Oh why can't I be what you need?
A newer improved version of me
But I'm nothing so good
No, I'm nothing
Just bones, a lonely ghost burning down songs
Of violence of love and of sorrow
I beg for just one more tomorrow
Where you hold me down, fold me in
Deep, deep, deep in the heart of your sins

I break in two over you, oh
I break in two
And each piece of me dies
And only you can give the breath of life
But you don't see me, you don't

Here I'm pinned between darkness and light
Bleached and blinded by these nights
Where I'm tossing and tortured 'til dawn
By you, visions of you then you're gone.
The shock bleeds the red from my face
When I hear someone's taking my place.
How could love be so thoughtless, so cruel?
When all, all that I did was for you

I break in two over you, oh
I break in two
And each piece of me dies
And only you can give the breath of life
But you don't see me, you don't
(x2)


I break in two over you, oh
I break in two over you, over you
I break in two
I would break in two for you
Now you see me
Now you don't
Now you need me
Now you don't

    Just so you know there is a missing verse and the "guy" really doesn't care about the girl if you find the actual lyrics and original song.

    its how i feel over someone that i still (after not seeing in over a year, and being broken up from for around a year and a half) love. yet he left me for another and she is now gone, he talks to me still about his problems (im the mother of his only child, that looks exactly like him) and if the only way i can have him in my life is as his friend, thats fine. and at times i know he sees me (even being over 600 miles away) but mostly i know he doesnt. 14311.
