Everything Breaks


Lyrics & Info

Performances (137)

Under the shadows, forbidden and hot 
Desire grows more often than not 
I'm sorry is a stupid word 
It's a stupid thing to say 
Especially considering it's not like I planned it this way 
But I'm sorry is all that there is left of me 
I'm so sorry this love made me whole 
And left you empty

Maybe I should've loved you better 
Maybe you should've loved me more 
Maybe our hearts were just next in line 
Maybe everything breaks sometime 
Everything breaks sometime

It's hard to believe it's boiled down to this 
It can't all be just healed by a kiss 
It's hard to stare at you, knowing you like I have 
We used to feel so close; now we feel so bad 
And your arms were once just like the safest harbor 
But now they offer no shelter from the storm

Maybe I could've loved you better 
Maybe you should've loved me more 
Maybe our hearts were just next in line 
Maybe everything breaks sometime 
Everything breaks sometime 
I am so sorry 
I guess everything breaks sometime

“I wrote this song about 20 years ago. But doing it now and recording it now, I didn’t get through it without sobbing on every single take. This song has more relevance now than it did when I wrote it.” Picking Up the Pieces Press Release
