Cyndi LauperBroken Glass

Ever since I could understand My mother said to me "don't you ever let a man hit you, Don't you grow up like me" So I swore I'd never be like her Or my grandmother too Ever if it meant I'd be alone Ever if it meant I'd be alone. 'cause she looked 'cause she looked like broken glass When she fell to the ground I heard the sound of thunder Trailing off When she started coming 'round But she couldn't make him stop And she wouldn't let it go So everytime she got back up Like broken glass went tumblin' down Tumblin' down First time that I saw your face You looked so lost and kind Should have recognized that Troubled look From the road I left behind But I thought that I could comfort you Or was it you could comfort me, Never saw your anger 'till you blew Never saw your anger 'till you blew And I feel Oh I'd feel like broken glass When I fell to the ground I heard the sound of thunder Trailing off When I started coming 'round But I couldn't make you stop And you wouldn't let it go So everytime I got back up Like broken glass went tumbling down... The slightest thing could spark you There was always hell to pay I could feel your darkness in me And I knew just what to say And the rest I can't remember But it sounded like a gun But it could have been a firecracker It could have been a firecracker Made me run And you looked Oh you looked like broken glass When you fell to the ground I heard the sound of thunder Trailing off When you started coming 'round But I couldn't make you stop And you wouldn't let it go So this time when you got back up Like broken glass you went Just like broken glass Just like broken glass... ...tumbling down, tumbling down...
