Plastic heart


(Keyboard INTRO)
(Choir AH)
There is something different in you tonight
You and I make a beautiful sight, together
So, don’t you see something different in you tonight, it’s us
Making it different

Well, if you find yourself in trouble
And, you constantly struggle
Just close your eyes, lean back
Just trust me, and I’ll be behind
Now, don’t open your eyes, don’t turn your back
Don’t turn to stab me hard
You can shed all your skin
That wore all your sin
It broke three hearts in a row

There is something different in you tonight. Do you see it?
You and I make a beautiful sight, together
So, don’t you see something different in you tonight
You can see, you can feel it’s different tonight, it’s us
Making the difference

I forget
At least I try to
Forget my first time with you
And, bury my last time, with you
But, you so easily crumbled my heart
And my love for you
Your scar is unseen, your pain is unseen
Because I broke a plastic heart

(Drums begin)

There is something different in you tonight. Don’t you see it?
You and I, we made a beautiful sight, together
So, don’t you see something different here tonight
You can see, you can feel it’s different tonight, it’s us who
Made the difference

So, you feel, there is something different tonight. Don’t you feel it?
You and I, we made a beautiful sight, while together
So, you see something different in you tonight
You can see and you can feel it, it’s different tonight, it’s us who
Made the difference

See something different tonight (X4)
It’s the difference
The difference (X2)
That difference
That changed our lives
Don’t you see?
The difference

Plastic, as in fake, molded, hard...

Moldable, changeable... changed

Together, the change is made, beauty revealed, hearts healed...

Very interesting and different piece darling!

Judith Ellis said...

Interesting refrain, Ajey, as that "something different" begins in one voice but ends in two. Another interesting point is the idea of a plastic moon. Plastic doesn't reflect, but the moon does the surface of the earth. There is a superficiality here, but I was trying to determine from whom it emanated especially because the refrain ends in two. Thoughtful, piece. Thanks, nephew.

I almost want to say that the plastic heart was the fake one given to someone else and you broke into it, to find the real one within, the one that means the most in all its realness- hence the something different. But I gotta tell you, I'm not entirely sure if I'm right on that.

But I think this is a brilliant piece Ajey! I'm going to have to look it over a few more times though, it seems there is much hidden in this one..

Well done, keep at it my friend!

brushes across the heart like a
willow tree in the evening...
"there's something different in
you tonight"...great phrase to
last many song and poem.

Saadi said...

Whoaaa...this is sooooo amazing!! I actually really like this...the simplicity..it's not abstract n obscure like most of ur previous one!!!

The first four lines...i think tht's the chorus! Nehow...they're brilliant!!!

Ajey,

I have seen you use words economically most of the times. This time it is elaborate. You have mastered both worlds. This one is a beautiful song. I feel that there is a person whose heart has been broken. This person is now trying to show how they made a difference when they were together, and how they would've continue to make a difference if they were still together. Just my take.

Great write
The morphing of two into one to create something new

Triana said...

I love it Ajey! The power of the words strikes me in deeply emotional ways. Superb!

Alexandra Garland said...

Ajey,
We are all sinners at some time... the words here are like a call for cleansing and forgiveness... It's all possible and up to us if we are willing to do so. Very interesting piece!!
