Holding On To Broken Things

I knew the moment the door closed, you on the other side

Just three feet, still out of my reach - adrift on an ebbing tide

You were pulling away - pulling away from me

I don't care if he's a good man, faithful soul, gentle eyes

You're gonna have to forgive me if I won't watch you say goodbye

I've got nothing to say - you're pulling away from me


(chorus)

Even if I love you like a car on fire

Spinning out of control down a mountain road in the midnight blue

Still broke my promise that I would never tire

Here's the heartbreak in my one true aptitude

Holding on to broken things is what I do


Guess I'm not done trying to catch the river in my hands,

Waiting on my heart to hear what my reason understands

There ain't no other way - you're pulling away from me

So now I'm holding the doorknob, alone in the room you left

In this place only empty space, warmth and love bereft

And it's here I'll stay - you're pulling away from me


(chorus)


I knew the moment the door closed, you on the other side

That it was me, I set you free, a servant to shame and pride

So I got my way, and I drove you away from me
