Until It Breaks

lyrics

I go on believin'
You're the pill I need to take
You go on deceivin'
Bend the bough that wants to break
I go on believin'
You're the pill I need to take
So I'm not leavin'
Bend this bough until it breaks

I would like to find the words
To tell you how it feels
To pull you from the gravity
That is dragging at your heels

It has been so hard
Pulling out the shards
Splintered glass cuts deep
Lip service is cheap

But I go on believin'
You're the pill I need to take
You go on deceivin'
Bend the bough that wants to break
I go on believin'
You're the pill I need to take
So I'm not leavin'
Bend this bough until it breaks

I would like to find a way
To keep from going blind
To step back from the twister
That is spinning in your mind

I have weathered shame
Holding on to blame
Shoulders bowing down
Knees upon the ground

Should I go on believin'
You're the pill I need to take
You'll go on deceivin'
Bend the bough that wants to break
I go on believin'
You're the pill I need to take
So I'm not leavin'
Bend this bough until it breaks

I have grown so tired
That I barely even sleep
Buried here in clutter
I've forgotten how to sweep

So I won't go on believin'
You're the pill I need to take
You'll go on deceivin'
Bend this bough until it breaks
I won't go on believin'
You're the pill I need to take
So I am leavin'
Mend this heart before it breaks
Mend this heart before it breaks
Mend this heart before it breaks
Before it breaks

Break it off
Break it off
Break it off
