Shatter or Break, by Allison McCulloch

Shatter or Break

The unexpected comes next
And you of all people should know
So you're telling me it's not predictable
What to do or where to go?

Hold to mercy's hand you say
And work until you sweat
But love still lies a long way off
And money is all you get

        Oh this moment is delicate and so is this place
        If you aren't careful or you are, it will surely change
        Yeah just like our hearts, this moment will shatter or break

Find a key to unlock the door
Too the mysteries that we fear
Then you find you lost the enchantment
Because the mysteries were what you held dear

Well you say hold onto fading dreams
Like the rest of us do
Actually, wait a minute
What am I doing listening to you
        Oh this moment is delicate and so is this place
        If you aren't careful or you are, it will surely change
        Yeah just like our hearts, this moment will shatter or break

There was a man that I loved once
And I wouldn't said I loved him so
But I was afraid cause society
as a woman told me no
So as a woman I left my feelings untold

So be careful what you learn and decide to take
Cause this moment will shatter or break
Shatter or break
This moment will shatter or break
