Reminder (van der Veen Astrid)

the expectations for a true smile must be left alone whether it's going up or going down must be proved by showing not a remedy no more shall it be a heart that's lacking its purpose you can never love and a heart that is not reliable you can never trust not a flee no more shall it be are you alive are you alive tell me how it feels cause I want to know can you bear the light can you bear the light tell me how you've missed the undertow blindly repeating the weaknesses though I believe its strength I would blame it all on emptiness oh tell me how can you break a broken heart are you alive are you alive tell me is life the remedy but how can you depend how can you depend on anything else but the end life is only the reminder of the place that I call home your brain is only the reminder of the things that I have known like the mirror only shows me what became of me everything became a reminder of what used to be
