Lyrics
Like a child acting so carelessly
You destroyed something you just didn't see
I'm not angry
How could I be angry with a child?

You broke a beautiful thing
And it won't ever mend

Thoughtless child
All wrapped up in the shape of a man
I tried so hard to get you to understand
I'm so sorry
Why am I always the one saying sorry
Like a mother does for a child?

You broke a beautiful thing
And it won't ever mend
I'll never have the pieces again

I hate the way I keep losing things
And I hate the way when I lose something
I never seem to find it again

You broke a beautiful thing
