There's a hot hard hurt
Burnin' under her skin
And it pricks her like thorns
And it's needles and pins
And it twists in her body
And I know what it is
And I'm paying in pain
It's the cost of the high
Till the weight of the secret
And the weight of the lie
Makes my heart want to bust
Feel the ache as time goes by
Getting better and worse
Getting better and worse
And there's a screw that I tighten
As I dream of the kiss
And it twists and it cuts me
And y'know what it is?
It's a fragment of love
From a splintering heart
It tears her apart, yeaaah
Not as much as this
So you save up your tears
For the moments alone
Till the splinters you gather
Leave you glass-hard and numb
And the same sun is shining
On the old and the young, yeaaah
On the saints and the sinners
On the weak and the strong, yeaaah
There's a burning and freezing
And a cross for a kiss
So she learns to stop dreaming
And you know how it is
With fragments of love
And this splintering heart
And this splintering heart
With the fragments
With the fragments
