Broken glass


The sun’s still shining in the big blue sky
But it don’t mean nothing to me

You were the sweetest thing that I ever knew and how I wish I did not crave for that cup of chai latte. If I did not walk into the wrong place at the wrong time, maybe it would have taken me a lot longer to discover this act of betrayal.

Oh let the rain come down
Let the wind blow through me

Would things have been different if I don’t fly around for work? Would your eyes not wander if we have more common topics? My whole life has crashed and I used to think I wouldn’t be so reliant on one single individual. Now nothing I do feels right when it’s not with you.

I’m living in an empty room
With all the windows smashed

Everyone of us was made to weep and every rainy season has its end. While my shattered heart struggles with a new start, still, there is no future with a guy like you. Even if it hurts, moving on is the only way to go.

And I’ve got so little left to lose
That it feels just like I’m walking on broken glass

  1. Alice, I absolutely ADORED how you took so many parts of the song and created your heartbreaking piece. Why is it that we blame ourselves and ponder on all of the what ifs when its out of our control? *sigh*
