Glass

Album: Thompson Square (2011)
  • Trying to live and love,
    With a heart that can't be broken,
    Is like trying to see the light with eyes that can't be opened.
    Yeah, we both carry baggage,
    We picked up on our way, so if you love me do it gently,
    And I will do the same.

    We may shine, we may shatter,
    We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
    We are fragile, we are human,
    We are shaped by the light we let through us,
    We break fast, cause we are glass.
    'Cause we are glass.

    I'll let you look inside me, through the stains and through the cracks,
    And in the darkness of this moment,
    You see the good and bad.
    But try not to judge me, 'cause we've walked down different paths,
    But it brought us here together, so I won't take that back.

    We may shine, we may shatter,
    We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
    We are fragile, we are human,
    We are shaped by the light we let through us,
    We break fast, cause we are glass.

    We might be oil and water, this could be a big mistake,
    We might burn like gasoline and fire,
    It's a chance we'll have to take.

    We may shine, we may shatter,
    We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
    We are fragile, we are human,
    And we are shaped by the light we let through us,
    We break fast, cause we are glass.
    We are glass. Writer/s: JON NITE, ROSS COPPERMAN
