WHEN SOMETHING'S BROKEN
Patty Griffin


I got no defense, baby

I got nothin' but a burned out light

My whole life don't depend on

Whether you forgive me tonight

I already know the feeling

I've walked the floor before

I can tell when something's broken

And I know when I ain't welcome anymore


City lights ain't fireflies

This hole ain't a home if you trust(?)

I never intended to be the

Promises I made to you


Paint is peeling down the hallway

A Brand new lock is on the door

I know when something's broken

And I know when I ain't welcome anymore


I don't care who's listenin'

I don't care what the neighbors think

Only time the truth gets told

Is when it's surfaced by a drink

Only time you heart my heart

You run behind a door

I know when something's broken

And I know when I'm not welcome anymore


I've got no defense baby

I've got nothing but a burned out light
