LyricsEdit

Heaven is paved with broken glass

Since your hammer struck my heart

This world, a hell of trees and grass

All is wrong like north gone south

There's a bad taste in my mouth


Everything was stars

'Til you had a notion to leave

Beauty marks turn scars

Bet you had a laugh up your sleeve


Congratulations love love love love

You made a fool of me and physics


Heaven is paved with broken glass

Since your hammer struck my heart

This world, a hell of trees and grass

All is wrong like north gone south

There's a bad taste in my mouth


Everything was gold

'Til you thought you were above me

Soldier turns to rogue

Pretty turns to pretty ugly


Congratulations love love love love

You made a fool of me and physics


And I'm feeling cheated

And I'm feeling used

And what's even worse is

You just look amused


Heaven is paved with broken glass

Since your hammer struck my heart

This world, a hell of trees and grass

Since your hammer struck my heart


Heaven is paved with broken glass
