Dolly Parton – Shattered Image lyrics

I used to sit for hours as a kid
And dangle my feet from an old flat bridge
Seeing myself in the water below
Shatter my image with the rocks I'd throw
Shatter my image with the rocks I'd throw

Long time gone and a long time ago
When I shattered my image with the rocks I'd throw
The world is cruel and people are cold
Now they shatter my image with the rocks they throw
Shatter my image with the rocks they throw

I'm far from perfect but I ain't all bad
And it hurts me more than it makes me mad
We all do things that we don't want told
And we all throw stones that we shouldn't throw
You shatter my image with the rocks you throw

Long time gone and a long time ago
When I shattered my image with the rocks I'd throw
The world is cruel and people are cold
Now they shatter my image with the rocks they throw
Shatter my image with the rocks they throw

If you live in a glass house don't throw stones
Don't shatter my image 'til you look at your own
Look at your reflection in your house of glass
Don't open my closet if your own's full of trash
Stay out of my closet if your own's full of trash

Long time gone and a long time ago
When I shattered my image with the rocks I'd throw
The world is cruel and people are cold
Now they shatter my image with the rocks they throw
Shatter my image with the rocks they throw

Shatter my image with the rocks you throw
Don't shatter my image with the rocks you throw
