(Feat. The Matrix)

I wear the red shoes
With the holes
To remind me
What we went through
Sit down here
Kick 'em off enough
Not had enough of you
I tell you
You know
The car you drive
Keeps breaking down
And never starts
Next thing
I'm pulling up to you
We're in the backseat
Driving it home
No one wants
To be alone

Chorus:
What do you do?
What do you do
When everything
Is broken?
What do you say?
What do you say
When no words
Fit the moment?
'Cuz you're not here
And even if you were
All I could say
Is what do I do?
What do I do?
We're broken
But I can't
Throw us away

The video
Of our vacation's
Chewed up in the drawer
Beside me
She thinks I never got
To watch it
I'm so glad
I made a copy
The sky
Got bitter twisted
Just like you and me
I miss it
You snap it
Bend it
Burn it
Then you find
That you can't fix it
Fall back on whatever
Still remains

(Chorus)

Breaking you in
Breaking your heart
I was taking it all
And I tore you apart
Breaking me in
Breaking my heart
And the damage was done
But I took what you got
We were breakin' it
Smashin' it
Takin' it
Lovin' it
Hatin' it
Drivin' it home
And now I'm all
Now I'm all alone

Oh, yeah (4x)

(Chorus)

What do I do?
We're broken
But I can't
Throw us away
