Music Monday: Missy Higgins – Unbroken

Lyrics beneath the cut.

Red hand print on the white of your cheek
Pack your bags quiet, while the lion sleeps
Watch your mother put her name to the line
Next to the place where your father signed

And inevitably, what you used to be was
Succumb to the pull of gravity
And you will never, no you will never see with virgin eyes again

‘Cus this is the day that everything changes
And your world stops turning, running straight,
Into the break lights, you’ve come to nothing
This is the day that everything changes and your worlds collide
You know in time you’ll wake to find you’re a little unbroken

Hold the answer to the light to see your future
Two line, blue line tragedy
He brings the medal to the fire for the first time,
tells you it’s the last time and it will be

‘Cus inevitably, what you used to be was
Tainted by the hand of curiosity
And you will never, no you will never see with virgin eyes again

‘Cus this is the day that everything changes
And the world stops turning, running straight,
Into the break lights, you’ve come to nothing
This is the day that everything changes and your worlds collide
You know in time you’ll wake to find you’re a little unbroken

So how can I explain the isolated rain that follows you?
But wouldn’t you agree running always slows you down
So welcome the pain
And stop yourself from delaying it
‘Cus the real life will never go away

‘Cus this is the day that everything changes
And the world stops turning, running straight,
Into the break lights, you’ve come to nothing
This is the day that everything changes and your worlds collide
You know in time you’ll wake to find you’re a little unbroken

Oh, you’re a little unbroken
Oh, a little unbroken, yeah,
You’re, oh, a little unbroken
