I love the sound of vases splintering on the floor 
I adore the music of my anger hitting the door to rebound
And resound in our ears
Echoing and crashing on my newly mopped floor
Tinkling broken china makes me feel like I’m in control
Each shard is revenge cutting into your soul
              You deserve it [yes sir, you do]
Look at what you did to me
           [the hurt in my eyes]
                                             [The rage in my heart]
                                                           [The sadness in the folds of my hands]
[I’m hurt, I’m broken]
Like the china on the floor
Never to be put back together
Quite the same again

Take your hand off my wrist, boy
Who are you trying to convince?
You don’t need me, remember?                            Go home
                                                               [Knock over things in your apartment]
                                                                 [Tear down the curtains in your rage]
                                                      [Rip all the pictures of us and throw them away]
                                                    [Pound the pillows, Speed in your car, curl your fists]
                                                           [Crawl to that girl you messed around with]
                                                                         I don’t care, I don’t care
Because I’m sick and tired of you
Coming home with her lipstick on your collar 
Her perfume reeking
All over my sheets               while you sleep 
                                                      next to me
                                                            [You lying piece of garbage]

Get out of my house,
You obviously don’t belong to me
Your a stranger 
You might sleep in his spot
And still drive his car
And smile his smile with the dimples that I love

But your not him
He would never hurt me
And I’m so hurt,                              [ I’m so wounded, I’m bruised and battered]
Like a shark you chewed me up and spit me out
On the floor
Like a broken vase
Never to be put back the same              [But instead just a bit stronger]
[With the best glue in the world, experience] 
[To hold me together even better]
And afterwards, guys can throw me around
Devour my heart and dissect it five times over
And I’ll never break again                      [They don’t stand a chance]

I’ll never break, baby
