Sinéad Quinn — Can't Break Down lyrics

"I Can't Break Down"

Now I know I can handle this
I close my mouth and clench my fist
I've lived this day in a thousand ways
But there's a flaw to add to my list
Go on squeeze a little more
Cause If you scream I'll just ignore you,
I've rehearsed this scene in a million dreams
You're gettin' closer to my core

And I'm so damn frustrated
Losing breath and now I'm shaking
Gotta keep myself from breaking down
Someone get me out

Tear don't you fall
Eyes don't you cry
Need to get me round this corner
I can't break down, break down
Pride don't cave in
Hair don't let go
While I'm hoping that you can greet me
I can't break down, break down, break down

I've locked it out for long enough
I'm really good at playing rough now
I've been prepared and not really cared
But being brave is getting tough

Chin don't start to quiver
Hands now don't you shiver
Gotta keep myself from breaking down
Someone get me out
Someone let me out

Tear don't you fall
Eyes don't you cry
Need to get me round this corner
I can't break down, break down
Pride don't cave in
Hair don't let go
While I'm hoping that you can greet me
I can't break down, break down

I smile like the cat who's got the cream
I'm vulnerable and I know you see me
There's so much I wanna say,
But this lump in my throat makes me walk away, away, away, away

Tear don't you fall
Eyes don't you cry
Need to get me round this corner
I can't break down, break down
Pride don't cave in
Head don't let go

Tear don't you fall (Tear don't you fall)
Eyes don't you cry (Eyes don't you cry)
Need to get me round this corner
I can't break down, break down
Pride don't cave in (Pride don't cave in)
Head don't let go
While I'm hoping that you can greet me
I can't break down, break down
Can't break down, break down
