Fool you made the girl fall in love
You said those beautiful things
She thought you spoke things you mean

Caress her skin like it's glass
She hears your voice making plans
And she just breaks in your hands

You don't wanna see somebody beg
As you feel her heart surrender
You begin to fall
How do you say that something's through
When it never even started
At least not for you

You breathe her air and you leave
You keep your mind on yourself
And lie the glass on the shelf
After the heavenly speech
Your body throws holy heat
The angels sing when our eyes meet

It wasn't a lie but it wasn't true
I just wanted to make you feel good
Just wanted you near
I wasn't prepared I wasn't thinking of you
That you could actually love me
It never should have started

She's dreaming back on the past
Every opinion agreed
Doesn't know what to believe

It must have been for a cause
Our lives have so many doors
Don't think about him anymore

But it was the kiss, it took me away
It's like he knew that I am fragile
She said he handled me like glass
And it hurts but it's what I deserve
Because I should have been more careful
With the others that I handled
She said I should have been more
I should have been more
And knowing this I know
That he'll get his
But I don't want the man to suffer
Cause deep down I know that he's glass too
But it really doesn't matter
Until it's happening to you
Everybody breaks
Everybody breaks
Sometimes

    The song is the story of a one sided "relationship" told from both angles. The guy was with the girl just for the fun of having someone around. The company. He flirted with her and said all of the right things just to make her feel good and while I all ment nothing to him because he dosnt want to get to emotionally attached to someone she started falling for him because she thought he was being true and he kisses her like she was "fragile". Once he saw the she was starting to love him he ended it and left her broken. She hates him for it but dosnt really want him to hurt too because she still cares. All in all this is a really sad song, so much meaning and feeling behind the lyrics. Definitely one of my favorite gavin degraw songs.
