Everything Put Together Falls Apart « See All Songs


Never hides your broken bones
And I don’t know why
You’d want to try
It’s plain to see you’re on your own
Oh, I ain’t blind, no
Some folks are crazy
Others walk that borderline
Watch what you’re doing

Taking downs to get off to sleep
And ups to start you on your way
After a while, they’ll change your style
I see it happening every day
Oh, spare your heart
Everything put together

Sooner or later falls apart
There’s nothing to it, nothing to it
And you can cry
You can lie
For all the good it’ll do you
You can die
But when it’s done
And the police come, and they lay you down for dead
Oh, just remember what I said
