Up

I brought out my memories as a write up
That together with me you can break it up

Our relationship was smooth and brightened up
Until you turn wild and seek a break up

I was actually pleading you to speak up
but instead you chose rather not to speak up

You go behind and said I broke up
now I’ve met you again and I’m saying shut up

It was all but a relationship which you either make up
or get sick of it and break up

I won't sleep, I won't slumber, I won't stay up
I will be the one that will kiss your cheeks and say wake up

I am weak and tired my energy is used up
Come, bring me a miracle say to me like Christ, rise up

I am weary, I can’t even sit up
Re-infuse power in me, say stand up

My very own heart you've broken up
I need a heart mender, soft and tender to mend it up

I know how I looked when I got dressed up
I also reckon with you how weary and pale am stressed up

but even though you won't build me up
I am my own constructor so I won't give up

because even though you got me stirred up
I’ll keep my face bright and cheer-up
