The girl with no soul

I am the heart with a hole
The girl with no living soul
So foolish I was, before I got stung by the heartless bug,
So foolish I was, until you stopped being my drug.
You came into my life and with a blink left,
You grabbed a knife and sliced it through my breast.
My heart is now cut into two,
Thanks to a painful wound done by you.

You did not mean to hurt me,
But what did you expect?
You did not mean to hurt me
But I am the only one you affect…

So here we are, just friends,
Old enough to bury the desire with no end.
We both know the way it’s supposed to be,
There is just no place for a ‘you and me’.
After all I’m the heart with a hole
I am the girl with no living soul.
