02. Breaking

New Surrender
by Anberlin



 

Do you memorize theatrical lines
that seem to lead them in
Play the role with the good girl heart
hide the tangled web within
Who was it that lead you on
that made you want to hurt me so
Who are you out to forget
who’s forgot you long ago

Do you still feel it
calling in the air tonight
do you still feel it
seems like you’ve done this before
You make breaking hearts look so easy
seems like you’ve done this before
You’ve got breaking hearts all but down
and you’ve done this, you’ve done this before
You make stealing hearts look so easy
Where is the girl I adore
You’ve got breaking up all but down
I can’t love a thief anymore

Do you collect the souls you’ve lost
in the top of your dresser drawer
count the number of tears displaced
on lonely bedroom floors
a machine where your heart once was
slowly takes the place of you
only hold the memories now
of a love I though I knew

Do you still feel it
calling in the air tonight
Do you still feel it
Seems like you’ve done this before
You make breaking hearts look so easy
seems like you’ve done this before
You’ve got breaking up all but down
and you’ve done this, you’ve done this before
You make stealing hearts look so easy
Where is the girl I adore
You’ve got breaking up all but down
and I can’t love a thief anymore

The best you could hope to be
is now just a bitter sweet memory

you make breaking hearts look so easy

Christian · Milligan · Walker · Anberlin

Behind the Song:
'The first time we played this song was acoustic for my friend John Fraziers wedding weekend in Seattle, people loved it and I remember looking at Christian and saying ‘we did it’ so everyone could hear.

This should not have been our follow up single, maybe we shouldn’t have had a follow up on this record. If you don’t know how eclectic and ADHD Anberlin records can be it might throw you off if you heard a pop song like this next to FGD on your radio.

A machine where your heart once was is a Darth Vader reference.

Calling in the air tonight is a Phil Collins reference.

Butch Walker said he liked this song. YES.' - Stephen Christian
