Lyrics

This broken down house has weathered many storms
Just like our love
It kept me warm
When the wind was never-ending and the downpour didn't stop
Just like our love
I never felt a drop

Now it's broken down beams and it doesn't hold its form
And only in my dreams does it hide me from the storm

Just like our love
It wasn't built to last

And I keep coming back to these scattered remains
But just like our love
It's all in vain

Cause it's broken down dreams and it doesn't hold it's form
And only in my dreams does it hide me

Just like our love
It wasn't built to last

So should I just let it go
Let the last piece fall?
No one will know it was ever here at all
Or should I just walk away
Let it all cave in
Knowing I may never see you again?

In one final effort I hide beneath its skeleton shell
Just like our love
I'm as stubborn as hell

Just like our love
It wasn't built to last
