I wrote this a couple weeks ago. I had a 5 hour drive ahead of me and this just popped in my head so I wrote it down. It's not finished yet.

Fragile Hearts

Is this how its supposed to be?
I'm sitting all alone
Waiting for my love to find me here
Promised times are broken now
As the clock chimes out
The lights go off and then I realize

Pre-chorus
I think I've just been left behind again
My heart has yet again been drained

Chorus 1
My fragile heart is cracking (from all the holes)
I tried to fill them up with things
But they only seemed to deepen them
My fragile heart is breaking (from all the holes)
And I can not take much more.

Then in this part I will turn it around into a positive so the listeners aren't left with a broken heart. I need to get back to this song. I kinda like it. What do ya think?

Ok I wrote the rest, but i'm sure it will change a few more times. When we go to put it into a song I'm sure words or lines will be cut/added. Here it is.
Fragile Hearts

Verse 1
Is this how its supposed to be?
I'm sitting all alone
Waiting for my love to find me here
Promised times are broken now
As the clock chimes out
The lights go off and then I realize

Pre-chorus
I think I've just been left behind again
My heart has yet again been drained

Chorus 1
My fragile heart is cracking (from all the holes)
I tried to fill them up with things
But they only seemed to deepen them
My fragile heart is breaking (from all the holes)
And I can not take much more.

Verse 2
Depression grabs a hold of me
As I search for a way out
Confiding in my .45
I'm falling off the edge

Bridge
Only God can save me from my
self I am so Broken
I'm calling upward
Wonder if I'm heard
Then I feel at peace
He says, "Child, Welcome home!"

Chorus 2
My fragile heart is healing (from all the holes)
He's filled them up with love
that I have never had before
My fragile heart is healing (from all the holes)
But this pain I hold inside
I can't let go, I must let go

Coda
It feels so heavy
so suffocating
Please take this from me!
I give it all, I give it all
He'll take it all, He'll take it all
He took it all!

Musical break (solo perhaps)

Pre Chorus
I won't be left behind again.
This is where my life begins.

Chorus 3
My fragile heart is healing (from all the holes)
He's filled them up with love
that I have never had before
My fragile heart is healing (from all the holes)
And this pain I held inside
I let it go.
END

There it is. I am probably going to make some more changes. I don't know if I like the part about the .45. But my songs always seems to go from dark to light. Anyway, I don't think its too bad for just being thrown together. I think it sounds a little cheesy and cliche in parts, but refinement will come when it gets put to music. The I'll probably say, "yikes! this sucks." and throw it in my drawer of words in the studio, lol.

Thanks! I'm not sure about the genre. I really suck at putting lyrics to music. My wife is pretty good at it so she does it for me. I just write music and lyrics and then we try to fit them together which is not really the best way. I'm sure this will have a hard rock feel to it, but who knows for sure. I tend to write more hard rock then anything else.
