Trying to live and love,
With a heart that can't be broken,
Is like trying to see the light with eyes that can't be opened.
Yeah, we both carry baggage,
We picked up on our way, so if you love me do it gently,
And I will do the same.

We may shine, we may shatter,
We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.

I'll let you look inside me, through the stains and through the cracks,
And in the darkness of this moment,
You see the good and bad.
But try not to judge me, 'cause we've walked down different paths,
But it brought us here together, so I won't take that back.

We may shine, we may shatter,
We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.

We might be oil and water, this could be a big mistake,
We might burn like gasoline and fire,
It's a chance we'll have to take.

We may shine, we may shatter,
We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
And we are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
We are glass.

    It can be a "love" song or an "any" relationship song. We are human and fragile and we deal with many people everyday and i just wanted be accepted for me.

    We all have things that we are not proud of, we just have to let ourselves shine. We may get mad or break down but we are all still human and and we get changed but what is around us

    That we are all human that we all have feelings that can be hurt, that we are all fragile in our own ways that just one simple person or thing can shatter us

    This song really gets to the heart of love and relationships. Like it says "we are shaped by the light we let through us"
    to me this says it all.
