my crooked crooked heart


I should never forgive myself
   for what I did to you
I should never forget
   what I put you through
I should never forget how I pulled
   your world apart
I should never forget I got
   a crooked crooked heart

What always happens
When the lovin ends?
Somebody loses
But nobody
Ever wins

Been on both sides
Of that barbed and
Jagged fence
I got and I gave
Misery intense

I bled and
I bludgeoned
Just for a kiss
That’s all I got left
In love’s reminisce
