I locked my keys in the car
I'm pleading for some change
The meter treats me like a stranger now
Flashing zeros

I'm juggling a drink too full
While tugging on a leash that you pull
And jogging my memory for
The way to your door

I have been broken open
By my most trusted friend
I was too wild card
You were their safe bet
Ive been broken open

I'm up and down that way
It's easier to say that I'm doing okay
Than bother to explain
The water rising

Threw out your crystal ball and your weather vain
Picasso don;t premeditate he just paint
Tonight it's so easy
To overflow

I have broken open
Was a perfect gentleman
Now I'm smashing champagne, tying cans
Feel like celebrating

I have been broken open
Dug to china with their hands
When you asked me if I'd like to dance
I've been broken open

Flow over me, flow over, flow
Over flow

It feels so strange to feel good
And when I was the fire you were wood
So when I was petrified
You understood

I have been broken open
This was not my master plan
I was comfortable watching from the stands
I have been broken open

All my edges are exposed
I was once content alone
Now you are the one that I call home
I've been broken open

[Repeat: x7]
Flow over me, flow over, flow
