"Everything Breaks Sometime" as written by and Jewel Kilcher....
Under the shadows, forbidden and hot
Desire grows, more often than not

I'm sorry's a stupid word, a stupid thing to say
Especially considering it's not like I planned it this way

But I'm sorry is all that there is left of me
I'm so sorry this love made me hollow and left you empty

Maybe I could have loved you better
Maybe you should have loved me more
Maybe our hearts were just next in line
Maybe everything breaks sometime
Everything breaks sometime

It's hard to believe it's boiled down to this
It seems so surreal this won't be healed by a kiss
It's hard to stare at you knowing you like I have
I used to feel so close, now I feel so bad

My heart's filled with thunderstorms and I'm ready to burst
And I've lost my favorite harbor and I'll weather for the worst

Maybe I could have loved you better
Maybe you should have loved me more
Maybe our hearts were just next in line
Maybe everything breaks sometime
Everything breaks sometime
I'm so sorry,
Everything breaks sometime

    I hate these lines, just because they are so true and a depressing fact. Someone I felt close to was at a social meeting just a couple of months ago, I hadn't seen her for a while and It was so hard to see her the other side of the room, knowing her like I do but knowing that it means nothing, knowing that it only hurts so bad.

    General Commentto me this song is about letting go of a relationship, one that was so great, but suddenly, maybe for no apparent reason, its is just not as powerful as before. its kind of like coming to terms with the break up "everything breaks sometime" - it was bound to happen one day.
