Someone

This hunger for a true love inundates me
I'm slowly submerging in my lack of faith
and I don't know how much time I have before I drown
Who shall save me when I sink?
I can't learn how to swim by myself

These feelings I've been kept drop me down
I'm sliding downwards into my decrepit hopes
and I don't know if I can lift myself out from there
Who shall catch me when I fall?
I can't learn how to fly by myself

This incertain waiting for someone burns me
I'm quite being consumed by my missing heart
and I don't know if I shall stand another breakdown
Who shall rescue me from the fire?
I can't learn how to do it by myself

I need someone to find me in my distant hideaway
and relive me
to join my pieces all over the ground and reconstruct me
to heal my scars from a long time wound and cure me
to touch my soul the way I need to feel and make me love again
