lyrics

We dreamed two pictures hanging on the wall
Side by side downstairs in the hall
Thought that they’d be there forever - thought they’d never change
We didn’t think that they could fall down

We thought the nails we used were tough enough
To hold our pictures there when things got rough
Who knew the earth could quake so violently
We didn’t mean for them to fall down

We are shattered, we are scattered,
But there’s still beauty lying on the hardwood floor

Are we willing to get down on our hands and knees
And try our best to pick up every jagged piece
We might get cut sorting through which are yours and mine
We won’t let the broom to sweep us away

Where they used to hang, the wall’s a little pale
And you can see the scars that used to hold the nails
And in the blood-stained shards of glass sprinkled around
There’s our mosaic lying on the ground
