Smithereens (Lennox Annie)

I saw your picture It made me sorry For all the things I never said It seems that you Have cause to worry It seems that you Don't wish me well Behind the victim Behind the trouble Are all the things You've not expressed I see you standing behind your mother I see you hiding behind her dress So don't make me sad I couldn't stand to watch you fall 'cause everybody has a tender heart Remember this I didn't mean to break it down to smithereens I heard you crying I learned the story I saw the shadows behind the past They fall behind you And creep up slowly We're only human Behind the mask So don't take me down I couldn't stand to watch you fall 'cause everybody has a broken heart Remember this I couldn't stand to break it down to smithereens And you say Everybody is an island of their own And you say Everybody has a tender heart Remember this I couldn't stand to break it down to smithereens I didn't mean to break it down I didn't mean to smithereens Everybody is an island to themselves Don't you know Everybody is an island to themselves
