Long Time

Long Time

A Poem by thegirlthatwrites

Verse 1:

Oh, it’s been a long, long time

Since I have felt warm to the core

And it’s been a long, long time

Since I first walked through your door

Now don’t think this is some pretty song

About letting you in

If I did you’d suffer more pain

Than you can imagine

Chorus:

I’ve got the scars on my hips

Shadows of sweet on my lips

To prove to you I am human

Would you like to see all the bruises

On my porcelain skin?

My ribs, they will break

My heart, it will stay

Safe away

From you

Verse 2:

I don’t think you are aware

Of how lucky you are to bear

Your heart on your sleeve

As you do

So carefree, yet careful

You’re strong as an ox

But I will break you into bits

My fire inside

Will swallow you alive

And I don’t think you can handle it

Chorus:

I’ve got the scars on my hips

Shadows of sweet on my lips

To prove to you I am human

Would you like to see all the bruises

On my porcelain skin?

My ribs, they will break

My heart, it will stay

Safe away

From you

 

Bridge

People say I’ve been broken

I’ll tell you again

I just don’t think you can take it

The warmth in your eyes

Will kill me in time

Baby, help me, I’m caving in

 

Chorus:

I’ve got the scars on my hips

Shadows of sweet on my lips

To prove to you I am human

Would you like to see all the bruises

On my porcelain skin?

My ribs, they will break

My heart, it will stay

Safe away

From you

 

Oh, it’s been a long, long time

Since I’ve felt warm to the core

And it’s been a long, long time

Since I’ve let someone through

This door
