Chained Heart

The truth is I wanted you from day one,
But my heart was chained and on the run
When it came down to love. Because who
Would love me as I can never have you?

I would have jumped over the fence and
Straight into your arms as you will stand
There waiting for me, but I was too afraid
To take the big jump. In my soul I prayed

For someone like you, but my heart has
Been played for far too long to know topaz
Or gold. My heart could never appreciate
Real love. He broke my love. I would hate

Him for that, but I realized you were never
Going to be like him. You were really clever
Enough to realize I have been down this
Road and I want love that will never fizz,

Fade or die in the middle of summer or
Winter. The truth is I can no longer ignore
My heart that has always been chained
And betrayed. I want it to be unstained

And tell the truth it yearns to speak about.
My heart is wanting, without any doubt,
To fly free among the soaring airplanes
And birds. It wants to feel the sun and rain

In its spidery veins. My heart always fills
The space or void with sounds. It still will
Carry a heartbeat for those who are weak
And broken. It aches to talk and speak

From beyond its chained fence. It just
Needs a helping hand that will hold trust
Easily like you easily held me when things
Were falling apart and love does not sting.
