Tuesday's Broken

  • Yesterday hell rain down
    Another kid, another school, in another town
    Think about how to tell my son
    Think about that one got a gun

    There are mysteries down where the blood meets the bone
    The loneliness there, wouldn't leave him alone
    But what if we try to reach him with words
    What if we looked in his eyes and asked "where does it hurt?"
    Would he find all he was worth?
    Monday was hoping
    But Tuesday's broken

    On the bed, feet up on the wall
    Her eyes are red, and wet, and she wants to end it all
    Easy to be mean on the screen, cowards call you names
    She reads the lies and multiplies the hurt and shame
    Man, it's a number's game

    but there are mysteries down where the blood meets the bone
    The loneliness there, it won't leave her alone
    But what if we try to reach her with words
    What if we looked in her eyes and asked "where does it hurt?"
    Would she find all she was worth?
    Monday was hoping
    But Tuesday's broken

    Like voices, won't make a sound
    We keep missing chances to turn it around
    If somebody's hurting right now
    Open your mouth

    What if we try to reach them with words
    What if we looked in their eyes and asked "where does it hurt?"
    Would they find all they were worth?
    Monday was hoping
    Don't leave it unspoken
