I wrote this song several years ago about a long distance relationship but later found a new meaning...
I showed the song to Crossword and he came back the next day with a perfectly suited 16 bars.
Who knew acoustic/rock and rap could work so well?
Well just because we're far apart,
it doesn't mean we're broken up.
Even when the hardest part,
is wondering what you're doing.
I'll embrace the change,
and we'll remain the same.
Because until the end,
you'll always be my best friend
And when the glass is shattered,
just remember we're not broken.
And when the nights are silent,
just remember my voice spoken.
Sometimes it feels hard, I know it can be tough,
through hell i know our love's enough.
Our hands are cold with shame,
and so hot fingers point to blame.
We wont mean it, or believe it,
trust me of that I know.
I'll hold you never let go,
And when the glass is shattered
just remember we're not broken
And when the nights are silent
just remember my voice spoken
It's six o'clock, alarm's off, my heart throbs.
The one girl I need is gone, I feel robbed of my vision.
Love's blind, no dog to eye see,
but there's always something there to remind me.
From your empty pillow case,
to the picture frame on the window pane.
There is no pain greater than being away from you.
I truly wish you'd spend less time on my mind, and more in my bed.
Maybe I'm talking selfish, it's testing.
We could meet halfway like omnivore intestines.
Go for dinner, eating shellfish.
Then turn back on the same road alone again.
Wanna stay your friend, but also know it spells the end.
So we're fractured, not broken.
Recovery time shortened.
I'll be waiting for you when you come back home baby girl.
You're the only one that got me this open,
So I'm hoping,
We're not broken.
