Ever since I could understand
My mother said to me
"Don't you ever let a man hit you
And don't you grow up like me"

So I swore I'd never be like her
Or my grandmother too
Even if it meant I'd be alone
Even if it meant I'd be alone

'Cause she looked, oh 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 every time she got back up
Like broken glass went tumblin' down, tumbling down, tumbling 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 'til you blew
Never saw your anger 'til 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 every time I got back up
Like broken glass went tumbling down, tumbling down, tumbling down

Like broken glass
Like broken glass

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

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
Tumbling down, tumbling down, tumbling down

You went tumbling down, tumbling down, tumbling down, tumbling down
Crash, like broken glass
Crash, like broken glass
Crash, like broken glass
You went, you went tumbling down, tumbling down, tumbling down

Crash
Like broken glass
Like broken glass
Like broken glass
Like broken glass
You went, you went tumbling down
