This song is sad ~ but it's brilliant. We all have some kind of experience that this song touches inside us. Maybe it's our own experience or maybe it's a family member or friend who was/is in a situation.

We go back when we know we're better off leaving something/someone behind. And I love the word shattered....so often people are "shattered" in some way by the time they leave something that they have given too much time to. Take a listen. In my opinion, you really have to listen to the song and read the lyrics to get it all.




Shattered ~ O.A.R.
In a way, I need a change
From this burnout scene
Another time, another town
Another everything
But it's always back to you


Stumble out, in the night
From the pouring rain
Made the block, sat and thought
There's more I need
It's always back to you

But I'm good without ya
Yeah, I'm good without you
Yeah, yeah, yeah

How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can't define what I'm after
I always turn the car around
Give me a break let me make my own pattern
All that it takes is some time but I'm shattered
I always turn the car around

I had no idea that the night
Would take so damn long
Took it out, on the street
While the rain still falls
Push me back to you

But I'm good without ya
Yeah, I'm good without you
Yeah, yeah, yeah

How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can't define what I'm after
I always turn the car around
Give me a break let me make my own pattern
All that it takes is some time but I'm shattered
I always turn the car around

Give it up, give it up, baby
Give it up, give it up, now
Now

How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can't define what I'm after
I always turn the car around
All that I feel is the realness I'm faking
Taking my time but it's time that I'm wasting
Always turn the car around

How many times can I break till I shatter?
Over the line can't define what I'm after
I always turn the car around

Don't wanna turn that car around
I gotta turn this thing around

Yes, that's a great tune.....

I enjoy their tune "Heard the World" as well. I can't find a "clean" version of it on the web, it's a gem though.

"This Town" on their myspace pages is nice too
