broken strings

let me hold you for the last time
it's the last chance to feel again
but you broke me
now I can't feel anything

when I love you it's so untrue
I can't even convince myself
when I'm speaking it's the voice of someone else

it tears me up
I try to hold on but it hurts too much
I try to forgive but it's not enough to make it all okay

you can't play on broken strings
you can't feel anything
that your heart don't want to feel
I can't tell you something that ain't real

the truth hurts and a lie's worse
how can I give anymore
when I love you a little less than before

what are we doing
we are turning into dust
playing house in the ruins of us

running back through the fire
when there's nothing left to save
it's like chasing the very last train when it's too late
[James Morrison]
