Broken Romantics Unite

from by Emma Dean




just keep on moving
one foot then the other
shuffle to the door
my somerset st dancer
he might never know
the beautiful mess
that's between your ears
the somerset st best

broken romantics unite
and howl for the lost love
we send to the sky
now it's in the dark
that we store our light
if but a spark
it could save a life...
just keep on singing
one note than another
i do not care
what they sound like with each other
breathe in the aloneness
breathe in all the space
and know, know that i love you
my somerset st nutcase


i have been patient
i have been kind
i have been everything you like
i have been here
i have been there
i have been god damn everywhere
i have been love i have been love etc...
we are the broken, broken romantics
our heart is shattered but we’ll keep on standing
we are not perfect
a little bit cracked
but we’ll keep on loving
and never look back
