Broken Glass

  • I'm on a highway full of red lights
    I've lost so many long nights
    Felt words that cut like knives
    I know, I know they're gonna
    Say what they wanna
    I know they're gonna
    Say what they want (want want)

    But I feel it changing
    I can taste it, I'm on the wave and
    I won't waste it
    I have been patient
    But I'm not waiting anymore
    Not anymore, no

    I'm gonna dance on broken glass
    Ey, on broken glass
    And I'm gonna make that ceiling crash (uh)
    That ceiling crash

    So what? Still got knives in my back
    So what? So I'm tied to the tracks
    I'm gonna dance on broken glass
    And here I go, here I go

    (Ooh, ooh, ooh) yeah here I go, here I go
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh) and here I go, here I go

    So I bet on me and my own heartbeat
    When all the odds are piling
    Like bricks around my feet
    You know you know it's more than
    More than just for me
    You know it's worth it
    I still believe, yeah yeah

    I'm gonna dance on broken glass
    Ey, on broken glass
    And I'm gonna make that ceiling crash (uh)
    That ceiling crash

    So what? Still got knives in my back
    So what? So I'm tied to the tracks
    I'm gonna dance on broken glass
    And here I go, here I go

    (Ooh, ooh, ooh) yeah here I go, here I go
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh) and here I go, here I go

    Through to the other side, baby I'll survive
    'Cause you know I am a fighter
    Through to the other side, baby I'm on fire
    'Cause you know I'm a survivor

    Through to the other side, baby I'll survive
    'Cause you know I am a fighter
    Through to the other side, baby I'm on fire (on fire, fire) oh!

    I'm gonna dance on broken glass
    Ey, on broken glass
    And I'm gonna make that ceiling crash (uh)
    That ceiling crash

    So what? Still got knives in my back
    So what? So I'm tied to the tracks
    I'm gonna dance on broken glass
    And here I go, here I go

    (Oh, oh, oh) yea here I go, here I go
    (Oh, oh, oh) and here I go, here I go Writer/s: JARRAD ROGERS, MIKKEL ERIKSEN, NATE CYPHERT, RACHEL PLATTEN, TOR ERIK HERMANSEN
