Shatter

Album: Blurring the Edges (1997)
  • Prick of a pin, no blood on me
    I've been tested, total wasted, in too deep
    To the zone, I retreat
    What doesn't kill ya makes you strong eventually
    Blade to my skin, blurring the edge
    Seven doves are waiting for me up ahead
    I just breathe in, I just breathe out
    I've taken every hairpin curve by now
    I may crack but I'll never shatter
    I may crack but it doesn't matter
    I may crack but I'll never shatter
    I may crack

    Promised the world, dropped in a pool
    Was it fun, did you enjoy acting so cool
    Well, here's the thing, still have my head
    I stumble hard but I'm not sleepin' in your bed
    Saved by the sun, no shame on me
    We come out screaming it's the only time we're free
    I just breathe out, I just breathe in
    I ride the wave until I come again

    I may crack but I'll never shatter
    I may crack but it doesn't matter
    I may crack but I'll never shatter
    I may crack but I'll never shatter
    Cuz I still have a secret
    In the dark I keep it close
    I still have a secret no one knows

    I may crack but I'll never shatter
    Tested, wasted, over and over
    I may crack but it doesn't matter
    In the darkness I am the shatter
    Shake down, twisted and tied
    It's amusing that I'm doing fine
    I just breathe in, I just breathe out
    I may crack, but I'll never shatter
    Cuz I still have a secret
    In the dark I keep it close
    I still have a secret no one knows

    I may crack but I'll never shatter
    I may crack
