Broken Heart Has No Home

It’s fifteen minutes from 4 am as I lay here again
another sleepless night found me
it’s never been my friend
and I woke up with you on my mind
it’s not my intention, I’m not that blind

I know you’ve moved on
and I wish you well
I know you’ve moved on
but there is something I have to tell

It’s always cold in the morning
when I wake up next to you
the ghost of your body
reminds me that it’s true

I know, you know
we gave it all we could
I know, you know
unspoken words, misunderstood
I know, you know
a broken heart has no home

It’s fifteen minutes from 8 am as I sit and stare
the coffee’s brewed, the dog is fed
I still wonder how much you care
and I chase your face from my mind
If I leave you there, I will unwind

I know you’ve moved on
and I wish you well
I know you’ve moved on
but there is something I have to tell

It’s always silent at this table
when I turn to talk to you
the death of your voice
reminds me that it’s true

I know, you know
we gave it all we could
I know, you know
unspoken words, misunderstood
I know, you know
a broken heart has no home

    I could relate to every single word! And for one to wirte such a beautiful piece has to experience it first though.
    Stay strong for a broken heart doesn’t mean the end for beautiful things to happen in your life!
