12. Piece of Glass

Long Line Of Leavers
by Caedmon's Call



 

Can't believe that I did it again
Wake me up from this nightmare
'Cause this monster is filling me up filling me out

Everyday I live a bit less; one night leads to another
Even if I went back they would recognize me or criticize me

Who are you that lies when you stare in my face
Telling me that I'm just a trace of the person I once was
Cause I just can't tell if you're telling the truth or a lie
On you I just can't rely. after all you're just a piece of glass

Still this nightmare's all mine, when I call him he answers
I can tell him when to come, when to stay
Sometimes I'm weaker than he is, is he just letting me win
He can tell me when to come, when to stay

Who are you that lies when you stare in my face
Telling me that I'm just a trace of the person I once was
Cause I just can't tell if you're telling the truth or a lie
On you I just can't rely. after all you're just a piece of glass

Don't talk, listen
Hold me tighter
Stay with me just for a while
Until the sun shines stay with me
Just give me one more day

Who are you that cries when you stare in my face
Telling me that I'm just a trace of the person I once was
Cause we're not the same, you're just a picture of me
You're gone as soon as I leave; you've lived my life for me
And you're no more than a piece of glass
You're no more than just a piece of glass

words and music by Derek Webb and Danielle Young

Behind the Song:
""Piece of Glass" came out of a conversation with Danielle and myself about the pressures that we and our friends were feeling to measure up physically against the standards of our culture. Our battle is with nothing more than our reflection in the mirror and the lies that it tells us about who we really are." - Derek Webb (Caedmon's Call)
