Broken Glass

Ever since I could understand
my mother said to me
"don’t you ever let a man hit you,
don’t you grow up like me"
so I swore I’d never be like her
or my grandmother too
even if it meant I’d be alone
even if it meant I’d be alone

‘Cause she looked
‘Cause she looked like broken glass
when she fell to the ground
I heard the sound of thunder
trailing off
when she started coming ’round
but she couldn’t make him stop
and she wouldn’t let it go
so everytime she got back up
like broken glass went tumblin’ down
tumblin’ down

First time that I saw your face
you looked so lost and kind
should have recognized that
troubled look
from the road I left behind
but I thought that I could comfort you
or was it you could comfort me
never saw your anger ’till you blew
never saw your anger ’till you blew

And I’d feel
oh I’d feel like broken glass
when I fell to the ground
I heard the sound of thunder
trailing off
when I started coming ’round
but I couldn’t make you stop
and you wouldn’t let it go
so everytime I got back up
like broken glass went tumbling down…

The slightest thing could spark you
there was always hell to pay
I could feel your darkness in me
and I knew just what to say
and the rest I can’t remember
but it sounded like a gun
but it could have been a firecracker
it could have been a firecracker
made me run

And you looked
oh you looked like broken glass
when you fell to the ground
I heard the sound of thunder
trailing off
when you started coming ’round
but I couldn’t make you stop
and you wouldn’t let it go
so this time when you got back up
like broken glass you went
just like broken glass
just like broken glass…
…tumbling down, tumbling down…
