I'm interested in diamonds
But they're kept in a glass case
They page someone from jewelry
Stand on eggshells while I wait

Each and every thing protected
With styrofoam and bubble wrap
But not everything is meant to stay together
Yeah some things are bound to crack

Sometimes I think I might just have to break something
I'd just like to hear it crash
May this serve as a reminder
That nothing ever lasts
No nothing ever lasts

So you're perched in your high tower
Making many small requests
I'd rather you asked the world of me
Than to safely hedge your bets

You thought you covered all your bases
Made sure you crossed your Ts
But if you cut my lifespan into little pieces
I'll be sure to make a scene

Sometimes I think I really have to break something
I just wanna hear it crash
May it serve as a reminder
I'm not something you can have

I've been biting my tongue
Seeing both sides
Keeping the peace
Changing your mind
Taking the hit
Making the call
Now I just wanna put my fist in the wall

Sometimes I think I might just have to break something
I'd just like to hear it crash
I hope you will remember
How nothing ever lasts
Nothing ever lasts

Yeah it's OK to break something
You'll survive yeah you'll be fine
Tear down the paper walls around you
Build it right the second time
Build it right the second time
