delicate lyrics – kina grannis

“delicate”

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

i kept treading so carelessly
thin lines that splintered my ground
but i closed my eyes to them
i closed my eyes to them

and 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?

and 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
[x2]
when everything falls away from me
