Buster Crabbe: Break Me Like A Rock

Break Me Like a Rock

(Anderson)

Turn back the clock and win an hour of time
That you just waste on yellowed pages
And tell the pictures you've been misunderstood
So long, so wrong
You've been so good
But then your passionate pride defiles your pity with guilt
And so you push it inside

Oh, break me like a rock
I sit here alone with myself and my song
Building brand-new lies
To convince myself that you were wrong

You crack the blinds and let the afternoon clouds
Soak the room in shadow
And drown your eyes with lovelorn juvenile tears
So old, grown cold
Since those young years

Oh, break me like a rock
I sit here alone with myself and my song
Building brand-new lies
To convince myself that you were wrong
