Hearts to Stone

from by Tim Be Told

/

lyrics

We are born with a gentle heart
But it doesn't stay for long
When a man is torn he tears the world apart
Just to prove that he is strong

We keep our sadness, keep it deep inside
But it leaves a scar in the end
And souls are shattered when battered hearts collide
Afraid to break again

Chorus
So we use words like knives
And cold shoulders like daggers
Piercing through our flesh and bone
Turning fragile hearts to stone

With every vicious word, every kick and blow
Another piece of us will die
And these voices follow no matter where we go
Slowly eating us alive

So much sadness so much pain we hide
Guarding bitter thoughts til the end
And souls are shattered when battered hearts collide
Afraid to break again

And every sadness buried deep inside
Maybe time will heal in the end
And maybe someone will break through these lines
And help us feel again
