Glass Heart

She’s a Saturday night
Rum and whiskey
But just one drink
makes her tipsy

She’s a Sunday morning
First row church pew
And beach towel sitting
With an ocean view

She’s a nightly call
Home to her mother
And fiercely protective
Of her sister and brother

She’s a goodnight
Bedside prayer
And a slice of pizza
At the county fair

She’s earbuds
And a morning run
Legs pumping
Toward the rising sun

She’s ripped blue jeans
And a concert t-shirt
Or a black crop top
And a miniskirt

There’s a part of her
People get to know
But another part
She won’t show

She’s got a glass heart
Someone let it fall
And it broke apart

There was a guy
Who treated her bad
Some fool who had
No idea what he had

She’s trying to hold on
A little longer
Every day she gets
A little bit stronger

She’s putting the pieces
Back in their place
But Lord it takes so much
strength and grace

Right now, her world
Seems dark
But her faith
Will light a spark

And mend her glass heart

She’s going Dutch
On the first date
And stealing the French fries
Right off your plate

She’s dancing alone
At the shore of the lake
And eating a second slice
Of banana cake

She’s a Colorado
mountaintop climber
And a Pacific island
Seaside diver

She’ll take the covers
When she’s lying in bed
And on a karaoke mic
She’s drop dead

She’ll get lost
In her own driveway
And most of the time
She’s gotta have it her way

She’s a slow walk
in the full moonlight
Or goodbye tears
and fading taillights

There’s some of her
The world gets to know
But another part
She won’t show

She’s got a glass heart
Someone let it fall
And it broke apart

There was a guy
Who treated her bad
Some fool who had
No idea what he had

She’s trying to hold on
A little longer
Every day she gets
A little bit stronger

She’s putting the pieces
Back in their place
But Lord it takes so much
strength and grace

Right now, her world
Seems dark
But her faith
Will light a spark

And mend her glass heart

If by some
divine circumstance
That girl gives
you a chance

Don’t you dare
let it fall apart
Because she only has
One glass heart
