She’s a broken lady, waiting to be mended
Like a potter would mend a broken vase
A broken lady, waiting to be mended
And have what’s left of the pieces put back in place

Her love is like a fortress around a man she would have died for
Taking care to take of all he needed
But the ladies fortress slowly turned into a prison
And the warning signs he gave she never heeded
She vowed every morning that what god joined together
No one else in the world could pull apart
And then the walls came tumbling to the ground
And her world came crashing down around her heart

She’s a broken lady, waiting to be mended
Like a potter would mend a broken vase
A broken lady, waiting to be mended
And have what’s left of the pieces put back in place

She’s a broken lady, waiting to be mended
Like a potter would mend a broken vase
A broken lady, waiting to be mended
And have what’s left of the pieces put back in place

    Life, bad decisions and love of a man have caught up with her. She lies limp and broken, on the shore of life waiting to be mended by time and better choices.

    It means a trusting lady gave her whole world to one she felt was her only world and he crushed her like a bug under a shoe destroying her beyond repair now she waits for the end of life to fix her or take her back to a heavenly world she once had
