  1. Shatter

From the recording Walking in on America

Lyrics

There was still a thread of moonlight
 
Peeking through her open door
 
Took a last look at the city
 
Reached into her dresser drawer
 
And the papers told the story
Yeah they said she had it all
 
But there was no port of refuge
 
On that night she hit that wall
 
Ain’t that always how it goes?
 
What’s inside never shows
 
Underneath we’re all shattered
 
We stumble and we stagger
 
As we search for happiness
 
And if sorrow don’t take everything
 
Well, time will steal what’s left
 
And for all the things you’ve suffered
 
You can never make amends
 
You just chose to sift the ashes
 
Or you chose to live again
 
Ain’t that always how it goes?
 
What’s inside never shows
 
In the end we all shatter
 
Every road we’ve been down
What we’ve lost, what we’ve found
 
 
 
Let it go because it don’t matter
 
No, it don’t matter now
 
So I fell into your beauty
 
Like a seed into the ground
 
But these scars they get so heavy
 
And I ought to lay them down
