Caught in a moment that won't let go
Trying to find my way out
When movin' on is a dead end road
Might as well turn back around

And I'm in the dark
I'm completely numb
Like a shadow that's turned to stone
Trying to figure out
how two become one
then end up so alone

I'm broken, wide open
You've shattered all we had
And I'm through with hoping
Somehow I'm gonna put the pieces back
I've cried me an ocean
Now there's nothing left inside
I'm here not knowing
Where do you go when the tears run dry?

I close my eyes and I breathe you in
It's always and never the same
How do we end up strangers again
When I'm still dreaming your name

And I'm calling out
Are you hearing me?
I don't know where I belong
Now it's so unclear
Why do I wish you hear
When I'm already gone

oo oo yeah

I'm broken, wide open
You've shattered all we had
And I'm through with hoping
Somehow I'm gonna put the pieces back
I've cried me an ocean
Now there's nothing left inside
I'm here not knowing
Where do you go when the tears run dry?

Maybe I should runaway
Maybe I should disappear (ooh)
Maybe I should find a place
Where no one knows I'm there
Anywhere but here

I'm broken, wide open
You've shattered all we had (all we had)
And I'm through with hoping
Somehow I'm gonna put the pieces back
I've cried me an ocean
Now there's nothing left inside
I'm here not knowing
Where do you go when the tears run dry?

    General Commenti can't believe no one posted on this. i joined basically to say how AMAZING this song is. clay's vocals are OUTSTANDING ON IT. anyways, the song is (i think) about how his heart was broken...bascially that.

    General CommentThis song is so gorgeous and Clay once again blows me away with his performance of it. He needs to record it. End of story. (PLEASE Clay? :))
