Ebb's and flows

If the day comes and u can no longer call and you remember how I looked at you. Would you trade it all and go back in time
And actually lived in a world where you were mine
if you had everything that you needed
would you still feel mistreated
by your past and their mistakes
does your heart beat
like it's not about to break
or did a once called loved one
seal your heart into eternally broken place
I don't believe that you deserve that type of fate
the things that I'd do to change
and put a healthy heart back in its place
but I don't believe what they say
that time can heal all wounds
but it's been 3 days and it felt like eternity
an hour past two
the anguish on your face
worn like a scar or tattoo
as the wires hold up your broken mind
let's bring them down
and cut then away this time
they hold you together so
nothing else can help you
but I swear I'll be by there
every fucking time to catch you
and for that little smile
ill always feel better too
ok so glad to have
something in this life
that no one ever had
but as you struggle
i do too
and when you're drownig
I'm dying too
but when we fall
you push me down as you get up
and that proves that love is toxic
wait a minute actually it never truly was
because no way in hell you do that to someone u truly love
