The lock is rusted,
And the key won't turn,
The front yards brown,
Where the sun just burnt,
Old porch is missing a board or two,
Mail box's hangin' from one lone screw,
There's a broken window around to the side,
I could get in if I really tired.

What would I do,
Just be looking for you,
Some memories are better left alone,
I'd probably learn real fast,
If I go diggin' through the past,
Just get cut right back,
Down deeper to the bone,
So I'm movin' on,
Got no business climbing back,
Through broken windows.

Tempting me with your same old ways,
Thinking I'd forgotten the darkest days,
Where there was no light,
And there was no love
This place is better off boarded up,
Here I stand at this window pane,
Hoping something in there might have changed.

What would I do,
Just be looking for you,
Some memories are better left alone,
I'd probably learn real fast,
If I go diggin' through the past,
Just get cut right back,
Down deeper to the bone,
So I'm movin' on,
Got no business climbing back,
Through broken windows.

An empty house is all that I can see,
Gotta tell myself there's nothing there for me,

What would I do,
Just be looking for you,
Some memories are better left alone,
I'd probably learn real fast,
If I go diggin' through the past,
Just get cut right back,
Down deeper to the bone,
So I'm movin' on,
Got no business climbing back,
Through broken windows.

Broken windows,
Yeah broken windows,
Broken windows,
Yeah broken windows.
Broken Windows
