Shards of happiness

I can see it at a glance
This isn't your real smile
You know it
 
You speak, but I don't hear you
I look, but I don't see you
I know
 
Oh, we've been running circles around this for far too long
We are still together but no longer as one
 
These are just the shards of our happiness
All the beauty we once shared is broken once again
I tried to make it whole again1 but collapsed under the pressure
All that remains are shards of happiness
 
I nod, but haven't got a clue
I kiss you, but you won't kiss me back
You know it
 
You touch me, but I'm not touched by you2
You know my body, but you don't know me
I know
 
Oh, we've been running circles around this for far too long
We are still together but no longer together as one
 
These are just the shards of our happiness
All the beauty we once shared is broken once again
I tried to make it whole again but collapsed under the pressure
All that remains are shards of happiness
 
It falls on the floor
And shatters apart
Spread over the ground
It lies around us
We're alone again
 
These are just the shards of our happiness
All the beauty we once shared is broken once again
 
These are just the shards of our happiness
All the beauty we once shared is broken once again
I tried to make it whole again but collapsed under the pressure
All that remains are shards of happiness
 
Oh...
All that remains
All that remains are shards of happiness
 
  • 1. Literally: glue it together again
  • 2. This is a wordplay in Dutch on physically touching someone and mentally being touched by someone. In English this is similar but the sentence structure has to change. Literally it says: You touch me, but don't touch me
Thanks!
