« Back to Lyrics

I wish I was braver but I wish you were kind
‘Cause you’ve been silent for weeks no word and no sign
Well I guess I can’t hate it or I’d set myself free
I must need control like the feather on the breeze

When your heart shatters and scatters like glass
It gets spread ‘round the future as much as the past
So you’d better tread lightly find your way through
Before you get stuck and you can’t even move

I wish I was braver and I wish I was wise
But my heart still turns over
When I look in your eyes
Well there’s nowhere to hide
There’s nothing to say
But there’s not point pretending
I could be some other way

I can’t help these feelings it’s my fault I stay
But I can’t take the healing if it takes you away
I should learn how to let you go
But I know that I won’t
So I’m damned if I do, and I’m damned if I don’t but

When your heart shatters and scatters like glass
It gets spread ‘round the future as well as the past
So you’d better tread lightly find a way through
Don’t cling to the old better find something new

Well, maybe love’s knowing when to let go
Or maybe it’s just learning what not to show
Well I rise every morning, swear I’ll change soon
Like the tide rises daily saying, today I’m gonna touch the moon.
Well I wish I could tell you that all that I wanted
Was a place in your heart though I know it’s still haunted
By ghosts and illusions spectral reminders
But she don’t exist babe that’s why you can’t find her but

When your heart shatters and scatters like glass
It gets spread ‘round the future as well as the past
So you’d better tread lightly find a way through
Don’t cling to the old better find something new
