When This Bough Breaks

lyrics

When this bough breaks, dear, we must fall, limbs entangled, bones and all,
and when the wind blows, dear, our own words will sway us gently out the door.
The piece of you you'd dared to give away: I never knew quite how to keep it safe, now I must bear its wounded cries and moans
'til I grow a new bough for it to sleep upon and cry no more. Don't

count to ten, don't say goodbye, 'cause words are just the most common of lies.
Breathe deep the breath you dared not speak, or try to drink the water you shed in your sleep but

when this bough breaks, dear, we must fall, hearts entangled, bones and all,
and when the wind blows, dear, our own words will send us crashing down below,
and a little part of you will split away that I had never learned how to keep safe,
but I will bear its wounded cries and moans 'til I grow
a new bough for it to sleep upon
and cry no more.
