Miranda Lambert - Things That Break

I was born a fool in a china cabinet
Drawn to the delicate like it's a magnet
Perfume bottle on a mirror tray
Tempered glass on a windown pane
Timeless face on a pocket watch
Time is ticking

I leave it all in ruins
'Cause I don't know what I'm doing
I'm hard on things that matter
Hold a heart so tight it shatters
So I stay away from things that break

Can't make a man a promise
With the best of intentions
Drive two hundred miles on a rundown engine
Put a blanket underneath a hollow tree
When the wind blows hard it will fall on me
Stick around long and you will see
Time is ticking

I leave it all in ruins
'Cause I don't know what I'm doing
I'm hard on things that matter
Hold a heart so tight it shatters
So I stay away from things that break

Me, I don't ever wanna get too close
Or be held responsible
For all the pain that you can't see
Somebody once broke me

I leave it all in ruins
'Cause I don't know what I'm doing
I'm hard on things that matter
Hold a heart so tight it shatters
So I stay away from things that break
