Lyrics

I was only seventeen when I met Gregory
He said he came from Jupiter, and I was the moon up in his sky
O, how I cried when I heard the news that I was only one of fifty-two

I took the long way home, skipped the cracks, and told my mother lies
She never broke a bone
I say breaking hearts don't count
I tried to mend her...
I'm trying still
But I'm a broken thing that never found its wings, and I never will

I hop along in broken time
I don't belong to nothing
The River has been kind to me
Wind me up and send me on my way
I'm full of broken melodies
Waiting for the day that I'm a Nightingale

Today I woke up on the wrong side of your pillow talk
I called you a fool and pushed you out the right side of my bed
You hit your head, and I hurt your pride
You thought I'd eat all the words between your teeth
Well, think twice

Because I hop along in broken time
I don't belong to nothing
The River has been kind to me
Wind me up and send me on my way
I'm full of broken melodies
Waiting for the day that I'm a Nightingale
