Crystal teardrops glisten in the sun
I’m crying over you;
now I’m the helpless one
I tore those earrings from my ears
I broke a glass
I smashed a mirror
Are you proud of the damage you’ve done?

[Chorus]
You’re beating down
beating down
the walls I built up just for you
You’re damaging
damaging
the masks I wore so I could be
good enough to be the one,
but now that you’re done having your fun,
I guess I’ll go along and leave you be, baby

I only wish that I could see your face
To tell you that there’s now an empty space
A giant hole where my heart should be
Now there’s an “I”
where there was a “we”
I’m coming back, baby, you wait and see

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
I ran and hid from you
just like a child scared at night
but I can’t move forward
I can’t put up this fight
I only wish that I could tell you
All the things I know
But baby,
I really have to go

[Chorus]

I sat down with a pad of paper, a pen, and my guitar Layla when I was steaming mad and crying the other day. This is what came out.
