
Let me occupy your mind
As you do mine

You have lost
Too much love
To fear, doubt and distrust
Its not enough
You just threw away the key
To your heart

You don't get burned
'Cause nothing gets through
It makes it easier
Easier on you
But that much more difficult for me
To make you see

Love ain't fair
So there you are
My love

Your heart's a mess
You won't admit to it
It makes no sense
But I'm desperate to connect
And you, you can't live like this

Your heart's a mess
You won't admit to it
It makes no sense
But I'm desperate to connect
And you, you can't live like this

Your heart's a mess
You won't admit to it
It makes no sense
But I'm desperate to connect
And you can't live like this

Love ain't safe
You won't get hurt if you stay chaste
So you can wait
But I don't wanna waste my love

    General CommentSince this is art, and damn good art at that, this can be about any relationship you care to imagine.

    For example, imagine this is a love song sung by God to the entirety of humanity. I don't care if you are a Christian, atheist, Buddhist, etc. just do it as a thought exercise. Start reading the lyrics and imagine God does exist, and he's just like anyone else in a relationship with another entity that has free will, etc.

    It's beautiful. :)
