Being Broken

from by Oakes & Smith



Crack, crack went my heart
And I tripped and fell right through
But I don't mind being broken
Into pieces over you

Crack, crack went the night
And my eyes flew open, awake

I was blinded, looking at your face
So close, yet so far from me
In the breaking of the looking glass
I can see the light you see

Crack, crack goes the egg
And a bird falls out sometimes

As we are making all these plans
Against the same life we live
In the breaking of the coming day
We can see the life we love


from The School Session, released August 8, 2011
