I Gave You Love Made Out Of Glass
I gave you love made out of glass
So you could see right through
And to decide if what’s inside
Could be enough for you.
It shines in light and sings in breeze,
A special kind of gem,
But if it’s cracked in evil act
Uncertainties will stem.
So in you peered to take a look
At reckless, foolish youth
And yet you smiled despite the wild
Of my most secret truth.
You kept it safe for just a while
Until your feelings fled
And then the weight became too great—
Glass broken in your stead.
No longer can I make glass love
For anyone to own
Because without your warmth about
My heart is made of stone.
