Sam Tompkins – You Broke My Heart So Gently Lyrics

You Broke My Heart So Gently By Sam Tompkins Lyrics

Boo, I need you around
The pressure’s getting way too heavy now
And you should know that I’m not ready, no
Not good at being alone
I know you know that I am empty now
Getting to sleep so very rarely now
We on different paths, I’ve known that for some time
Girl this s---’s so sad and it’s like every night
This home just ain’t a home
I know you broke my heart so gently
How does missing you just feel unhealthy now?

I could be chillin’ with a girl who inspires inner brilliance
Now she’s off on her own in the distance
I can’t hit her on the phone for assistance
Though I’ve been wishing this could be different
I ain’t got time to be ignant
But I can’t cut you off like Vincent
So I try my best to keep distant
Fight off the system that makes me the victim, (Uh)
It’s like a fall of a kingdom
Held it up but it’s now just a prison
I can’t leave my house without missing
All of our visions, this is a sickness
Or am I just a witness?
Or could I put an end to this business?
Tie my shoes and walk out of this stillness
Ain’t got the fitness, no

I don’t need a lot, I just want the best now
This been at my neck now, I’ve been feeling low
Hate the way it’s gone, my life’s such a mess now
Can’t deal with the stress now, I’ve been feeling

Boo, I need you around
The pressure’s getting way too heavy now
And you should know that I’m not ready, no
Not good at being alone
I know you know that I am empty now
Getting to sleep so very rarely now
We on different paths, I’ve known that for some time
Girl this s---’s so sad and it’s like every night
This home just ain’t a home
I know you broke my heart so gently
How does missing you just feel unhealthy now?

Bottling up all of my own soul, getting over it, I don’t know
Imma be straight, this ain’t been great
It feels like I’m dying but it’s so slow
Waking me up with that “Morning boo”
Thinkin’ ’bout that and I feel so blue
Maybe I’ll wait and it will be fate
Or am I just sitting in my own tomb?
This ain’t my life and it’s not right
I’m thinkin’ ’bout you all of my night
I wanna catch flights but I don’t like
The fear to fall or what that ignites
You were type, not one of my stripes
I think of you and I get good vibes
At least before you went of out of sight, yeah

I don’t need a lot, I just want the best now
This been at my neck now, I’ve been feeling low
Hate the way it’s gone, my life’s such a mess now
Can’t deal with the stress now, I’ve been feeling low
I don’t need a lot, I just want the best now
This been at my neck now, I’ve been feeling low
Hate the way it’s gone, my life’s such a mess now
Can’t deal with the stress now, I’ve been feeling

Boo, I need you around
The pressure’s getting way too heavy now
And you should know that I’m not ready, no
Not good at being alone
I know you know that I am empty now
Getting to sleep so very rarely now
We on different paths, I’ve known that for some time
Girl this s---’s so sad and it’s like every night
This home just ain’t a home
I know you broke my heart so gently
How does missing you just feel unhealthy now?
