Broken Cup – Lyrics

Broken Cup


You tear me down with your words till I’m raw

Till I can’t walk away, can’t even crawl

The currency of your kiss, the cost is this

and I pay it

You are a broken cup, one I still drink out of

I should throw you away

When we make love, when we make war

You tear down walls that weren’t there before

You hold me too tight I can’t breathe I can’t stay I won’t leave

Don’t say it

You are a broken cup, one I still drink out of

I should throw you away

But for the moment it’s good

Your love feels just like it should

I’d ask you to continue but I know that it’s not in you

to stay

that would be too kind, not your way

much too kind, not your way

    I was so happy to finally listen to this and all the songs on Bitter Pills & Delicacies. What a delightful blend of musical styles. Thanks again for making this available.

    1. Dear Ryan, I am so happy this music finally made it to your ears! I remember you had requested it awhile ago but you see I was devising a special plan of delivery all along! Do you have a favorite track? Thank you for the note. xCBx

        Darling has gotten the most play time out of all the tracks so far. What a sweet song that stirs so many memories.
