Ground Zero©

I used up all my love to build you up/

 

Verse:

Looking in the mirror who is this woman staring back at me/

Wish she’d speak a little clearer/

Speak up for yourself so I can hear ya/

 

You say you’ve lost your way/

You’ve strayed far from home/

Into a world full of pleasures unknown/

Began building treasures for others, abandoned your own/

 

B-Sect:

I was so invested in you/

I managed to forget about me/

Used all my lovin’ to build you up/

Demolished myself completely/

 

And now I’m gathering the pieces/

I’ll always believe in salvaging self/

If for no other reason than seeing/

The glimmer of hope even at ground zero/

 

Hook:

Love begins today/

Love yourself today/

Love begins today/

(I used up all my love to build you up)

It’s never too late/

 

Verse:

Staring at my pictures/

Remembering me/

Drawing from my strength/

Gaining perspective and clarity/

 

I know I’ve lost my way/

But I’ll make it back in one piece/

Of all these dilapidated buildings/

Don’t you go naming one after me/

 

B-Sect:

I know I gave me all to you but I'll be damned if I'm through/

And now that all the dust has settled/

It’s time to focus on putting me back together/

 

And now I’m gathering the pieces/

I’ll always believe in salvaging self/

If for no other reason than seeing/

The glimmer of hope even at ground zero/

 

 

Vamp:

Pick up your heart, mend it at the same time/

Because it’s never too late/

 

Hook:Love begins today/

Love yourself today/

Love begins today/

(I used up all my love to build you up)

It’s never too late/

 

Bridge:

No matter how hard you fall always pick yourself up and dust yourself off/

No matter many pieces you shatter into love will mend you back together like new/

With every new start put yourself first, protect your heart/

But don’t close yourself off/

Because there’s a blessing of growth waiting at ground zero/

 

The ground is where flowers grow/

Opportunity to sow/

Perfect conditions to show/

You’re much stronger than you’ve known/

 

Because there’s a blessing of growth waiting at ground zero/
