Shattered


Every time I get close you will leave in a hurry You can break on the shore, make me wade in your wreckage You can flow on and on, make me wait till you’re ready

Never know if your touch should be colder or hotter If your love is a sea or a stretch of white water

When you hold me I feel like I’m swept by your rapids To a place where I drown, to a place where I’m stranded Never know if you give me your all or a quarter If your love is a sea or a stretch of white water

In your arms I’m a saint, in your arms I’m a hazard On your tide I’ll be saved, on your rocks I’ll be shattered shattered shattered shattered again

I will never be close, I will never be precious I will never go deep where you keep all your treasures

There are days when I feel like a chain round your ankle But I’ll keep you afloat and I won’t be your anchor

Never know if we sail or just go through the motions If my love is your wave or a drop in your ocean

In your arms I’m a saint, in your arms I’m a hazard On your tide I’ll be saved, on your rocks I’ll be shattered shattered shattered shattered again

In your arms I’m a saint, in your arms I’m a hazard On your tide I’ll be saved, on your rocks I’ll be shattered shattered shattered shattered again
