The Heart Wasn’t Made For Aching

The heart wasn’t made for aching
The mind is meant to be free
The spirit wasn’t designed for breaking
The eyes are open but cannot see.

The day without hope
The night without cheer
The dawn full of worry
The dusk full of fear

Always feel like your falling
Not flying as you need to be
The mind is like a caged animal
And all it wants is be free

The laughter of others
Rings out like a bell
You want to be part of it
Not in this living hell

The heart wasn’t made for aching
The mind is meant to be free
You look to the heavens for a glimmer
But hope flickers like leaves on a tree

The crowds bring sadness
The people bring tears
The loneliness breeds madness
The pain that no one hears

Time rushes by
Like sand in the wind
There’s no end to the sorrow
The lights have all dimmed

A candle that burned brightly
Is flickering in the night
It not gone out yet
But its given up the fight

The heart wasn’t made for aching
The mind is meant to be free
If there’s still chance of redemption
Then I must be blind for I cannot see.
