What happens to a man when
He spills his heart on a page and
He watches words flow away then
His feelings lie on the page alone
There waiting
For someone who cares to read them
To open their eyes to see them
To see if they can make his thoughts their own
To find out that maybe your life's not perfect
Maybe it's not worth what he gives away

You can see that this broken soul is bleeding
So you can see your feelings inside yourself
And wander through my heart
Letting you see through me
Now only consumes me
Forget your pain, watch me fall apart

What happens to a soul when
It's trapped inside his emotions
And all of these words he's spoken
They bind him to the life he's left behind
And every new step he takes
He knows that he might not make it
To all of these dreams that he has yet to find
Maybe your life's not perfect
But maybe it's not worth what he gives away

You can see that this broken soul is bleeding
So you can see your feelings inside yourself
And wander through my heart
Letting you see through me
Now only consumes me
Forget your pain and watch me fall apart

As I fall apart

You can see that this broken soul is bleeding
So you can see your feelings inside yourself
And wander through my heart
Letting you see through me
Now only consumes me
Forget your pain and watch me fall apart

As I fall apart

    This is a song written by and for writers. The song captures perfectly what it means and how it feels to be a writer. That in order to capture the audience, we literally have to open up our scars every single time. That we have to bring out this broken soul we all carry around with us rather than let it heal like a lot of other people.

    Why do writers do this? To create authenticity, to put material on a page we know that we know the audience will relate to and in the end tell them that they're not alone by exposing everything within us.

    To me it symbolizes my life. Everywhere i go, i see someone like this, young and old. For me, it's a rather personal note. I've been kicked around and abused for years and years. Now there's something i can level with...
