Bricks Against The Glass

We were young
We were dumb
We would follow
We would jump
For a dime
For a time
We were broken
We were blind
We were searching
For a cause
We were nowhere
We were lost
We were lost

To a thing we would cling
Stumbling and faltering
All in vain, nothing gained
Down into the kitchen drain
He was everything I loved
Love was everything I feared
So I made a mess of that
And I had to disappear

And the summer came
And the winter too
The birds flew south
Like they always do
And I followed…

And I never meant to make you cry
Guess I never realized
Never asked
Why we were searching
Throwing bricks against the glass

Looking back, looking back
I was hopeless just a hack
Just a sheep who would leap
Over anything that’s steep

He was everything I loved
Love was everything I feared
So I I made a mess of that
In the rearview mirror

And the summer came
And the winter too
The birds flew south
Like they always do
And I followed-

And I never meant to say good-bye
Guess I never realized,
Or never asked
Why you were searching
Throwing bricks against the glass

Now I think of you
My friend in armor
And I look for you
My own safe harbor
And I pray for you
Wherever you are
In the skies above
In the shooting stars….

And I never meant to say good-bye
Guess I never realized it could never
last…
But I know you’re somewhere
Throwing bricks against the glass
Throwing bricks against the glass

We were young
We were dumb
We would follow
We would jump
For a dime
For a time
For a time…
