Song Description

more than just about transforming pain around a break up, the song is also about dealing with one's mortality and "growing up" despite not wanting to, and how the pain of the break up reminds us of greater pains or losses in life.

Story Behind the Song

the song was written in response to a former boyfriend's attempt to be a friend after he ended our romantic relationship

Lyrics

you can break my heart for good
wash the salty dreams from the shore

take your hand from the cuff of my sleeve
Turn away 'cause i don't need to believe
you still care

I need an anvil strong enough
to pound my pain to blades

cause you were right
you were right
you were right

a boy met a girl in a parking lot
he said, hey would you
like to play hopscotch?
she said, 'i would but they tell me
i'm not young enough
anymore'

they drew me a deadline
built me a box to live in
and he said, 'song birds
escape the night'

cause you're right
you're right
you're right


we get one set of wings
when we fly the nest
some catch a ride
on a rocket ship
but, then tattered and burned,
its a long stretch home
and you wish you had
someone to carry you


You can take my heart for good
wash the salty dreams from the shore

take your hand from the cuff of my sleeve
Turn away 'cause i don't need to believe
you still care

I need an anvil
strong enough
to pound my pain
to blades
