When the fire that holds you chills your bones,
When your vision fades to grayish tones,
That's when you know.
When your insides burn and start to sting,
And at the same time you can't feel a thing,
The symptoms show.
When you feel like all your life's been drained,
And your open heart has been deveined,
You surely have one.
When your swollen eyes hold no more tears,
When your sleepless nights turn into years,
The damage is done.
When your face forgets just how to smile,
And every small step feels like a mile,
You are falling apart.
When once bright eyes lose their gentle glow,
When your own face becomes one you do not know,
You have a broken heart.
