Ryan Adams – Broken Things (2017)

 

I’ve come to you from broken things
I’ve crawled to you on my hands and knees
Sailed to you across the seven seas
If only to hear you say my name

I’ve come to you from broken times
I’ve showed you my face with no disguise
My memories a mirror without eyes
If only to take away your pain
If only to hear you say my name

[Chorus]
You’re the whisper in the rising wind
Empty and so cold, too dark for the birds to fly in
And they’re lined up on the wall
And as I’m walking by, they scatter and take off
I watch them as they rise into the sun
If only you believed you were the one

When the day is new the light is warm
Upon the bed the curtain is drawn and torn
The shadows forming, falling just behind
If only you believed all of my lies

Hanging in my heart just like a flag
When I’m lazy in the wind, the colors sag
As the clouds go rolling off the hill
Can’t tell where the rooves begin and end
No more will I know my home again

[Chorus]
Hear the whisper of the rising wind
Empty and so cold too dark for the birds to fly in
They’re lined up on the wall
As I’m walking by they scatter and take off
Watch them as they rise into the sun

If only you believed you were the one
If only you believed you were the one
If only you believed you were the one
