Reverse Faults

  • There's a fault in my structure
    It's always you and never me
    I threw the blame and it shattered
    And now there's broken glass praying to be healed
    You struck a chord and I miss it
    You definitely broke all the strings
    When you get close, I get distant
    Instead I'll drive away to a place unreal
    And tell me how that feels

    Took the break pads out the car
    And I flew
    I smashed this window in my heart
    And I blamed you
    This time it's taking me apart
    Explosive truth
    Except this time I went too far
    And I hurt you
    I wish I could take it back right now

    Where's that smile when it renders
    Where was I when you called?
    I shot the blame and it scattered
    Now there's bullet holes spread across the walls
    I took the shape of a bitter
    Slipped myself underneath your door
    In this red room we'd be better
    And not standing of all our wrongs
    Now can we move along?

    You took the break pads out the car
    And I flew
    I smashed this window in my heart
    And I blamed you
    This time it's taking me apart
    Explosive truth
    Except this time I went too far
    And I hurt you
    I wish I could take it back right Writer/s: Sampha Sisay
