You told me everything was ok;
You told me all was fine.
You said I carried your heart in my hand
And that you were holding mine.
But hearts, you know, are difficult things,
They’re always changing size.
A heart can change in a matter of seconds
And take you by surprise.
A single act of kindness
Can cause a heart to grow,
Just like a single situation
Can alter what you know.
When my heart slipped from your fingers
And shattered on the ground,
I never thought I could recover,
Never thought I’d come around.
But I pulled my heart together
And discovered what was true:
You dropped and broke my heart, my dear,
Because it was just too big for you.
