Music Videos: "Broken Reverie" by Homebound



You tore me apart and ripped out every seam.
Have a taste of your own medicine then tell me how you’ve been.
A bitter pill to swallow, It builds up to break you down,
Til your misery is crippling and drags you to the ground.

It was exciting and new, completely out of the blue.
Not long before I was a stranger to you.
I let you in my head. So you can recite,
What I never said when I had to bite
The tip of my tongue, take a deep breath.
Had to grit my teeth till my mouth bled.
I had to tread ever so light around the corners of your mind.

I'm another example of what you couldn't handle.

The impression I convinced myself I had of you and I,
As clear as day, as right as rain.
But I was caught in a lie, an illusion.
I'm riddled with delusion.
So deceitful on my eyes,
A mirage playing with my mind.

Everything I said, everything I did,
Nothing seemed to work, nothing did the trick.
‘Cause you got everything that you needed.
Now you're left feeling guilty.
But I'm getting used to this lack of honesty.
Brings a flush of red only I can see.
You left me stranded and neglected with nothing more than I expected.

I was under the impression,

I convinced myself I had of you and I.
As clear as day, as right as rain.
But I was caught in a lie, an illusion.
I'm riddled with delusion.
So deceitful on my eyes,
A mirage playing with my mind.

I should be getting used to this by now,
Still hurts to admit but I'll get over it somehow.
I should be getting used to this by now,
Still hurts to admit but I'm not over it right now.
