Bite Of My Broken Heart

How can I shake off this fascination?
You feed nothing but my procrastination
Surrounded by everyone but no one is near me
If I dream out loud will somebody hear me?

I sneak into your bed but you’re already sleeping
I am an astronaut orbiting you
Float me the answers and fold them on your pillow
Whisper the secret to undo the sorrow

Can I offer you a bite of my broken heart?
Swallow it slowly with wine darling, that’s a start
Walk with me into the dark, my love I don’t mind
Can I offer you a bite of my broken heart, broken heart

Am I the only one in this confusion
Singing silent melodies oh tacit collusion
Come to me in my sleep and steal me from waking
For when I’m alone I feel this bitter Earth quaking

Can I offer you a bite of my broken heart?
Swallow is slowly with wine darling, that’s a start
Walk with me into the dark, my love I don’t mind
Can I offer you a bite of my broken heart, broken heart

In the questions you seek, is there already an answer?
When you reach the highest peak is it just as fun to throw yourself off,
You’re a snowball, rolling rolling rolling
And you can start all over
And you can start all over again

Can I offer you a bite of my broken heart?
Swallow is slowly with wine darling, that’s a start
Walk with me into the dark, my love I don’t mind
Can I offer you a bite of my broken heart, broken heart

Can I offer you a bite of my broken heart?
Swallow it slowly with wine darling, that’s a start
Walk with me into the dark, my love I don’t mind
Can I offer you a bite of my broken heart
broken heart
Broken heart broken heart
