EVEN IF YOU BREAK MY HEART

Edge to your voice like steel
You say you want something real, well, it’s all around you

It’s all around you my love
Fingers dance across the strings
Searching for answers buried within your father’s old guitar

It’s all around you my love

There’s nothing more that I can do

It doesn’t matter what I say
It doesn’t matter what you don’t
I will always love you

Together just feels so hard
But there’s no amount of time or space apart

Because even if you break my heart
I will always love you

All the ugly things we’ve seen
Love isn’t always clean, no
It tests you, it breaks you, it beats you down
It leaves you in the gutter with your fears and your sounds

Passion and history bind us like chains
Sweet memories of the Harbour Bridge shimmering in the rain

I might feel everything, and you might feel nothing at all
Do you remember when we lost the joy of it all?

There’s nothing more that I can do

It doesn’t matter what I say
It doesn’t matter what you don’t
I will always love you

Together just feels so hard
But there’s no amount of time or space apart Because even if you break my heart
I will always love you

If I’m the mirror in which you see

This shattered image of yourself

Is it you or me that’s broken?

Together feels so damn hard
But there’s no amount of time or space apart

Because even if you break my heart
I will always love you (x3)

 

 

TEARS WE'VE BEEN HOLDING BACK

Well now my friend there's so much I've left to say

Before I start searching for your face in yesterday

Creatures of hope though we may be

We're bound by fate, so cruel is she

That we stand here at the airport in wistful agony

Somedays we laugh, somedays we cry

Somedays we're broken, somedays we're fine

But through it all you cared for me, and I for you

You bore my soul in all its peculiar shapes

You stared down all of the ugliness in me

Sometimes I truly loathed myself because you were so good

Two wretched fools in a raging riptide

We never fought it or understood

Some days we laugh, somedays we cry

Some days we're broken, somedays we're fine

But through it all you cared for me

Some days we love, somedays we're just speaking fire

Some days we love, somedays we just wanna die

Here comes the moment where we must say goodbye

The tears that we've been holding back come rolling in

As you let me go and board that place

A  smile finds my face again, cos goddamn what a time it's been, and what a time it's going to be

Some days we laugh, somedays we cry

Some days we're broken, somedays we're fine

Somedays we  love, somedays we just wanna hurt

Somedays we're broken, somedays we shine
