Fragile Thing

In my dream, I see you dancing
Then the silence rushes in
And you’re trapped there in the footlights
I see my sad little angel, her dress torn and thin
Like a flag of surrender, just twisting in the wind

At the heart of all we wanted
In the soul of all we need
We are beggars begging for forgiveness
With a whisper in the dark, with a cold hard scream
From the first steps we take to the last breath we breathe

Love is a fragile thing
Time is seldom kind in waiting
Love is a fragile thing
Sometimes we get lost in the slipstream of all our hopes and dreams
Love is a fragile thing

And love, oh love has got its graveyards
In every little town
On every dusty road that we travel
See the tombstones rise as the sun goes down
On the dreams that have died with no one around

Love is a fragile thing
Time is seldom kind in waiting
Love is a fragile thing
Sometimes we get lost in the slipstream of all our hopes and dreams
Love is a fragile thing

And I let you down, I let you down again my angel
I know it’s much too late, but I’ve got to say I’m sorry

Love is a fragile thing
Time is seldom kind in waiting
Love is a fragile thing
Sometimes we get lost in the slipstream of all our hopes and dreams
Sometimes everything we wanted was never what it seemed
Love is a fragile thing
