We found a tender love
It blossomed wild and free
Pure proof was in your arms when you were kissing me
I was an open book
You were an ocean breeze
Rustling through pages
I never should have let you see
Never should have let you see

Was I so wrong being such an open book
And for trusting so soon?
Losing all the tender time it took to love you
Just to crawl away with broken wings
And the pieces of my heart still splintering
The pieces of my heart still splintering

Friends asking where you are say I misunderstood
I say, "he’s gone away, but he’s not gone for good"
Speak of romantic plans we’re looking forward to
Meanwhile, imagining you loving someone new

Was I so wrong being such an open book
And for trusting so soon?
Losing all the tender time it took to love you
Just to crawl away with broken wings
And the pieces of my heart still splintering
The pieces of my heart still splintering

It’s surely over now
But how I ache inside
This ocean full of tears that I’m about to cry
You’re sorry for this pain
Yeah, that’s not what you meant
I’m sorry, too
But my feeling's more permanent

Was I so wrong being such an open book
And for trusting so soon?
Losing all the tender time it took to love you
Just to crawl away with broken wings
And the pieces of my heart still splintering
The pieces of my heart still splintering
The pieces of my heart still
Pieces of my heart.
