Thought I knew you, I just didn't see your way
The things you do and the wicked games you play
Like I could be sitting right on top of the sky
And I would see the most beautiful bird die

You can break my bones, you can break my heart
Pull me together or tear me apart
Just know that I'd never do the same
Call me by my name

Pleasure and pain, they go hand in hand
Like a bird in rain that has chosen not to land
Suffice it to say that the older the bird grew
Was the price it'd pay for enjoying the view

You can break my bones, you can break my heart
Pull me together or tear me apart
Just know that I'd never do the same
Call me by my name

Thought I knew you, all I knew was what I saw
Then I saw through you, I saw nothing at all
There I watched you as your wings unfurled
And I swear in there I saw the whole wide world

You can break my bones, you can break my heart
Pull me together or tear me apart
Just know that I'd never do the same
Call me by my name
