Bareilles, Sara - Splintering Lyrics




We found a tender love it blossomed wild and free.
Pure proof was in your arms when you were kissing me.
I was an open book, you were an ocean breeze;
rustling through pages I never should have let you see.
Never should have let you see.

Was I so wrong being such an open book?
Trusting so soon, losing all the tender time it took to love you,
just to crawl away with broken wings
and the pieces of my heart still splintering.
The pieces of my heart still splintering.

Friend’s asking where you are, say I misunderstood.
I say he’s gone away, but he’s not gone for good.
Speak of romantic plans we’re looking forward to.
Meanwhile, imagining you end up with someone new.

Was I so wrong being such an open book?
Trusting so soon, losing all the tender time it took to love you,
just to crawl away with broken wings
and the pieces of my heart still splintering.
The pieces of my heart still splintering.

It’s surely over now, but how I ache inside.
This ocean full of tears that I’m about to cry.
You’re sorry for this pain, yeah, that’s not what you meant.
I’m sorry too but my feelings more permanent.

Was I so wrong being such an open book?
Trusting so soon, losing all the tender time it took to love you,
just to crawl away with broken wings
and the pieces of my heart still splintering.
The pieces of my heart still splintering.
The pieces of my heart still, pieces of my heart.

    You’ve let us see so much of you. Your fans are grateful, hence thankful—-yet we know that such revelations come @ a high price to you...

  4. The Wake Up Call

    This is nice, but it doesn't sound like Sara Bareilles at all...

  5. laura sewell

    I feel like I wrote this song to myself. But I didnt. Most of my best work is in a sort of response to her lesser known works, though. For that I can say thanks.
