Let It Break

lyrics

there’s always been a crack
a tiny edge running through me and you
from front to back
zigzagging side to side
the way i deny that
we’re unsolvable mysteries
if i can push aside my doubts
and the ways you lie to me
If I brave a step closer
will the bottom drop out?

every time, again....
you say, “oh my love,
you know that’s not what I meant”
hope is in our grasp
but when my heart’s at stake
you just let it...

I’m an expert at defending you
to myself and to all my friends
It’s just that I really thought
that you and i
we could untangle the knots
before we reached our rope’s end
‘cause this love is true
i can see you don’t believe in it
so i can’t believe in you
and I finally shut the door
still you push on through

every time, again....
you say, “oh my love,
you know that’s not what I meant”
Hope is in our grasp
but when my heart’s at stake
you just let it...

and if there’s any bitterness
it’s just i resent you more because
for now, more or less
you’re the one thing in this life
of which I was sure
and then there’s that you
with both hands untied
and, oh, wide awake
what did you do?
when my heart was at stake
you just let it break

every time, again...
you say, “oh my love,
you know that’s not what I meant"
hope is in our grasp.
but then it falls away

every single time, again
I say “bless my soul
I know we won’t recover from this”
hope is out of grasp
‘cause when my heart’s at stake
you just let it break
