JAMES MORRISON


Broken Strings Lyrics

Let me hold you for the last time
It's the last chance to feel again
But you broke me
Now I can't feel anything

When I love you, rings so untrue
I can't even convince myself
When I'm speaking
It's the voice of someone else

Oh, it tears me up
I try to hold on but it hurts too much
I try to forgive but it's not enough
To make it all okay

You can't play on broken strings
You can't feel anything
That your heart don't want to feel
I can't tell you something that ain't real

Oh, the truth hurts
A lie's worse
How can I give anymore
When I love you a little less than before?

Oh, what are we doing?
We are turning into dust
Playing house in the ruins of us
Running back through the fire

When there's nothing left to save
It's like chasing the very last train
When it's too late
Too late

Oh, it tears me up
I try to hold on but it hurts too much
I try to forgive but it's not enough
To make it all okay

You can't play on broken strings
You can't feel anything
That your heart don't want to feel
I can't tell you something that ain't real

Oh, the truth hurts
A lie's worse
I cannot give any more
When I love you a little less than before

Oh, we're running through the fire
When there's nothing left to save
It's like chasing the very last train
When we both know it's too late

You can't play on broken strings
You can't feel anything
That your heart don't want to feel
I can't tell you something that ain't real

Oh, the truth hurts
A lie's worse
I cannot give any more
When I love you a little less than before

Let me hold you for the last time
It's the last chance to feel again

love,a feeling that every person can explain in different words,but when he DESCEPTIONATES u that feeling hurts.Every wrong action makes u loving him a little less or even worst,not loving him anymore
