Things Fall Apart

There was a girl with a broken smile
Haven't seen her around here in a while
She said she wanted out of this town
But she built a wall she couldn't get around 
God, she had a pretty face 
Still, she swore she was a hopeless case
Last time I asked, "how you doing today?"
She said to me as her smile slipped away 
 
Things always fall apart 
No matter how hard you try

to keep them close to heart
You break you bleed 
You're tearing out my heart
Everything always falls apart 

Another guy I ain't seen round here
Guess he got up his courage when he ran out of fear 
He told me every time we met 
How he's lost in an age-old debt 
He's cried and he's prayed for some way out 
But he always ran when he was faced with doubt 
I asked him how'd you get to this spot 
He said to me without a second thought 

Things always fall apart 
No matter how hard you try

to keep them close to heart
You break you bleed 
You're tearing out my heart
Everything always falls apart 

Things always fall apart 
No matter how hard you try

to keep them close to heart
You break you bleed 
You're tearing out my heart
Everything always falls

 

Things always fall apart 
No matter how hard you try

to keep them close to heart
You break you bleed 
you love, you love, you love and still, they leave

Everything always falls apart 

There was a girl with a broken smile

Haven't seen her around here in a while
