Patty Griffin – When Something's Broken lyrics

I got no defense, baby
I got nothin' but a burned out light
My whole life don't depend on
Whether you forgive me tonight
I already know the feeling
I've walked the floor before
I can tell when something's broken
And I know when I ain't welcome anymore

City lights ain't fireflies
This hole ain't a home if you trust(?)
I never intended to be the
Promises I made to you

Paint is peeling down the hallway
A Brand new lock is on the door
I know when something's broken
And I know when I ain't welcome anymore

I don't care who's listenin'
I don't care what the neighbors think
Only time the truth gets told
Is when it's surfaced by a drink
Only time you heart my heart
You run behind a door
I know when something's broken
And I know when I'm not welcome anymore

I've got no defense baby
I've got nothing but a burned out light
