Mysterious, blown in with the night
All this beauty captured in a frame
Visibly shaken, but never stirred
Drives them insane
I see the way she plays her men
And I know I've got to know her name
She's so beautifully broken
Shaped by the wind
Dangerously twisted
Here I go again

I see the way she cast her spell
It's like drowning in moonlight
Discards them she's done
They're lost in her twilight
I watch her move from star to star
And I wonder why, why it feels so right

She's so beautifully broken
You can barely see the flaw
Especially from a distance
Which is always how I fall

Why do I fall for the dangerous ones
The ones that never learned to let go
And why do I lie to myself
And pretend that I can break her
When she's already been so
Beautifully broken

Why do I fall for the dangerous ones
The ones that don't know how to let go
And why do I lie to myself
And pretend that I could break her
When she's already been so

Beautifully broken
Shaped by the wind
Dangerously twisted
Here I go again, here I go again

    He comparing a woman to a horse in a sense. This promising colt or girl (inside and out) has grown up to be a beautiful woman. She has literally been broken by life itself and experiences (birth, death, hard knocks to kissing the sky to love) that helped shape her emotionally, intellectually, and physically. Her heartbreaks have molded her when breaking others hearts. She is a china doll. She has been broken and the scar that remains gives her the flaw that can barely seen if at all. This flaw is what gives her her unique beauty.

    Quite obvious; two kinds of beautiful women in the world. The first, settle and raise a family, stay pair bonded. The other, move from man to man, breaking hearts and taking names.

    A woman that cannot be tamed to the best of your desires. She has broken herself into who she will always be.

    It seems to me that he keeps picking the wrong women and he knows it - it's just the way it is - he picks the ones that are "shaped by the wind" -"dangerously twisted" -drawn in by the mystery even after seeing the way she plays men -destined for failure and destruction -he has no recourse but to let her do her job and break his heart by throwing his hat in the ring!

    Play it out like racing faster, faster, faster -till the thrill of the speed overcomes the fear of death!
