The Fragile

Nine Inch Nails

She shines
in a world of ugliness
She matters
when everything is meaningless

She doesn't see her beauty
She tries to get away
it's just that nothing seems worth saving
I can't watch her slip away

I won't let you fall apart

She reads the minds of all the people as they pass her by
hoping someone can see
If i could fix myself I'd-
but it's too late for me

I won't let you fall apart

We'll find the perfect place to go where we can run and hide
I'll build a wall and we can keep them on the other side
...but they keep waiting
...and picking...

It's something i have to do
I was there, too
Before everything else

I was like you
