YOU JUST LOVE YOURSELF by Nicole Laurenne (BMI) (c) 2023 All rights reserved. V they all ran away left you to your own devices trying to make your way on dark beaches and empty houses you broke their windows trying to get into their souls you pulled your charm around you til it stretched thin like taffy C can’t see past your own lips can’t hear but your own words can’t love can’t love can’t - you just love yourself V we all fell for the magic we all hoped we’d found at last a highway out of tragic traffic a bridge above our own wrecks so much for faith again so much for love again so much for breaking open this beaten forgotten piñata of a heart again B the giant amphitheater you built for yourself echoes with your screams and no one else
