Kina Grannis – Delicate lyrics

You said, "Be careful, it's delicate, things can just crumble apart."
But it's not the same for me
It's not the same for me

So I kept treading so carelessly
Thin lines that splintered my ground
But I closed my eyes to them
I closed my eyes to them

How did you know that I couldn't be what everyone wanted me to be?
And how did you know that I wouldn't see when everything falls away from me?
When everything falls away from me

One day I woke in the rubble
Knee-deep in damage I'd done
And I was ashamed of it
How did it come to this?


When everything falls away from me
