Never Been Broken

It’s been too long & I could use somebody, someone like you.
At 3 in the morning to tell me that everything will be okay.
After sunrise I’m too busy living it up to notice all of the holes in my armor.
Nonchalance isn’t acceptable when it goes on & on until I’ve lost sight of the Sun.
We are young, but I’ve got an old soul that yearns to be about more.
What a way to go, what a way to feel.

This is all so new to me.
Should I give a little more?
Should I ask for more from you?
Maybe I will baby.
I’m gonna love like I’ve never been broken.

The last time I took a chance with my heart I had a beautiful letdown.
You’ll be the one that I remember for all of the wrong reasons.
This will be the last time I pay attention to that buzzing in the background.
In spite of all of these oscillations my heart hasn’t broken free from this aching chest.
I better find something to do with myself, before I do wrong by someone that’s right for me.
I can already tell that you’re far from the usual.
Look at me, now look at you; What’s keeping us apart?
I better find my heart before I take yours & run.

This is all so new to me.
Should I give a little more?
Should I ask for more from you?
Maybe I will baby.
I’m gonna love like I’ve never been broken.
Here’s what I’m gonna do, I’m gonna start again.

I’m bored with doing what I’m told.
No I’m not the man I used to be, you see you met me at an interesting time.
I’m in need of something new, something that leaves me wanting more.
At a crossroad, between what I’ve known & what I’ve never been before.
I’ve never had a love like you before & I don’t quite understand it.
Why should I be afraid of change when it’s attached to your face.
I could break my way into your heart, but I don’t really want to break you to make you want me more.
Who do you love, is it me or the thought of you & me?
It’s hard to shake old ways even in the brightest of days,
and I could never figure out how to make this last forever.
For a second I’ll let you to hold on longer than before.

This is all so new to me.
Should I give a little more?
Should I ask for more from you?
Maybe I will baby.
I’m gonna love like I’ve never been broken.
Here’s what I’m gonna do, I’m gonna start again.
I don’t want another ending before we’ve even begun.

So I’m gonna start again within.
I’ll blindly follow my heart, you can take everything I have.
And I’ll finally find something worth believing in.
See I’m a believer in people not rules, so gravity stay the hell away from me.
Sure it’s late, I know, but it’s never too late for a change of heart.
I’m expecting more from this beating in my chest.
