GLASS

When you first fell for me you said it was because of the glass

glittering heart in my chest that no one else has

So clear and so open and so crystal and clean

The brightest heart that you’d ever seen

But the thing is that glass is so easy to break

All you need is one tiny mistake

You figured that the shine was all that mattered

You didn’t realize when it slipped from your hands it would shatter

And when you saw just what you’d done

You tried to stop the breaking that had already begun

You tried to put back together the pieces and they cut you deep

And you grew frustrated and tired as I made you bleed

And you finally gave up and walked away

Because the price was too much to pay

Hearts are expensive and one of a kind

And trying to fix the old one drove you out of your mind

So finally you reached the end of your rope

Decided I was all out of hope

Moved on with someone you thought would be stronger

But you’ll break them soon- just a little bit longer

You haven’t been able to take your words back so far

Because they’ve already left thick red scars

Just like an old photo where the color’s started to fade

As you try to put back together the mess that you made

And I

Don’t cry

I don’t say a word

Silence is something that can be heard

Silver, gold, even diamond

You’ll find a way to get to them

Because your own heart is made of stone

It’s chained up and frozen and locked all alone

But it can give too- little by little

Tiny fractures branching out from the middle

And it will happen one day- and I’m warning you

Glass hearts will break- but stone one’s will too
