Before It Breaks

Around here it's the hardest time of the year.
Waking up, the days are even gone.
Will the collar on my coat, Lord help me, kill off the cold
Will the rain drops sting my eyes or keep them closed?

But I'm feeling no pain
Only the lonely
And my quietest friend
Ever the moonlight
Have I let you in?
Say it ain't so,
Say I'm happy again.

Say it's over.
Say I'm dreaming.
Say I'm better than you left me.
Say you're sorry.
I can take it.

Say you'll wait.
Say you won't.
Say you love me.
Say you don't.
I can make my own mistakes.
Let it bend before it breaks.

I'm alright, don't I seem to be?
Aren't I swinging on the stars?
Don't I wear 'em on my sleeves?
But when you're looking for a crossroads,
It happens every day.
And whichever way you turn,
I'm gonna turn the other way.

And say it's over.
Say I'm dreaming.
Say I'm better than you left me.
Say you're sorry.
I can take it.

Say you'll wait.
Say you won't.
Say you love me.
Say you don't.
I can make my own mistakes.
Learn to let it bend before it breaks.

Say it's over.
Say I'm dreaming.
Say I'm better than you left me.
Say you're sorry.
I can take it.

Say you'll wait.
Say you won't.
Say you love me.
Say you don't.
I can make my own mistakes.
Let it bend before it breaks.
