This Broken Heart

They say that falling in love is an art
But yet, to be unbroken and whole again
Oh! If I could repair this broken heart.

Flowers bloom, grow tall in my heart,
flowering beauty, yet they cause me pain 
Oh! If I could repair this broken heart.

They will not leave me, they've yet to start
They hurt me, flowers wild, trapped, complain
They say that falling in love is an art.

How is it, that one person can pull apart
My mind, my heart, drive me quite insane
Oh! If I could repair this broken heart.

How I wish every day you’d depart 
From living in my mind, living in my brain
They say that falling in love is an art.

Is this like death, to have everything torn apart?
I feel myself drifting away, I cannot remain,
They say that falling in love is an art
Oh! If I could repair this broken heart
