Smithereens Submit Correct Lyrics

I saw your picture it made me sorry
For all the things I never said
It seems that you have cause to worry
It seems that you don't wish me well

Behind the victim, behind the trouble
Are all the things you've not expressed
I see you standing behind your mother
I see you hiding behind a dress

So don't make me sad
I couldn't stand to watch you fall
'Cause everybody has a tender heart
Remember this
I didn't mean to break it down to smithereens

I heard you crying, I learned the story
I saw the shadows behind the past
They fall behind you and creep up slowly
We're only human behind the mask

So don't take me down
I couldn't stand to watch you fall
'Cause everybody has a broken heart
Remember this
I couldn't stand to break it down to smithereens

And you say everybody is an island of their own
And you say everybody has a tender heart
Remember this
I couldn't bear to break it down to smithereens

I didn't mean to break it down
I didn't mean to smithereens
I didn't mean to break it down
I didn't mean to smithereens

Everybody is an island to themselves
Don't you know? Don't you?
Everybody is an island to themselves
Everybody is an island to themselves
Don't you know?
