If Heartache Was Visible

 

Verse One
I wish someone would hold me
Tell me it will be all right
But it doesn’t matter
It would just be lies

Verse Two
There’s more chance of you caring
Than a night that I won’t cry
Of all the things you’ve stolen
The worst of these is time

Bridge
It’s like trying to get there 
Burdened by a heavy weight
I tell everyone I’m healing
But the wound still feels the same
Years down the line, tell me, will I feel this way?
Mother Mary, help me if I take this to the grave

Chorus
Nothing but guilt would watch over you tonight
If heartache was visible on the outside
Somebody would help me; someone would save my life
If heartache was visible on the outside

Verse Three
You’d always take a handout
And then punch me in the face
Time is no great healer
Not when the memories ache

Verse Four
I don’t get how you’ve blocked me
I see no barricades
No one thinks you’ve stopped me
But they don’t feel the strain

Bridge
It’s like trying to get there 
Burdened by a heavy weight
I tell everyone I’m healing
But the wound still feels the same
Years down the line, tell me, will I feel this way?
Mother Mary, help me if I take this to the grave

Chorus
Nothing but guilt would watch over you tonight
If heartache was visible on the outside
Somebody would help me; someone would save my life
If heartache was visible on the outside

Climax
I didn’t have sharp edges
Till you broke me into pieces
If you’re really bleeding
It’s not a big surprise

I didn’t have sharp edges
Till you crushed me into pieces
Any sting you’re feeling
Is a fraction of my pain

Chorus
Nothing but guilt would watch over you tonight
If heartache was visible on the outside
Somebody would help me; someone would save my life
If heartache was visible on the outside

Chorus
Nothing but guilt would watch over you tonight
If heartache was visible on the outside
Somebody would help me; someone would save my life
If heartache was visible on the outside
