Fragile Things

The door was unlocked
The TV was on
The foundation's here, but the magic is gone
I let you in then you let it all decay
The lights are burnt out
The flowers are dead
Somehow I'm still supposed to sleep in this bed
Gave you a key but I couldn't make you stay
But I'm still glad you came to visit

Love is like a house of fragile things
Where hearts can be broken as easy as antiques
And now there's glass all shattered at my feet
What we built together, you left in smithereens

I'll paint all the walls a fresh coat of blue
But I'll never cover the memory of you
Watching me sleep, dancing on your feet always
I'll replace the floors, whatever I do
The ghost of you will always live in these rooms
You get to leave, I don't have that luxury
But I'm still glad you came to visit

Love is like a house of fragile things
Where hearts can be broken as easy as antiques
And now there's glass all shattered at my feet
What we built together, you left in smithereens
Love is like a house of fragile things
Where hearts can be broken as easy as antiques
