Lyrics

Broken Glass Windows

Written By: Jimmy Reeves

Bleeding thoughts
and broken glass windows
You just cannot
catch a break in this dirty town

And it goes on and on and on (4x)

You're always a hand down
and you're down on your hands and knees
You're cleaning floors
And cursing the man
Who's left you to your own
To your own defenses

And it goes on and on and on (4x)

I wish that I could take
All of your sweet pain
I'd wash it all away
So you'd never feel it again

But it goes on and on and on

On and on and on (2x)
you just want someone who loves you the most
On and on and on (4X)

Bleeding thoughts
and broken glass windows

Your Love Is A Precious Thing

Written By: Jimmy Reeves

Your Love is a Precious Thing

Sometimes I think
God sent me to you
Just to let you know
That sometimes a man
does just what he says he'll do

And it breaks my heart to know that
life has taught you not to trust
But who can argue with the life you've lived
And who can make a father give what he has not?

You've got to find your own way to forgiving

But I know it takes time
and searching to break through
the bitter walls and
get free from that burden

You can trust me (4x)

I'll lead you on - delicately

Because your love is - a precious thing
