I locked my keys in the car
I'm pleadin' for some change,
The meter treats me like a stranger now
Flashing zeros

I'm jugglin' a drink too full
While tuggin' on a leash that you pull
And joggin' my memory for
The way to your door

I have been broken open
By my most trusted friend
I was through, right card, you were the safe bet
I've been broken open

I'm up and down that way
I'm up and down that way
It's easier to say
That I'm doin' okay
Than bother to explain
The water risin'

Throw out your crystal ball
And your weather vane
Picasso don't pre-meditate
He just paint
Tonight it's so easy
To overflow

I have been broken open
Was a perfect gentleman
Now I'm smashin' champagne, tying cans
Feel like celebrating

I have been broken open
Dug to China with their hands
When you asked me if I'd like to dance
I've been broken open

Flow over me, flow over, flow
Over flow

It feels so strange to feel good
And when I was the fire, you were wood
So when I was petrified
You understood

I have been broken open
This was not my master plan
I was comfortable watching from the stands
I've been broken open

All my edges are exposed
I was once content alone
Now you are the one that I call home
I've been broken open

Flow over me, flow over, flow
Flow over me, flow over, flow
Flow over me, flow over, flow
Flow over me, flow over, flow

Flow over me, flow over, flow
Flow over me, flow over, flow
Flow over me, flow over, flow
