Broken Records

By Ariana    Ariana

I've been working so hard to be so strong
thought all these distractions could right the wrong
I want to be everything for you
Love your soul and what you do

But somehow these scars stay on my heart
somehow I still can't heal
thought I was stronger that this
the pain is too hard to conceal
I wanted to be in total bliss
turns out I'm just a broken record
so easily dismissed

I can't even tell you his favorite song
or what makes him smile
but I think I like that he's been hurting for a while
He's broken like me, but his spirit is free
He's a broken record
let's play a tune
I guess I want to be played by you too
