shiny new again

i’ve always been by your side

i’ve always tried to help you
when something was wrong

i’ve always picked up the pieces

and i’ve seen you fall apart
and i’ve seen it happen to others, too

and i’ve picked up the pieces
glued them back together
until they were shiny new again

and now i feel like it’s happening
to me and who is here for me

you’re falling apart too how
are you supposed to help me
