I wish we didn't have hearts
And if we did
Maybe we could cut out the parts
That were broken

I am not some super hero
Some mindless robot
I am a little above zero
One-half maybe

If love is my backdrop
Then my wall is shaky
I do not care to stop
And lean on one brick

I cannot fly or leap
You are an obstacle
That is too steep
You are unapproachable

So in the darkness
I am left to face
My fears at best
Are caused by you

Who wrote that sad line
"Love conquers all"?
He is an enemy of mine
A mere sightseer
