Listen to my heart break

Can you hear the pieces fall

It lies completely shattered

And there’s nothing left at all


There’s a piece once called love

And next to it lies trust

Joined by faith and devotion

Now turning into dust


It’s sad that love such as ours

Now ends in such a way

And can never see tomorrow

Through the pain it wears today


Echoes of love once shared

Are whispering in my head

Reminding me of vows we made

The day that we were wed


Fingertips of memory

Are more than I can bear

As they serve to remind me

Of the heartache I now wear


It’s the end of something beautiful

Built upon for years

And bonding is prevented

By the moisture of my tears

Did I misunderstand?



I thought you said you loved her.

Did I misunderstand?

You’ve made a foolish mockery

Of her small golden band.


She believed in all your promises

When you took vows for life,

But all you did was lie and cheat

On your trusting faithful wife.
