    As night time falls I stand alone
    On the corner of love and lonely
    I search for you within these streets
    But even the birds have disowned me

    The dimness of the street lights
    Represent harmed faith
    I can almost feel the emptiness
    On my shoulders like a weight

    But I'm not here for pleasure
    I come here on a mission
    To search for pieces of your heart
    I'll find them and I'll fix them

    Around me I see rubble
    From broken hearts before
    With every step I take
    I stumble on some more

    And marked out in the pavement
    Are stories of the broken
    Each one I read is based on love
    My memories are awoken

    So I pick up all the pieces
    From the debret at my feet
    Then take the special pieces back
    And settle on a seat

    It's out of love that I work hard
    And the pieces fit together
    I push and pull, make sure it's strong
    To last in testing weather

    I carve my name upon it
    Then place it in your chest
    It's stronger than before
    It could face any test

    Now you can face the world
    With more strength than before
    Face it with new courage
    Stemming from a brand new core
