"Fragile" as written by and Gordon Matthew Sumner....
Tears fall in slivers, you broke my shades
The light too bright, let me bury my heart
Filter emotions of green, cowardice gives blue
A restricted view, let me open my heart

I have a fleeting love
Searching when it lands
Fragile
Needing precious hands
Fragile, fragile, fragile

You eat my energy, give me more rope
Nail in the wall, let me hang my heart
Hang my heart

I have a fleeting love
Searching when it lands
Fragile
Needing precious hands
Fragile, fragile, fragile

    Song MeaningIt's about love, and how it is, by turns, wonderful and insufferably painful. Great little song, without which there would be no R.E.M.
